    Hello, I might be a writer

    Hello everyone. I think I might be a writer. I've always daydreamed and had a wild imagination. I also used to smoke alot of pot so maybe thats why i never tried writing before. Stoners are kinda spacey. A little over a year ago I was in a roll over accident where my head went out the window of my friends car and I smashed my head. I lost my left eye and spent about 2 months either in a coma or dazed from the head injury. I've been writing short stories about my life and my lifestyle choices that have literally shaped the man I am today. I'd love for you to read the story that is my life and tell me if it is something that people would enjoy. My mechanics are terrible as is my vocabulary because i never graduated high school or picked up a book other than The Bourne or Harry Potter series. As soon as i find a place to post the introduction of my book I hope that you read it.
