Early Writings Tag


It's been quite a long time since I have taken part in any tags so when I was tagged for this one I took it up right away!

Have you ever looked back at what you wrote when you were a kid? Or maybe even when you first started to blog about? You probably started off with one set of theme but over time how you write and what you write has evolved making you an even better writer than your previous self.

It's true for me. When I first started out blogging all the way back in 2014, the whole theme of my blog was writing short stories and poems. But as I continued blogging over the years I kind of stopped with the short stories part.

This tag is based on this very theme! Talking about your initial writing pieces and what you gained or learned from it!

Rules

  • Thank the person who tagged you.
  • Copy/paste and answer the following questions:
1) What horrendous book did you write as a child?
2) What did you learn from it?
  • Talk about as many books/writing projects as you like!
  • Tag 5 other bloggers

..........

To be honest, I didn't write a lot when I was a kid. The only thing I ever remember writing was one small short story. But I will share the writing pieces that I did write for my blog.

I was tagged by Eve from Edge of Night. She's got a natural flair for writing poems and they are one of the best that I have ever read! Do check her blog out!

1) What horrendous book did you write as a child?

None. I know, for someone who says they love to write yet they never tried their hand at writing a book while a child? Honestly, the writing bug hit me while I was late in my teens and I never stopped since then although I was an avid reader while I was a kid. 

#1- The Lost Briefcase

This was a one and half page story and my attempt at writing a Mystery. I remember going thorugh it a few weeks back itself and cringing at almost everything about it. The story was about a man who was at the airport who lost his briefcase while a private detective who was coincidentally there at the same time helped retrieving it.

What I learned?
- I'm not such a good mystery writer, but hey! I tried okay?
-When you show the story to your mum and dad they will happily ask everyone in the family to read it.

#2- 5 O' Clock

This was the very first short story that I wrote and shared on my first blog 'A Sea Change'. This story was about a woman who after the demise of her husband worries about how she'll be able to live her life and take care of her child and herself, but her worried all disappear the moment she sees the smiling face of her son getting down the school bus.

What I learned?
-I was actually very proud of this story. 
-You can find inspiration all around you, whether that's in people or things.

#3-Glad it Happened

This one story was about a girl who overly drinks one night and ends up feeling nauseous the entire night but learns her lesson after the end of it.

What I learned?
- I wrote this story in quite a haste so I felt like I could have done a better job at it.

Well then! There you go!
I won't be nominating anyone further but you're free to do the tag if you find it interesting!

This was actually really nice. I got to go back and read all my old posts from my previous blog!

...........

I mentioned this in my previous post, I started an Instagram page to share my writings! If you guys are interested then you can go ahead and give me a follow there and share my work! It would be much appreciated ♥
Also, I decided that I'd post my work there here but I'll only be posting twice a week- every Tuesday & Saturday to be more precise even though I might regularly update my account there. So for those of you that don't have instagram, you guys can still be updated!

You can check out my last post here.

  2. Aw, thank you for the sweet shout out! That's very kind of you. <3

    It's a lot more common than I thought to not have written much during one's childhood. Like my own tag said, I wrote some, but very, very little and in random spurts. When it comes to catching the writing bug in our late teen years, you and I have that in common! lol.

    Ahaha, I love that mystery story attempt. I'm still working on creating actual mysteries worth solving, but it's a super fun genre to write in, I think.

    5 O' Clock is such a sweet one! I don't think I ever saw it. Is it still around anywhere?

    Yay! I'm glad you'll be updating your blog with your writings, too. <3 I would've missed them.

    1. Yay! I'm not the only who started out writing late but fell in love, haha!

      5 O' clock is not on the internet anymore, it went away when I deleted my old blog and started this one.

      Thank you so much for this tag, can't wait to read more from you ♥
