I keep all of my writing in a fancy 8GB flash drive. It is all sorted by the writing format, genre, etc... There is also a folder full of Blogger templates in there that I've yet to dive into, but that's a different story. I feel like I'm at a pivotal point in my life because the other day I read everything on that flash drive, even my old high school term papers, and came to the conclusion that it all sucked. I felt like some of it was too pretentious, or too choppy, or too boring. There was nothing in there I wanted to expand upon. I have a whole folder filled with in-depth character sketches, all done in interview style, and I hated all of my characters! I felt like they were two-dimensional with no clear goals. I like writing character heavy fiction so this was a total blow to my ego. Has anyone else had this happen? What does this mean? Should I just give up as a writer? I feel like reformatting my flash drive and starting over again, but what if I want to retrieve that crap later?
