Writing the Best I Can

When I write, I work and work to revise and improve the draft until finally I’m happy with it.   It’s the best I can do. Then I write new things, go through the same writing process, and finally get the new stories to be as good as I can make them. Then I look back at earlier writing, and I’m just not as happy with it anymore. I think this means that I’ve gotten better, and that keeps happening. That striving for improvement, slow but steady as it may be, is definitely a key to success. The trickier balance to achieve is to feel competent enough to keep writing without getting arrogant.
