Be creative! Take the oldest piece of your own writing that you can find. Try to remember what your goal was with that piece–or imagine a new goal–and try to recapture that. When you’re done, compare your new work with the old.Then pat yourself on the back for all of your new experience!
Who knows, you might even discover that you had a wonderful idea then and that you might want to use it again now.
If you’re brave enough to post, don’t forget to tag I dare you to write and indicate wether or not concrit is welcome.
