Week 7 Ligocki
It took me all weekend and most of my Monday night, but I have a first draft completed! It feels so great to have all of the amazing stories Myles has shared with me together.
The biggest thing I struggled with was figuring out which darlings to kill. He shared so many great stories, especially about fellow veterans in his unit that showed how much they bonded throughout the years.
Luckily I was able to keep one story of a good friend of his, but that one didn’t have a happy ending as his friend lost his life.
Maybe that’s what I could write about for my “Story behind the story;” how being a veteran creates this instant connection, making you not just fellow soldiers but family.
