When It Keeps Getting Better

Question for the day:

What does it mean when your critique partners say your latest bit is your best writing yet?

A compliment, for sure, but it leaves me wondering just how godawful everything that came before surely must be.

Does anyone else have this problem accepting praise?

Nah - just take it that it means you are getting better.

Imagine if they had said something like it needs a lot of work or it sucks!! LOL

THEY LIKE IT!! That is what matters right!???

Thank them and move forward! :)

Yes, I do and it sucks. To be like that, it sucks. Not your writing. Your writing doesn't suck. I was talking about MY writing. I'm out.

I agree with Kimber - just means your getting better. Good job, keep going.

Now if I could just find the motivation to keep at it. I'm trying, but I think my pen has run out of ink.

Yes, yes, you’re supposed to get better each time - or at least that is what I hear.

I think I do that to myself more than I hear it from other people. I'll write something new and feel like it is way better than everything I wrote before. Which makes me feel sort of embrassed to be submitting the stuff I wrote before.

Why have you lost your motivation to keep at it?
