I love this quote. A common question for writers seems to be “how” are they “good?” One, “good” is a matter of interpretation. Two, they write. Over and over.
but what happens is you keep writing stuff and you finish it and you’re high off the finish and then you go “it’s crap” and other people are like “NOOO IT’S SO NUANCED AND THE CHARACTERS GROW AND THE SETTING IS SO INTERESTING AND THIS AND THAT” and you’re just like “did we read the same book” because YOU WILL ALWAYS SEE THE FLAWS IN YOUR CREATION and that’s okay you just have to keep going anyway and incorporate the good things other authors do into your own writing
