Ruminations continued

 Years later, I had been going through some old papers and I found the old manuscript I had worked on so long ago.  Was it really the bad? I thought to myself.  I pulled it out and began to read it over.

It was every bit that bad.  If anything, the class had been too kind to me.  I was disgusted that I had ever thought this was worth showing to anyone. 

I burned that manuscript and scattered its ashes.  As I threw the pages into the fire, I threw any plans or dreams of being a writer with them.
