Hello Everyone! After Sunday's poll, I have decided to begin the process of creating my first written work Desert Rat. I have created this thread so that when I post an excerpt, ask a question, need some help, or ask for some input, it'll all be here. I will be giving you guys updates as to where I'm at in the process and will try to give you a few paragraphs and sneak peek's every once in a while. Feel free to give your advice, and any requests on here! I have somewhat tweaked the original story line for this concept because of Opana. Opana's post about his professor at Purdue actually sounded like a good way to start the story out, a college history class in the late 60's with retired RAAF pilot Nicky Avery as the professor (Thanks Opana ). The Story will be told in 3rd person/ 1st person. Here is a quick recap of the main story: Purdue History Professor Nicky Avery, a former RAAF pilot, tells the tale of survival during the battle of El Alamein after he was shot down in his P-40 Kittyhawk behind enemy lines. I will give further details as I get more info, and workout the plot. Thank you all for your support!
