I am having a meltdown.

Okay. I am having one of those nights. Y'know, the night when the writer opens up a couple of word documents and realizes that everything she's ever written sucks so hard omg.

I seriously just ripped apart an article I wrote for my Magazine writing class. Deleting whole paragraphs and just staring in a state of shock while my inner editor is screaming, "WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING?" I should break my pens, burn my pencils, boil my paper, spill my ink and stay far, far away from anything with a keyboard.

This article was supposed to be light-hearted, witty, and funny? I may have even convinced myself that it was at one point, but as I read it over the humor sounds forced and there are bad puns. *buries head in shame*

Really now, what made me think I could do this? Clearly, I was wrong. I could open up any of my articles or stories and all I'd see is, "wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong."

Ugh. I fail.

N'aaw. Thx.

I think it's gonna be better today. I gave up and slept for a good 10 hours, and I think that I may've just been overtired and cranky. We'll find out when I try to get back to the questioning.
