Me driving

This is me in the driver’s seat of a Hum-v in combat. You can see that I am wearing a neck protector, scissors, medical pocket, and protective eyewear.

Writing excerise: The Frozen Attack

Posted in Uncategorized, Writings by Larry on June 3, 2008

This is a writing exercise that I did today. I just wrote a random scene to get words on the page.

May 2, 2007

Piss, it was piss that tickled down his leg. Jordan knew that feeling even though it had been years since he felt it. Goons looking for their payment came to the pub back then, just like now. Only now one man stood facing his father from across the bar. Jordan hadn’t remembered ever seeing a man that big and mean looking. He stood easily a good few inches taller than anyone he’d ever seen, and if that wasn’t intimidating enough the scar drawn across his right face sealed the deal. (more…)
