You might be an author if…

You’ve ever written stories that are so bad, you’d NEVER show them to anyone … but you can’t throw them away because they’re still your babies.

    Just went through a file of many such writings…thought I’d toss them, but just put them all back!

      Lol, Karen. Our stories really can feel like our babies. No matter how much they embarrass us or piss us off, we just can’t get rid of them 🙂 Thanks for contributing!

    I have some old ones I can’t find. And that’s upsetting to me.

    • Traci Sanders

      Yeah, me too, Kim. I had some poems I wrote in middle and high school that were published and I can’t find them, nor my parents 🙁 I’d love to share them with my kids. I remember some of the lines, but not all.

    I have a 100,000 word manuscript holding the laundry room door open. At least it is useful for something.
