I Like To Write Not Good.

So I like to make sure that I write terribly sometimes. This may sound like terrible advice, and maybe it is. But I think it has its advantages.

For example, people never have to know which are your terribly written stories if you don't tell them. They may guess, they may even be right. But on the off chance they think that the story you wrote honestly was just another one of your "joke" stories, your reputation as a fabulous writer is safe. This is a great safety net for those of us who are deathly afraid of failure.

The other advantage is this. It might or might not improve your writing, but it will certainly improve your mood.
