Hating your writing is a sign of growth

Hating your writing is a sign of growth

The creative gap describes the difference between what you think you’re capable of writing and what you wrote.

When you read an old article and hate it, don’t beat yourself too much. It just means that you’re growing.

The creative gap drives you to improve

When you feel upset about your writing, grab a book, devour some pages, then write some. 

If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot.

It’s better to underestimate yourself than to be delusional

No one ever achieved something by constantly yelling, "you're the best writer out there!" In front of a mirror. 

It's healthier to tell yourself, "look. Right now, you're not where you want to be as a writer. To get there, you gotta be humble, seek feedback, and break a sweat or twenty-two."

Other people will love your work, and that matters more

It's not up to you, creator, to decide the value of your creation. It's the audience that gives value to creative work. If someone takes the time to open the comment section and compose a short admirative text, embrace it. 

And the next time you hesitate to publish a text you hate, remember that someone else may love it.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
