Memoirs of the Tried and Failed… and Try Again

(Disclaimer, this is a work of fiction not my actual memoirs)

I’m gonna now tell you about one of the worst weekends I’ve ever had the fortune of experiencing. It starts in early July 2015, on a Friday night. I’d done pretty well that week, I managed to make it to Friday without any incidents. That’s what we call progress people, I know I haven’t given you the reader (the one and only reader) much back story to myself nor the origin of my black dog; and that’s cause I can’t pin point it. Think of me like this; a very ugly portrait. There wasn’t one lonely stroke that painted the entire picture, it takes many stabs and dashes of the brush. Two people can stare at it for several hours and each see different things.

First Person: it looks like an amalgam of refuse and various unsanitary objects.

Second Person: no, I’d say its a mountain of fecal matter, each piece piled upon the other in order to make the shape of a man.

I know it’s not exactly great writing on my part, to just be introduced to someone in the sea of life, without any explanation as to why he’s drifting towards the shores of death. Oh, no wait… that’s what every fucking story does. I mean if everyone else does it that means it must be correct, right? Cause that’s what society teaches us; just do what everybody else is doing and you’ll be fine. See that way of thinking never sat well with me, so instead I did the complete opposite; which is how we arrive to one late night Friday in July.

Memoirs of the Tried and Failed and Try Again

(Disclaimer, this is a work of fiction not my actual memoirs)

Yeah so we’re back to this, sorry people but I’ve got a story to tell; it’s not an important story nor is it a very extraordinary or inspiring story. But it is the story of an everyday guy, someone who has just enough to get by, who only sees what he needs and can’t even think about what he wants… but all he ever does is dream. If this is you then keep reading.

DDWID - 10th October

Memoirs of the Tried and Failed and Try Again

(Disclaimer, this is a work of fiction not my actual memoirs)

Okay so right off the bat, full disclaimers; I am not a writer… Not a good one at least. I’m about as literate as a Charlie Kelly but if you’re reading this then you clearly have no taste so no worries- but if you happen to be a literature snob who has had the misfortune of coming across my work, then I apologise, so now you can go fuck yourself up your fat fucking ass.

To tell the story I want to tell I’m gonna have to begin with October 10th 2012, when things were better? I don’t want to say better but I’ve got about as ranged a vocabulary as your local takeaway. 2012 was just the last decent year I can remember; even tough my grandmother died, and I was close to my grandmother she raised me. But her death drove me to live, really live, like follow your dreams type of live. So in the corner of some shitty dinner I don’t want to name because they’ve got enough attention coming their way, I proposed my plan to a prospective business partner.
