My incredible new story sucks

Hi everyone,

Remember a while back when I had this idea for a fanastic story that would have editors panting and lining up for it?

I just finished the first draft of the story.

It’s awful. Wooden. Heavy handed. Pointless. Witless. Not remotely funny. I hate it.

What was I thinking!

Thank goodness it’s only a first draft. I can revise! I can make it better. Maybe there’s hope yet that one day the final version might approach the original dream. Fingers crossed . . .
