Рабочий момент

Меня передёргивает перечитывать свои записи даже этого года, не говоря уже о более ранних. Корявый язык, тавтологии и множество больших и мелких огрехов, которых можно и нужно избегать.

*****

I cringe to reread many of my entries, even those that I wrote this year, let alone earlier. Such heavy language, battologies and and a multitude of serious and less serious instances of bad everything that could and should have been avoided.

Why do you cringe?

I don't see anything cringeworthy when I read your journal.

Plus you speak English FAR, FAR, better than I speak Russian lol!

I cringe because when I read it again after a while, I can pull back and analyze the writing and not only the content, and I see that if I had spent a little more time on it, it would've been better.

But this does not mean "woe is me, I write horribly, I better not do it anymore", but rather "there are too many things I should pay attention to simultaneously". :)

I hadn't read it as that so I hope my answer didn't come across as me thinking that's what you meant!

But I still say I enjoy reading the things you write in your journal and I don't go "Oh that's cringy!"

It is really good that you can look back and see how you have improved over time.

myself, I am never happy with the things I write, and I could keep on editing each piece forever. I'm often glad of deadlines so I can go "that's it now, stop! that's enough editing!"

Мечтаю почистить журнал, но как представлю сколько срамоты читать придётся, так сразу это дело отодвигаю.

Почистить в смысле удалить часть записей или поправить то, что плохо написано? :-)

Да удалить к чертям, нечего там править...

me too, about my earlier entries! But it's a sign of growth, so good job you ;-)

I cannot stand my earliest entries, so the first couple of years of my journal are friends locked. (I am not deleting them because they they were written honestly and I am not making them private because that's against the point of a blog.)

And I agree about growth and perhaps growing pains :-)
