The Ones That Got Away
Guest Post by Author Alyssa Rose Ivy
Most authors have them. They stay hidden in drawers or in long forgotten computer files. I’m talking about the stories and books that have never been finished or weren’t deemed good enough to see the light of day. I have my fair share of them—mostly short stories or early chapters of books I abandoned. I have many reasons for the abandonment, sometimes I just couldn’t get into the story, or it seemed too much like something else I had written, other times they were great but I wanted to focus on a different story.
