"I'm telling you stories. Trust me." - Winterson

Haven't I met you somewhere before?

So as some of you may know, I'm writing a new book, and now that I'm through being creeped out by my mc, I'm actually quite enjoying it.  But I started to write a scene and was thinking I've written this before...   It's a situation where one character is teaching another techniques for essentially blocking their thoughts.  I looked back and found the flash I wrote *way* back when I first started writing flash and the scene was almost perfect.  The only thing is, point of view is from the teacher, whereas my current project requires the scene to be written in the student's pov.  Ok np, it'd still give me some ideas (I've deemed it's not plagerism when you steal from your own writing!  The copyright owner gave me permission :)

But what really gave me the shivers -- the name of the student in the first story is an alternate spelling of the name of the student in this story...   I wrote it in 2009 and don't think I've looked at it since.  It's not a name I use often.  Has that character really been floating around in my head since then?  I *really* didn't like her the first time around - she was too wimpy.  This one I still don't like, although she's more powerful than the first version.  In both stories the character is in a secondary but important role.

Just sort of amused me :)  Now to go out and play in the sun :)
