Rereading

Have you ever reread something you wrote and asked yourself, "How in the world did I ever find it in me to write that?"

God, if I could write a novel like that...

I have to write a novel like that.

PS: Happy Birthday, Crys! *Hugs!*

Current Mood: awed

Oh yes, been there...

It was a tahoo-groups based roleplay based around lord of the rings, only set after the films. I can say that that was quite easily the best stuff i've ever written, some of my jp's there with suse before we 'got together'.

It all went to pot when she moved in :)

Re: Oh yes, been there...

Suse--You did that to Legolas? And hordes of fan-girls didn't murder you while you slept? I'm impressed! (g)

Thank you

*Hugs* :-D

Every so often, although normally it is individual sentences, etc.; not something quite so long as a novel (LOL!). Not sure I have that kind of staying power.

Actually, for me, it is always things I wrote on a deadline for others -- partly because that built in structure makes me very disciplined, and for me, writing is certainly about inspiration and talent, but mostly, it is about very hard work, grit and determination. Those sentences that I polished hour after hour, not the ones that came to me in a burst of "brilliance" are the ones I am most happy about later.

Oh, yes!

Every so often I'll realize that I've written something that I could not have come up with if I'd simply been thinking about it. I love those times of tapping into deeper wisdom, or the mythic level of consciousness.

I loved the writing you linked, by the way!

... yeah.

... [blink] Sorry, did you want specifics? There are SO many examples I could give. ... all old.
