I recently took some time to read through a number of articles and posts I have written over the past 5 years. It seems, the further back I traveled, the more critical I became of my writing. Is this just me or is this common to all writers? I recall an interview conducted with Woody Allen some years ago where he said he was never happy with anything he had written or produced.
