Then I re-read some of my stuff and wanted to cry. There are days I really hope nobody read my work. This is one of them.
Sometimes I go back and look at old work and go - EGADS.
But - then I read something I wrote and see that it's the beginning of something. I believe that someday, my writing will mature.
In the mean time, here's a list of people who like my growing pains:
October 15th - "Reclaimed: Original" Reclaimed (3rd place Journey Through The Genres Contest 2011) won the Ocean Magazine Fall 2013 Contest.
October 2013 - Tied for 7th place in the Poetry Superhighway Washed (one of 12 poems I submitted, so I had 11 losers there too hehe).
