I'm viewing it as a learning - and hopefully a growing - experience, because \i need to try to get some more perspective upon what I write. I used to draw, and many were the times when I would be deeply dissatisfied with the finished article, only to have people praise it beyond any of my own measures.
So the deed was done, and now I sit with this nagging worry in the back of my mind. Oh, the dreadful agonies of the creative process! Don't listen to me: it's not that bad, really.
