The Lost Posts
Some of the posts aren't finished, others are too personal, some are just ramblings. This happens.
Not everything a writer writes is for a reader. Writers write to express themselves, to understand themselves, to take control of a situation. What a writer gives to a reader should always be their best work.
For the aspiring writers out there I want you to understand that it is okay to write nonsense. It's okay to write fanfic, and fluff, and nonsense, and even to write pure drek. It is all right to write bad. Writing is a process. You will write poorly before you write well. Don't be ashamed of that. You fell down before you walked. Nothing is ever done flawlessly the first time.
Write. Keep writing. Toss, or burn, or laugh at the bad ones. Tuck them away for another day. Forget they existed. Keep writing. Learn to know your style. Learn what your writing says about you, and choose carefully what you want to share with the world.
And, above all else, keep writing.
