My God, I’m terrible

by gbsmith4

I had started this missive today with some thoughts on success.  But, when I was polishing it up, I realized it was fairly nauseating.  Nothing new, really, and just more of “look how great I am.”  I hate big egos, and especially hate it when I’m the culprit.

Even worse, in putting together my thoughts, I went back and perused some of my older posts.  Ouch: one poorly written column after another.  Oh, there a few good lines sprinkled here and there, but overall — honestly — my writing grows worse with age.

Now who are good writers?  I think Joseph Epstein is phenomenal.  Joe Queenan is terrific.  Dave Barry is extremely clever.

On the other hand, I’m not doing this for a living.  Thankfully.
