Cringing is Part of Creating

Whenever I look back at my old writing or designs, I always find a lot of it cringe worthy. It’s not a very pleasant feeling.

When I was younger this discouraged me from creating new things. After all, if you know you’re going to dislike what you create today in the future, why do it?

But that’s changed.

Now I hope that I do look back on my current work and cringe. Because that means that I will have grown so much that what I’m creating now is laughably horrible.

In fact I think I would be a bit worried if I don’t find my old work at least a little horrible because that means that I’m not improving and growing in my craft.

And that’s the worst thing that could happen.
