S: Giovanni Boccaccio By Jalen Marlowe
FC: My life Giovanni Boccaccio By:Jalen Marlowe
1: My name is Giovanni Boccaccio, I provided many of the Renaissance writing that gave inspiration to many well known writers like William Shakespeare.
2: In my early ages I was abandoned by my father. He said I was illegitimate. Meaning I wasn't his son did want to claim me. I moved to Florence to earn my education there I met Giovanni De Strada.
3: I was left on my one until the age of nine when Giovanni De Strada took me in and taught me how to write. To afford writing utensils I earned a job being a banker. I didn't like the job but I need to fulfill my passion for writing.
4: While still developing my writing skills I met one of the most important people that gave me my inspiration that man was Francesco Petrarch. A well known man in the Italian Renaissance
6: I never married even though I had females I was in "love" with, for example Maria De Conti D'aquino. I would have to say that was my fairest lady of them all I had three children with her, though I never married. My children were Jimmy, Tina, Brittney.
7: Many people said I was very sarcastic when I wrote, I don't believe so but every one is a critic no matter how well people will praise you for your work. My pieces like The Decameron, are studied today by many people all over the world. My writing depicted what was going on around me during my rime. By now 21st century writers are trying to do the same as I and some many did in our day but they just can't because of all the critics that think that they know what is write but they're not being opened minded when it comes to writing. I gave inspiration to some of the greatest writers of all time but still you have someone out there that will critique one of William Shakespeare's works and something is wrong with it. What we're writing about is what happened in our time period.
8: Writing The Decameron was one of my greatest accomplishments I never wrote anything up to that caliber ever again.
9: One of my biggest failures were being a banker. It was one of the hardest jobs in the whole wide world ! It was easier said than done because everybody wants extra money on the side when they don't have it.
10: In my final years I met my children now fully grown and they pursued their own careers. I have never been so proud of them. Jamal is a big time singer. Jimmy has made his own food chain called Jimmy Dean Breakfast Foods. Brittney is a doctor working at the biggest hospital in Italy.
12: Before I published my book I moved to Paris, France to settle down and live a "normal" life without all the publicity of a writer. I was like the Bon Jovi of writing.
13: Before I wanted to end my writing career I had to think of something, "Did I really want to settle down with somebody and live a "boring" life without writing. I mean my life was based on writing.
14: I have made a huge discovery.............I'm obese! I know you all that are reading this book are like"That isn't good" But back in my day being obese was something to be proud of. Being obese meant that you're a very wealthy person and you feast like a king almost everyday.
15: Today I met one of my old friends Francesco Petrarch. He gave me my inspiration to write without him I would nothing. He not only taught me how to write but to express myself like I am to you.right now. He provide a pathway into descriptive writing.
16: I think I'm in love! This time I might settle down but keep my writing career going. Today at the market I met a girl that is everything I wrote about when I was writing to my "love". This might be the one guys she really might be the one. I didn't get her name so for now I will call her the Shadow Woman.
17: Today I met my love again, her name is Sophia. Oh how I love that name. I will plan to get her out on a date by the next fortnight. I can't think of how my life would be complete without this womanI truly do love her.
18: I am starting to feel very ill for the last couple of weeks. Its harder for me to breathe and do my daily activities without losing my breath. Maybe its the rebirth of the plague or I ate some bad veal. Sophia is doing her best to keep me well but it seems like I am getting more ill by the hour.
19: I died today at 2:30 of what they call today a heart attack. I hope that me children will keep the Boccaccio name going as far as possible. I have lived a very good life, now to think of it I really don't have any regrets because I went with my gut instinct. I will be remembered throughout history as one of the first Renaissance men that changed writing forever.
