I write a lot and never cared to share it unless it was pried out of me by invitation or otherwise, mostly because as soon as it was written, it felt worthless to me. Sometimes I wrote just because I needed to get myself to the otherside of where I was and writing helped me get there. I am getting better at sharing what I write for pronouncing it worthless is also a judgment that I am ready to let go of. Let it flow - as is. One sided or Duality. Words or Silence in between words that renders them intelligible.

A spiritual teacher once told me that when we write things down we stop the process. Writing comes from the left brain and processing from the right. Maybe when you read what you wrote, you are reacting to the complexity that didn't get brought out. Perhaps allow the emotion around whatever you are wanting to write down to circle around a bit longer. Then the other part of teacher's recommendation, write as few words as possible. Try to see if yu can distill into once sentence the overall meaning.
