Books and Knitting – go figure

Thoughts on Writing

When I was a little girl, maybe 5 years old, I wrote a story called “A boy and his dog”.  I knew then that I was going to grow up and write fiction, since I was a girl and I didn’t have a dog, but I could imagine what it was like.  I wish I still had that story, as I cannot remember how it went, but I’m sure that it blew the grown-ups’ minds.  Somewhere, there is a picture of me, reading a story book to my kindergarten class.  I was a precocious reader and writer.  Unfortunately, it really hasn’t come to much.

When I write for others, I do better.  Given an assignment, I come up with stuff that I actually complete.  On my own, I get distracted or lose faith in myself, and I just don’t finish.  I’d like to overcome that.  Sometimes I think I’d like to write with a partner, so that when one of us runs out of gas, the other could jump in there and keep the flame burning.  Not sure where I’d ever find someone like that, though there might be someone.  Hmm.

Anyway, this page might be a place where I’d come to write story ideas.  I’m not sure that anyone will look here, and I’m not sure I’d want them to, but I’m just saying that I might.
