A few days ago I wrote what I felt was a nice poem, written from the viewpoint of someone who was dying and wanted to tell their loved ones they’d be okay.
However, it read like a suicide note, so I decided against posting it
I’m glad I’ve made it a habit to proofread such things before I publish them.
I also once wrote a short story I thought was really unique, but did what I always do with such things. That is, I left it for a few days and came back to it before publishing. It looked like I’d ripped off Planet Of The Apes, so I had to scrap it. Dang it!
Do you guys ever have mishaps like that when trying to write things?
