Cringy old stories

Not sure why, but I got the urge to go back and read my very first two stories I posted on here and WOW just WOW. I COULD NOT get past the 3rd chapter (4th at most) on either stories becuase I couldn't stop cringing! I know I wasn't the best author back then and I'd like to think my writing has improved, but holy cow I was not expecting to look back at them and cringe as much as I did. I want to think that my second story isn't THAT bad since if I remember correctly, I did start getting better at it as I got towards the end (which later on I even decided to make a sequal for *coughwhichSTILLisntdonecough*) , but I can admit that my own first two stories are cringe worthy... well for me. I can't explain why, I just do (at least for their beginnings since I didn't dare finish reading lol). Maybe because they're older? idk. 

Am I the only weirdo that cringes at some of their old fanfics?

you are not alone. good thing, i've deleted it publicly to be honest. i wouldn't survive reading those.
You're definitely not the only one, haha
When I read the stuff I wrote like... 5 or 6 years ago I cringe so hard. And I always end up wondering what the hell I was thinking when I wrote it.
It's almost funny, in a way. :D
