As I try to ease myself back into writing, I found myself revisiting some of my older pieces. (I’ll be honest, I was also trying to go through and save anything that might disappear in the new Medium, but…again, a post for another day.) What was really odd was how foreign they seemed. I found myself actually thinking, “oh wow, this is pretty good! I wonder who…oh. Weird.”
Is this a normal thing? Can you get so far away from your own words that they feel completely alien to you, so much so that your brain tries to credit someone else with its own creation?
And how can you get back to the place where you’re creating at that level?
