Going back in time…

Going back in time…

I’ve been doing some sorting out of old papers recently, and came across a folder with pieces I wrote when I was at primary school! Mr N, who has just discovered how fun writing can be, has had a wonderful time reading pieces I wrote when I was his age.

Some of the story ideas are interesting and I wonder if they could be edited to be something worth reading now. Then again, some of the stories need to be tossed out completely, I’m only keeping them for nostalgia value.

As well as short stories, I also have a couple of plays that I’ve written. These also have potential as chapter books, or even a novel!

I wonder if I’m the only one who has done this – revisited ideas from over 20 years ago. Is it just me?

Revisiting some of these ideas may be the start of my 12×12 challenge for next year, or even the Chapter Book Challenge, you never know what may happen… watch this space.

  1. I’m sure I’ve tossed away my writing attempts of 20 years ago — but I certainly revisit pages written (and abandoned) two or three or five years ago.

    • I was surprised to find I still had those really old pieces… I thought they had been thrown away years ago! I’m glad it’s not just me who revisits really old work.
