Making mistakes

When I first started writing, I had a lot of spelling, grammar, and punctuation mistakes that distracted some of my readers.

Last year, when I was doing a story a day, I had one reader tell me I should proofread it better because they couldn’t enjoy the writing.

Both times, it stopped me from writing. The first time was fifteen years. The second time was ten months.

But I kept showing up, doing the work and practicing.

It’s about trying. It’s about risking myself to look stupid so that I can grow.

Sometimes making mistakes is the only way we learn.
