In restarting a writing process, I feel embarrassed, appalling, weird, boring, and stupid on nearly a daily basis.
When I do stand-up, I feel the same.
Ditto for when I try something new or go back to something I started that I liked at the time but feels off now. Or maybe I still love it and it’s just weird?

I desperately want to be good at something.
