I’m having trouble with motivation to edit pieces. My writing is kind of sucky, and ends up being sucky whether I put in 1 hour or 5 hours into a story. I feel like it’s almost better to just put in the 1 hour of writing and move on, rather than 1 hour of writing (which I enjoy) and 4 hours of editing (which I do not enjoy), since it ends up bad anyways (Me being thin-skinned is part of the issue, but I can’t just stop being sensitive). How do you move past this and start actually writing well?

write for one hour and then move on to the next piece

writing is all about practice. If you don’t feel ready to invest six hours into a piece, don’t. If you only want to spend five minutes on a piece, only spend five minutes. Keep creating. You’ll find your rhythem in there eventually.
