  1. Defo.
    To be able to edit an old story is like a badge on the writers jacket. A decade ago I couldnt do it, like there was some brain block. I hated revisiting anything. Now I dont mind at all, although I would generally be happier writing new stuff.

    1. I used to put off revising my work, especially after a long break, but someone once told me a time and distance from your work is a good thing. Three hours in, it’s starting to get hard to feel that way…

  2. It’s amazing, isn’t it–how you grow as a writer? I’ve decided to think of it as progress. That older piece represented the best writing I could put forth at the time. Now it’s better. That’s got to be a good thing. 🙂
