I told my husband that he should write about his experiences when he was still in active duty. I think that a book about his lifew wuld be a good read for our kids and the next genertation. He said that he doesn't have the skill to write but I know that he has it because he used to send me tons of well-composed love letters when were still miles apart. I think the problem is not due to lack of skills or passion but the fact that he is a perfectionist. When he writes something, it gets so long and then when he proofreads it, he will delete a lot of it. He is really good in finding errors or mistakes when he reads or compose an article.
It would be really nice though if he can write a story about his journey as a sailor. I think that promptessay.com can help him with this. All he need is time and motivation. So you see, my husband is a talker, he used to give lessons to junior guys with some training when he was still in the ship. He would rather talk his ideas than sit and write it. That is why him and I are a very good match because he talks and I listen.
