I was asked a couple questions on what to do when you start comparing yourself to others and how to feel confident in your writing.
Don’t read other people's poetry when working on your poems.
Write for yourself first.
Write what you know. What you’re passionate about.
Practice different styles.
Know the message you want to share.
Remind yourself of the compliments you’ve received on your other poems.
Step away from it and read it later with fresh eyes.
Edit your poems (my editing service).
