Hello on Thursday!  What kind of a writing day has it been today -- or yesterday, if today hasn't gotten going yet?
  •     I thought about my fic once or twice
  •     I wrote
  •     I did some planning and/or research
  •     I edited
  •     I've sent my fic off to my beta
  •     I posted today!
  •     I'm taking a break
  •     I did something else that I'll talk about in a comment
Thursday Discussion - Do you ever go back and reread old stories you've written?  Are you encouraged or discouraged by their quality

Posted a fic I started last year. \o/ I will try to poke at the big bang draft later today, we'll see how the day goes.

I wrote! If I can keep up my current pensum, I'll be able to make up for the two lost weeks pretty soon. We'll see how it goes.

I often reread old fics. First of all, I'm mostly in tiny fandoms where there's not much else to read. Second, I usually write things that are exactly to my taste. ;) Third, I find it interesting to compare how a fic feels after I got a greater distance from it to how it felt while I was working on it. Rereading a fic I haven't looked at in a while is the closest I can get to looking at it from an outsider's perspective.

I'm usually still quite happy with my old fics and they are a good reminder that no matter how bad I feel during the writing process, I'm usually able to turn it into something decent.

I wrote a bit. One of my planned fic is almost nearing to the end.

I do reread my old stories. Some stories make me feel happy but majority just go into the cringe worthy category. But I don't necessarily get discouraged though. It was an idea that I loved writing so I'm happy that I wrote the fic for myself regardless how cringe-worthy it may feel in another few years

I recuperated and managed my stress. Writing should be back on the table in the near future. Tired, but almost to the end of this long stretch of work days.

I go back and reread the old material fairly frequently, but it tends to give me the itch to do another edit, rewrite, etc.
