I'm not crazy about this challenge, for all the usual reasons, so I was going to just take the easy out and link to a few favorites from my own fanfiction. But I've done that before, and lately I've been opening up about certain changes in my emotional life -- namely, I've reached a place of inner peace. It's nifty and odd and I want to share it even if I don't know exactly how.
So, speaking as someone who has experienced a lot of self-loathing, inertia, and mild despair, and with all respect and sympathy for those who can relate, please take my word that things can get better. No matter how much I used to obsess over my art and writing, I never really liked being the person who created it. Now I do. There's hope.
