The Private Constitution of Nobody Special


This is totally different in style to Cow Green. As yet it is incomplete and I'm only posting the first chapter to see what people think. It was started back in 1994, as with many things on this site, if there is good feedback it may just give me the incentive to pull out the notes and finish it off. 
If you fancy a fun hour then download this excerpt. 
The story is based around Eddie Mead. All his life he has been convinced he was somebody special but now he has to deal with the fact that he has discovered he is just the same as everyone else.

Opening Lines:
I awoke on that first morning at just after eight.  Decisiveness oozed through my veins like dog-shit through sandals.  Within two minutes of swinging out of bed I had made three earth-shattering decisions.
One: to kill myself.
Two: to put down in writing my life so far as a warning to others.
Three: to change to skimmed milk.


I hope you enjoy it.....
