ramblings of a bad writer

Ok, so I got bored at work one day and came up with an idea for a possible book that I knew I would never get around to writing. I wrote an introduction; however, that's as far as it has gone.
Due to recent developments, I don't think I will ever start; therefore, finish it. But here is the introduction. (And please, don't be too hard on my writing abilities, or lack there of).

Whoever disagrees with the fact that everything happens for a reason is in denial. It's difficult to explain how else a trip like ours could have worked out so perfectly. It is the only way in which to explain how in having a goal and randomly picking up a flyer could have changed my life.
Oddly enough though, it was indeed a flyer that threw off everything I knew and gave me more than I could have ever hoped for. I like to think that God had a hand in it. That he orchestrated the entire plan and what started out as a far fetched dream miraculously turned into the best trip I have ever taken as well as giving me some of the best friends I could have ever known.
How it happened, I still have yet to figure out, but that's not what matters. What matters most is that it did happen. Somehow a bunch of former outcasts all wound up on a plan to Europe together and created a lasting bond. The specifics may be a little vague, but it's the big picture that counts the most.
Somehow seven (?) people met and wormed their way into each other's hearts creating a group of friends from such different; yet, similar characteristics.
So here is the story of how the prom queen, the head cheerleader, the loner, the former fat kid, the star runner, the brainiac and the class clown all met and platonically (for some) fell in love and became the cornerstones in each other's lives.
It's nothing short of a miracle.



Oy, in rereading it, I can't believe I'm posting it...but here goes. We all need some laughs, eh?

I thought it was great! Yes, the writing needs a little tweaking (but only here and there), but thats what editing is for. The idea captured my attention and I wanted to read more! Possibly cuz I want to be one of those people who went on the greatest trip of my lifetime! haha I think you should continue this story. Perhaps make it like a blog post. Chapter by chapter post it til a story emerges. I've also attempted writing. Its flippin hard! I now see why novelists ONLY write. Cuz its time consuming and terribly difficult. haha Seriously, I want to read more. Keep it coming!
