LOL! Don't do what I did. The more you rewrite, the more highly attuned you become to your mistakes (which objectively might not be mistakes). Join a critique group; get feedback; study your craft. I can't say whether you should return to your former stories (poems, etc.) or move in new directions. It depends on what motivates you to write. However, if you are motivated to write, you probably should. Creativity represents a powerful force that psychologists say shouldn't be ignored or repressed.
