Frankenstein’s Monster

Why are we so ashamed of our own messed up creations. All Frankenstein had to do to avoid all the lost lives, was learn to appreciate his first creation.

There’s a couple memes that I’ve seen floating around that talk about how we cringe when we look back on our own writing. I laugh because I can totally relate. I cringe at my past writings and thoughts and ignorance. I think it’s part of the whole growth process for all of us.

It’s evidence of growth. It’s inspiring to see how far you’ve come. Enjoy the cringe moment as much as you can.

Just don’t get so busy laughing at your past self that it turns to shame. Take time to respect the process you’ve gone through to get where you are today. Don’t let a meme floating around make you feel like you don’t deserve to be the writer you are today. You are the writer you are today because of the days you wrote when you had no idea what you were doing.

Keep Your Head Up

When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
