My sister's writing

My sister, _raven03, is an absolutely astounding author! I wish I could share some of her stuff with you all, but I'd have to get her permission first. It's incredible! At 13, she's writing better than I did even 2 years ago! She can't spell well, like Mom, but she has an incredible vocabulary and a superb grasp of human drama. My own forte is adventure/scifi, but hers is first-person contemporary drama. There's this story she has about a character who's name I can't recall (and his {her?} friend Rex), and every time I stumble across bits and pieces of it, I become entranced. She says she's not ready yet to publish, but I think that's just an emotional roadblock... I honestly think she could publish a book now, at 13.

It's so amazing... at 13 I sucked! I had the vision and the passion, but not the skills. Because of this, I'd start stories and never finish them because I knew they sucked. I've only gotten really good in the last couple of years.

Tara, I wish you luck in your writing... someday you'll be ready to publish, and if you do it right, you'll knock the socks off some poor publisher reading your manuscript!

Chaotic Blessings;
