I'm not sure about the writing I produced. - To recap: I joined a writer's group that does "freeflow" writing from prompts, 4 prompts writing for 10 minutes each time. This is not a critique group. - I felt good about some of it, but not all of it. I don't expect an instant stellar piece every time my pen hits the page, but I usually feel better about the quality of my work than I did this last time. I've even given myself a couple of days to think about it and perspective isn't making the "meh" feeling go away.
Why am I feeling that way? We all have off-days, right? I don't go to the group just to feel good about myself. I go because I enjoy it and it keeps my writer juices flowing. I've definitely left the group before and looked at some of the pieces I wrote and thought, well, I'll never use that for anything. Do I feel this way because I'm tired? I've had a busy couple of weeks and not a lot of sleep. That can produce either work that's questionable in quality or a lack of positive feeling about work regardless of the quality, right? Meh.
