Write, write and write some more

My Broken Brain the book is done, complete, finito, over, finished, dun,dun,dun. Actually i thought so until yesterday i decided to read it from chapter one. I’m sure i have read it before but i do not remember reading from the beginning . Small bits and pieces are there but not an entire story.

I often talk to people explaining one of the chapters where i am lying still about to die. The grim reaper visits to take me and so i tell the story of what i think i wrote. Now as i reread i am astounded at what i actually write wow i think where do i get this from! I know it is a story perhaps i am adding some exciting reading as neither i or any one actually knows how we go. I do know one thing that the words i write come from somewhere. I also know that deep down there must be some kind of truth to this. I do find myself in tears and sobbing once i read certain bits. Well find out for yourself- read how the reaper bowed his head closed his fiery eyes and walked off into the dark still night leaving me for another time another day.

As i read further there are small bits i correct, not much a few full stops and capital letters here and there. I read a paragraph and feel i must add a piece which i seem to have left out. I then say to myself don’t do that Bevan because a few lines later i have indeed written those very words i now rewrite. Delete, delete, delete.

I am a third into my book and i do feel captivated i do know that most of what i write are stories told to me by family and friends. I can also see that a lot of the stories being as true as i know or hear them to be. I will continue to read  my book although not edited by a professional it does seem quite readable to me. Also people can read it knowing that i do have a brain injury but i am not disabled i am differently able.

My great challenge now is to be able to publish it before i leave for the New York Marathon. I do know that i will find a way i have to.

please remember to donate to my TBI awareness campaign help get me to the NYM. A small donation from many will get me there.
