"Inspiration does not come to the lazy. It only comes to those who call it." - P. I. Tchaikovsky

T

Introduction: The following Journal entries belong to James Tinwool of the 24th Royal Infantry, who disappeared the day before the Battle of the Somme in 1916. The journal was discovered months after the battle, but James himself was never found during the war. The dates in the journal correspond to before, during and after the battle, however, the journal states that he was nowhere near the battlefield. Some scholars believe that the dates between June 30th to September 5th is pure fantasy that he wrote to cope with his shell shock. James Tinwool himself, who was found years after he reappeared back in England, up to his death in 1948 always made the statement: “Everything that I've written in that journal is true. All of it.” We leave this up to the reader as well as the listener to judge on the authenticity of this story.

Good chapter, although there are a few grammar mistakes and a bit is rushed

5652585 I know, I'm just going though the chapters today to try to correct some of them as best as I can. For I'm doing this for a good reason, someone has offered to do a reading on YouTube soon.

There is mentioning of blood, WWI trench warfare and some descriptions of a war hospital.

That was one well drawn picture

Rip that uniform

It was a tombstone lying on its side. A tombstone that read: “Israel Fredric Baker. May 4, 1897 – Dec 25, 1915.”

Plot convenience? I think so!

That was an intersesting read. Despite the Rogue Angles of Satin level autocowrecks, this author did their research.
