The end result of play doesn't matter. That means however you feel about said play doesn't matter. What matters is the simple act of doing, of making, of continuing to build. All you'll make, whether personal or professional, will decay anyway. For at least half the time, allow yourself to destroy that work.

When you're writing, be sure to reference the works that inspire you. Note that I don't mean direct references, although those can be worth throwing in as an easter egg. I'm instead talking about being mindful of a work's strengths and weaknesses. For any story you're inspired by, think about what you like, what you don't like, what resonated with you, what didn't. Being aware of how writers that have come before you approached their stories is an immense help when you aim to create your own.
