recently amusing herself (and us) by looking through some of her oldest manuscripts, we, the Merry Sisters of Fate, have decided to use our common prompt week to celebrate something very, very special.
HOW MUCH OUR WRITING USED TO SUCK
Check us out! Brenna looking all alien and gorgeous, Maggie with that awesome 16 year old angst and totally geeky bagpipes, and me doing what I do best: wearing weird clothes (before a drama performance of Midsummer Night’s Dream. I was Helena).
Writing is a learning process. Every time you write you get better… which means if you’re doing it right, you’re always improving. I don’t think any of us can be considered master’s of writing, but we’ve definitely moved into the journeyman phase of our careers. To keep us humble (ok, to keep Maggie and I humble) we’re going to reveal stories or novel-excerpts that we wrote when we were in high school (or at least that age, for those of us who were home-schooled*), at the very beginnings of our apprenticeships.
Monday, Brenna will post, Wednesday me, and Friday Maggie, as is usual. Feel free to make fun of us, and take heart that we really worked hard to get where we are now. 😀
And the following week, (Nov. 16-20) we’ll be taking off completely in order to work on a Sekrit Projekt*** as well as various NaNo novels and editing and marketing and pr and raking our back yards (that might just be me).
*That would be both of my fellow sisters. No wonder they’re so weird.**
** I’m totally kidding. We all know Brenna’s weird because she’s a changeling and is still trying to figure out how to pretend she’s human.
*** No I’m not going to tell you.
