i think y'all deserve an explanation as to why i unpublished 'words'.
that was the first book i'd ever written about two years ago, so ofc my writing was very uncultivated and lacking.
and that bothers me -- a lot.
i can't find feeling in my writing, and especially can't in 'words'. and when others tell me how they find that book meaningful, i can't see it, can't find where they find it. the words in that book, especially, feel bland and shallow, it feels mocking.
i feel that way towards my other books too, no lie, but 'words' takes it on an entirely different level.
@blueviews As an 'author' myself, I often look back on my work and wonder how I or anyone ever thought it was any good, but even though I want to rip it all up and start fresh with something new, I understand that some people appreciate my work light years more than I ever will. That's how I felt with words. It's, to this day, one of the few books I've cried about for days, and then still read back through to relive the torture. I hope you know how much words means to your audience, even if you can't see it's merit, because I wish I could write like that.
