Nick Ripatrazone’s personal essay, “Men at War”

“There are two stories to explain my name. The more light-hearted option is that I was named after my father’s best man, an ‘Uncle’ Nick, who was fully Sicilian, and supposedly fully ‘connected.’ The less enjoyable story, though, is likely the correct one: I was named after Gordon Nicholas Ripatranzone, a 19 year-old United States Army Corporal. . .”

  1. First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t
    mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and
    clear your head prior to writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Cheers!
