Finding Alaska

Finding Alaska

A Story by Shy Joe

Story in the works.


"One step at a time.  It's how you get there.  Under any other circumstances, this would be the journey of a life time.  Now it's my last one.  My last smile." - Paul Little


        Winds blow through the musical symphony of everyone’s soul. Summer is such a lovely state.  Tax free, except for the sweat beads on your body.  Lazy or busy, happiness can be found among every scene.  Not as colorful as fall, and not as lively as spring, but it’s a painted canvas of freedom.  Clouded canopies sure do relax the sun’s rays.  Shaded tree linings release the inner child like behavior of hanging from the limbs of realities retreat.  


Is there anything better?


        Well, at twelve years old that sure was my escape.  They call me Paul Little, but I dream as high as Everest.  Living in an imagination that climbs the peaks and explores the valleys.

Author's Note

Shy Joe
I don't write stories often. I'm going to try and stretch this out to at least several chapters. You will see this slowly grow as I work on it. It's not going to be all that good, but I want to do it.

Plot: I slowly build up Paul Littles childhood dealing with cancer until he is terminal at the age of 19. He decides to make his dreams come true and travel the west coast from the bottom of California all the way up to Alaska to die along the way.

Yep it's going to be a tear jerker. I will do my best to throw some comedy in there as well. I am open to any and ALL opinions no matter how harsh they maybe. I take criticism very well.
