So I've been a reader for as long as I can remember. I always loved reading and I always will, but I feel like I've reached the peak of reading, where now I want to write something of my own.
So I've been trying to write something for years now, but I never gone past ideas, little snippets or short stories. (That's on me, cause you know, no planning, I get easily distracted, etc.)
What I wanna talk about is the feeling I get when I do write something. It feels like I'm doing everything wrong, there is just this gnawing in my brain screaming "No!". It makes feel like everything I write is shit, like there is a level I haven't reached and its a frustrating feeling. I guess I want to know what it is...
Is it that i'm comparing what I write to too high a standard?
Is it because I feel I haven't captured what a envisioned?
Maybe its because I've yet to find my voice as a writer?
Or is it because a expect to much out of a first draft
I'm not really looking for answers, more like I felt the need to rant a bit and maybe see if anyone is getting what I'm saying and experiencing the same thing.
