Part of the 30 days of writing challenge
Day 1 - Beginning
So, where to begin? I’m normally very good at telling stories; I am the storyteller after all. I’m on DVD and everything. But this isn’t a story, this is meant to be a factual, non-biased autobiography of my life. And that’s where the challenge lies because I’ve been telling stories for so long now that I’m not entirely sure which ones are true myself. Like that time I was sick in Fidel Castro’s house, I’m still not sure if that was real or just a nightmare I had.
Should I start in a boring normal way and tell you about when I was born and who my parents were, but why on earth would I want to begin with that. Do I begin when I first got started in this whole consulting criminal business? No, that’s not really all that interesting either. Being a crime lord is definitely not as interesting as they portray it in the movies. My first job was a bit of tax fraud back in the 80s. See, I told you it was boring. I could explain in more detail but you’d probably just stare at me vacantly like a dead fish.
The first time I killed someone? Well, you probably already know that part. And besides it wasn’t the killing that was the interesting bit but what happened afterwards. That was the first time I became aware of Sherlock Holmes’ existence and that dear reader is the true beginning. That was when my life really started and given purpose. It was the beginning of the game.
