I cannot go back through my story without changing wording, adding dialogue, or SOMETHING!  It's hard to read through what I've written for the sake of entertainment because there is always something I want to change!  Does anyone else feel this way and how do you cope?

Hi ya runnin,

I feel this way all the time.  When I go back and read something I have posted I wince any time I see something I think should have been different or god forbid I see typos! *shudders*

However my take on it is to leave what I posted as is and learn from it for the next attempt.  I see a world of difference between my first story ever posted and the more recent ones.  I think it's all part of the learning experience.  So I just chuckle at the things i would change and keep it in mind for the next story.

And as long as most feedback is positive I figure I did something okay.  We're always our own harshest critics.

Hope that little bit of wisdom helps you out.  I'll send you a bill for the time!   Wink
