One day I was walking through the forest and I noticed that my shoe was untied. I bent down to tie my shoe. I came back up and was a 12 foot bear standing in front of me. I didn't know what to do but stand there and look at it. I panic. So the only thing I could of at the moment was running. And the only way I be able to beat the bear in running is I was Maurice Green. I started running. I could here the cracking of limbs on the ground behind me. The bear was running at an enoumous speed. I could almost feel the bear breathing on the back of my neck. I just so happen to see a river running through the forest. I knew the only way I could get away from the bear is to jump in the river and swim with the current. I was slowly draining of my energy from running so far. I couldn't possibly run anymore. I jumped with all my might I felt the coled water run all over me. The bear jumped in after me. But it couldn't handle the current of the water, so it swam back to the bank. I looked forward and I knew there was no way I could get back to the bank of the river. I didn't know what to do at the moment. I had a problem getting away from the bear, now I have a even bigger one. Facing the river. There was dangerous rocks eveywhere, sharp rocks that is. I tried to dodge them the best I could. The water was running fast. My head kept on dropping in and out of the water. Right now I was starting to get really scared. No way to get to the bank. There was no way I could swim against the current of the river.
After 5 minutes down stream, the eas was getting a little warmer. or either I was getting hypothermia. But I realized it couldn't be hypothermia, the water was really getting warmer. I looked up, the sun was shining on the river. The river was slowing down now. I made an attempt to get back to the bank of the river. I swam as hard as I could. After a couple of minutes I it to the bank. I pulled myself up on to the bank of the river. I was now in a whole other part of the forest. I must;ve floated down the river for at least a mile or two. I stayed in the sun for an hour so I could get dried off.
I knew I was of the trail. So the only to go now was into the forest. There was pine tree's everywhere, redwoords, and other types of trees I didn't know of. So I was basically screwed. The nearest forest ranger park was probably 50 miles from here. I knew I couldn't make it there. No water, besides the river's water. Then I decided it would be wise to walk along the river side. God knows how long it will take me to make it back. I walked for minutes, hours, days. I rested at night. Right now I look liked I havn't taken a bath in 6 months. I stopped every now and then , for about 5 minutes. I would look around seeinf if there was anykind of trails or signs of life any where. I didn't see anything. So I just kept on walking. While I was resting at night I thougt about how nice it would be to be sitting at home with my kids and wife. I came out here as a volunter. So it was a matter of choice of me coming out here. I wish I hadn't came now. I was with another team and I wander off to another part of the forest. I told them where I was going, but I didn't know I was going to be attack by a 12 foot grizzly bear. Jump in the water to get away from the bear. It had been ten days since that little incident had happend. The only thing that made me comfortable was thinking about home. It was cold out here at night. The only thing that kept me warm was having to huddle up into a little ball. I didn't fall asleep for another hour or so. I dreamed that I was in another world. I didn't have a clue where I was at. The only thing I saw was a face. I have seen that face somewhere before. The person said, "I would make it through", then I woke up. I didn't know what the dream meant. But I do know that I did actually sleep that night. The next morning was the same. I got up dustes myself off. SO much I was wishing I could've woke up in my bed at home. My stomach was on empty. I havn't had anything to eat for eleven days now. I started hearing a sound off in the distance. It sounded like a helicopter. It was a helicopter!!! I don't know if it will see me though, but I've got to try. I ran in the opening, waving my hands everywhere. I was yelling at the top of my lungs. The helicopter flew over me. Then it turned around coming back and stopped in mid air. It was coming down. "Thank God!!!, I said out load. He was lowering the cable from the copter. I grabbed it.

Oh my God....
I'm not going to even rate this...
There are numerous spelling and gramatical errors all over the story (you DO own a computer, right ?), no pace, no form, no purpose.
OH ! You notice how I didn't say that there wasn't any plot ? It's because there IS one :

The great Stephen King wrote this story about a year ago and called it "The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon". THAT was a masterpiece. THIS....God only knows....

Why don't you try to write something original, and not TRY to re-create and butcher already published material. That's what being a writer is about. Original works.
