“I believe in life that you know that everything prepares you for the next thing, whether it’s a hit whether it’s not a hit. Your failures are your accomplishments because it makes you prepared for whatever it is that you are going to do next.”
This quote is by a very wise man, Lee Daniels. Some of his most well known works are “Empire,” “The Paperboy,” and “Star.”
The only way to grow is to learn from your mistakes and your accomplishments. If you wrote a bad story, you can learn from it and do better next time. Same thing if you wrote a great story. Reflection and critique are key to becoming better at anything, especially writing. If you don’t reflect on your writing, or your life, maybe now would be a good time to start. It could really help in your writing process.
