J. A. Stapleton's picture

I am a young budding writer, still in education, and would appreciate every whisp of feedback that you can give me. Be it scathing or positive, I don't care, I'd rather be faced with the truth than a lie. If what I write isn't to your taste, I'll understand, I just want to know how you perceive my writing as a working progress.

Many thanks,

J. A. Stapleton.

The Second World War: PART 2 - Adelise Gèroux - Paris (1945) #2

When Adelise Gèroux finished packing her life into a single suitcase, she walked out onto her balcony to take in the evening air.

Three times I blink. I’m in my old high school, sitting on a cream couch in the Assembly Hall that bisects block B and block C. Somebody blares Marc...


President Kennedy suffered “no permanent damage” from a bullet wound sustained in an assassination attempt in Dallas yesterday afternoon.

The rhyme works really well

The rhyme works really well and love the image that is conjured up through the imagery. Really lovely.
