There is nothing so terrible for my self-esteem as reading fiction I'm in the middle of writing.

@kl ❤️ And yet we pour our passions onto those virtual plain white sheets like a teenager.

@tbn97 one of my problems is that, even though I’ve been writing since I was a teenager and I know better, somewhere subconsciously I expect first drafts to be good, and no one’s first drafts are ever good. My first instinct is usually “this is bad and I’m a bad person for writing it” lol

@kl indeed. We are our own worst critics. Iteration is key, and annoying. 😖❤️
