Johnny Came Marching Home Again

OK. Here's the whole "novel" I wrote back in 2012. Took me 3 months to write in cursive back in 2012, but 5 months to type up in 2020. I'm pretty happy with it.  It's 44,000 words which "barely" qualifies it as a novel I think. Feel free to download and read. Link is also posted on the "Novel" tab above.

the drifter

Seven summers ago, when my son was 10 years old, his favorite thing to do in the world was to go swimming. Pretty much every day that summer, I took him swimming. I myself, would jump in and take a few laps, and get out after 5 minutes.  He'd stay in 2 or 3 hours a day. I spent all the extra time waiting on him writing a "novel". It filled 6 spiral notebooks in cursive. At the end of the summer I put it away in a box thinking "one day I'll find the time to type this up". Well, thank you COVID-19, I've finally found the time. I'm about 85% done typing it up. As I finished typing this chapter, I realized, with just a few additions, it could stand on it's on as a short story.  The rest of the book is posted elsewhere on my blog.
