First Stories

18 Apr

Do you remember the first story you ever tried writing?

Many of us were probably young kids, maybe young enough to not know how to spell the majority of words in our native languages correctly, when we started to write. Our stories would be a page or two long, projects unfinished and forgotten when our attention spans latched onto something else that was shinier.

But what was the first story that you had consciously tried to finish?

Mine was fanfiction, which most of us probably started out writing. Seriously, who wouldn’t love to write a story for a universe or fandom to be sure that the story never ended? I started off with Legend of Zelda fanfiction. Being an avid gamer and wanting to explore more of that world and of my favorite characters who are not in every installment of that game series prompted me to try my hand at writing my own storyline.

I still have the notebook it was written in. The writing is horrendous. A silver lining regarding how bad it was is that I’ve greatly improved since then!

What about you? What had prompted you to start writing in the first place?

    I think the first thing I finished was a poem for a contest at my school. It was not well received. LOL

      Aww, I’m sorry to hear that! Still, diving into poetry for a first-time writer is awesome! I’m not a poet at all.

    Erm… the first pieces I remember writing were for fictional writing prompts for fourth grade writing tests. As for outside of school… hmm… I think the first story I wrote was about a girl who saved a newborn foal after its mother fell into a frozen lake. I no longer have the original but I have re-written it a couple of times and I think I’ve even posted it on my blog… maybe…
