Today is my first time participating in Fadra’s Stream of Consciousness. I did this with 3 girls ages 10-12 who were sleeping over. It was interesting to hear what was in their brains. Believe it or not one little girl wrote a well thought out story about her dog’s birthday.
disclaimer – I wrote this on less than 6 hours of sleep, so I am not responsible if what I wrote make no sense.
Here we Go.
Is sitting here at 7:30 in the morning with the girls who slept over last night with my daughter. They are doing this challenge too. I know weird activity for a a sleepover but, what can I say? I have been writing since I was in about 4th grade. I absolutely love writing and when I was their age my role models were Louisa May Alcott and Laura Ingles Wilder.
Speaking of such did you ever notice that as writers they both had 3 names? Weird huh? I understand Laura Ingalls Wilder, one is her maiden name and the other her married but What is up with Louisa May Alcott?
As I got older and had already read every thing wirtten by them, I have also read the Lost writings of theirs, I have read other writers take on them too, Inspired Stories so to speak. What is it about two authors from the 19th century that still capture readers imaginations? I not only loved their writtings I wanted to BE them as a little girl.
