It can be tough to be a writer sometimes. For many of us, we face a daily battle with ourselves to try and keep going. Everything from rejection, procrastination to cringing as we read over our work can mean that we lose confidence as a writer, and for some, this means we eventually stop writing altogether.
I have realized that writing is not easy for anyone, though I sometimes have trouble telling that to myself. I try not to judge, but sometimes I fell I won't be as good as anyone I have read. But then I try to tell myself I'm doing good for what I am doing. Everyone is different. Most of all, I tryout have fun doing it. That's what should matter most to anyone.
I didn't view the first draft of my memoir as bad, just as a work in progress that needed more work. I think this is one way of seeing your fist draft, much better than seeing it as bad. I bet many of you would agree with this statement.
I believe what is said here. It's what you make of it.
