So, at home I have this huge, green trapper-keeper looking thing that has countless pages of old stories that I wrote as a teenager and young 20's. I'm considering making a thread where I post some unedited pieces, to preserve them in their original form and share with all of you. Anyway, thinking about that brought up this question. Are you surprised when you read old pieces of work? If so, in what way? Personally, not counting the occasional "Oh my god that was corny of me", I am quite surprised when reading anything I wrote 10+ years ago. I don't remember writing it. AT ALL. I remember working on it, but what I mean is, my initial reaction is - I WROTE THAT? It's sometimes better than what I'm putting out right now. I have grown in a lot of areas, but I swear I had a different voice back then, and I kind of miss it. So what is your reactions to reading through lost, forgotten pieces of work?
