Have you ever read what you have written and said to yourself, “man did I really write this crap?”
I just finished about 6 hours of writing and decided to read a few chapters in the middle of my book, just to get a better idea of how to complete the ending. Man was I disappointed, I couldn’t believe how bad some of it was… how disheartening.
Have you ever had this happen to you?
The bad part is I don’t know if I can fix it. It kind of left me feeling lost or overwhelmed. I hope once I am 100% complete, I can go back and read it from cover to cover and feel better about it than I do now.
I just have this overwhelming feeling I need to start from scratch. 81k words of poorly written work can do that to you. I just feel it would be easier to write it better from word one, than trying to fix that mess.
I just don’t think I can do it all over again. The rush of nearly completing my first draft that I was feeling just hours before has vanished… wow I hope I feel better in the morning—I hope that I can forget this and move on—I just hope.
Thx for any comment you might leave—even though I have been here before… any advice helps heal the wounds of feeling inept.
