When I read other writers on Medium, their words seem to dance gracefully off the page to create vivid imagery whereas my own words feel like they are clumsily painting stick figures.
A Self-Indulgent Check-in on Writing
Renee Cheung

I often feel the same Renee. It is so easy to become discouraged when reading the smart and creative writers here! I think you are one of them.;)

When I feel that creeping into my thoughts, I push back. Shut up self!

I am making an offering of myself and my words here. It feeds me to do so. They may not be as eloquent or intelligent as others, but the feeling behind them is mine. Maybe some readers are searching for that feeling and will take my words as they are. If not, I’ll learn to adjust and improve — by reading those other great writers! HaHa

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
