Where did my sister learn those words??

Well, to explain the title a bit here, once and awhile I do editing work for friends and family, mostly novels or short stories. Mainly of the Fantasy genre as I have so much experience in it (12 years and counting)

So it’s no surprise when my dear sweet big sister, whom writes mainly children and adolescent novels, sends me a couple of files and requests I edit them.

My first thought is, “Hey if it’s anything like the Fantasy novel of hers I’ve edited, bring it on!”

Imagine my surprise when I open the file and…. whoa. I didn’t know she knew this kind of stuff (never mind she has children, regardless, she’s my big sister! That’s like assuming your parents ever had sex. A ridiculous notion indeed.)

And it didn’t help a bit that I had just finished editing my own story of horror/fantasy genre. It was a shocking gap to jump to say the least.

It is difficult to come to grips with the fact that your sister, who is closer to a decade older than you than she is under, is a full grown woman, with womanly sexual desires as anyone else, and unlike some- knows how to put it on paper.

Wasn’t it just yesterday I was following her around, bugging her and teasing her about all her teenage crushes? I guess I failed to acknowledge she grew up. I’m still working on acknowledging that I have, too.

Anyway, to put it simply, I am enjoying it, I am enjoying editing it, and I’m just glad she didn’t base her main male character off of my brother-in-law (that I’m aware of, yikes).
