When you first write, you tend to imitate your favourite writers and you might need to write all that Tolkien or Pullman out of your system. You need to find your own voice but you won’t know how to discover it without writing. But think of this as your apprenticeship. If you were a carpenter, you might keep the first ill-made stool you ever attempted but only for sentimental reasons; you probably wouldn’t want to show it to anyone, least of all someone who needed a stool to sit on.
