After all this hard work, it was all for nothing!
For once, my words were all in line.
Everything made complete sense.
This story was going to be epic!
I had so many hopes for it.
It was held in my humble high esteem.
But everything came crashing down when I realized...
The story wasn't saved.
It's somewhere in the abyss.
All that work!
I really don't want to start from scratch.
What's the point.
It won't be the same.
It could be worse than the original.
Maybe, just maybe, this new draft will flow better.
It could be the one that knocks all of my other stories out the window.
It could put me on the map.
The old story may have been a flop.
People could have hated it.
At the end of the day.
It doesn't matter what people think.
Whether they hate my stories.
Or love them.
They're my writings.
They all mean something to me.
I'm very passionate about writing.
It soothes my soul.
Feeds my imagination.
And balances my mind.
So, writing the same thing over again.
And writing something new.....
Brings me joy.
I may be upset about writing something all over again.
But that's what being a writer is all about.
You write something amazing.
And then you hate it and trash it to start over again.
Sometimes, you lose a lot of hard work.
And you learn that that loss may have saved you.
You never stop learning as a writer.
Or at least, you shouldn't.
Writing can teach you a lot about yourself.
It has definitely done that for me.
As long as all the faculties of my mind are in order.
I will never stop learning.
And I will never stop writing.
