Day 80

How do you feel about your old works?

And bonus homework: say something nice about past-writer-you.

Sometimes reading my old works can be a little cringy, whether it be sentence structure, word choice or simply content. Most of what I wrote in high school was so angsty and aggravated. All these big emotions that I was trying to process and now that I’m older, I look back on those and think how extreme I could be. But also how beautiful it is to see those feelings documented in such a raw form. Past-writer me was honest and gritty and I have a lot of respect for how she took things that were painful and was able to express them in a healthy way. I wrote about things I cared about and it showed underneath all those fragmented sentences.
