I'm having one of those days in which everything I do just seems so uninspired. I re-read things I've written and suddenly they all seem so terribly flat and shallow, and the upward slope from what I'm capable of to what I want to be capable of starts looking less and less like a slope and more and more like a wall.

Discouraged.

Days like these that one xkcd comic hits way too close to home. "The thing standing in the way of your dreams is that the person having them is you."

It'll pass soon, I hope. Not sure what to do with myself in the meantime.

For what it's worth, I've always enjoyed reading the stuff you write--your way with words is fantastic.

Thinking of you.

Aw, thank you. That is reassuring to hear, especially since it's coming from you.

Just keep your chin up and keep doing what you do. I can say this:

One of the things I remember from so long ago is that you have always been a fantastically creative person. Your writing was smart and evocative. I can recall being envious of what a great writer you were, and I don't expect you've gotten worse at it.

That's my opinion, for what little that's worth.
