writing about writing addendum

if you haven't read the post "writing about writing" then do that before reading this one.

this afternoon i decided to look around the attic to see if i could find my file box that i kept stuff in that i had written and sure enough there was the short story i thought i had lost. i had to stand there in the attic and reread the whole thing.

i suppose i have written better since, but when you think something you've written is lost is becomes larger than life, pulitzer prize winning work.

i also discovered the portfolio of my final assignment for my 12th grade creative writing class. i was afraid to even get that one out of the box!

and since i was asked... the excerpt in the last post is from book 2 (remember i haven't finished book 1 yet) about a warrior woman that becomes a queen. i did say i loved to write fantasy.

God's peace y'all

I bet that was fun prowling around the attic, and finding that stuff. I plan to do the same the next time I visit my parents.

And your excerpt would fit in the fantasy genre.

Oh, I've had that happen to me, too! And then I find it and mutter, "What was I *thinking*?" Looks like Jacklyn agrees it's great, though, and I'm glad you found it!
