How to stop writing c#*p
I am going to give you a key to the kingdom of greatness here, and you are probably not going to like it:
If you would love to be a fantastic writer or creator of anything awesome, here is how to stop producing crapola: Stop Judging It As Crapola.
I am not kidding!!
You know what makes something good or bad? Your judgement of it. That's it. If there was universal right way to do something, we would not have preferences, opinions, variety of any kind, and I think we would have all died of boredom centuries ago. Someone's trash is always someone else's treasure and it purely is the way you look at it.
Sure there are times when a certain creation will be more appropriate in one situation to another, but if you judge a fish on it's ability to climb a tree, it will stare up at that tree, thinking it's completely messed up and never see that behind it lies an ocean just begging for it to swim and play and be awesome in general.
Judgement is a creativity killer and a joy killer. Desire to be more creative, more innovative, more inspirational than you have ever been? Kill the judgement!
Not judging your output, input or basically anything you do takes loads of practice.
From a writing / creating perspective. This does mean writing, and then not criticising or cringing or whatever it is you do to tell yourself you suck.
Stop it. Cut it out. And just... play!
Remember when you made mud pies or sand castles when you were a kid? Did you judge them? No, that would be silly. So how silly are you being right now, judging what you say, do, write, create etc?
Just for today, what if you allowed yourself the joy of being able to say, write or create whatever the fuck you can in this moment... and not judge what shows up? That, my friends, is true freedom!
Oh and here's a cool youtube vid by Sarah Peck to help you with getting over your judgey-wudgey writing habits.
