Snippet Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by my fabulous friend Samantha from Reed’s Reads and Reviews. It works like this;
- You share a snippet of your current work in progress or whatever else you are working on. A scene, dialogue, a whole chapter, a poem – anything goes
- Link your Snippet Sunday back at Samantha’s, and we can watch the world burn in our amazingness together
- Ta da! Snippet Sunday complete
Last week I talked about the short story I’m working on. This week, I thought I’d move away from that, and share some of my old, cringy writing, so we can all laugh at me together.
This quote comes from one of my fanfiction stories. Yes, I wrote it. No, I will NEVER share it on this blog. This was a dark moment in my life, and I’m showing you only the bits that don’t make me want to cry at how lame I was.
(side not, am almost crying going through the website. 12 year old me, please stop).
My first quote is actually not bad. It’s from a story about Remus telling his friends about being a werewolf, and this is the very first line.
“After I got bitten, Mum told me not to trust anyone. Everyone, including my little brother, is my enemy.”
And the second one is SO BAD I AM HONESTLY SO ASHAMED. How did I ever think this was good writing?
Half the village is talking about me. ‘My hairs bright red and I’ve got a temper to match’
I don’t have a temper! Well not really, I’m only a little abrasive on Monday, and, well, Tuesday too. And on Wednesday I was in a pretty foul mood. And Thursday was my bad day when that old lady called me fat and I hit her. And on Fridays I work so I’m in a bad mood then. But two days out of the seven I’m just a delightful person…Except for this weekend. . .
So, there’s my post for this week… I’m regretting this instantly… Share your terrible writing with me, please! Make me feel better!
