UPDATE 3/22/13: I just want to thank everyone who has commented thus far for their comments. I am sorry it took me so long to reply to them, but I got into watching The Hobbit and I didn’t notice my phone chiming.
I am writing this Thursday night.
I am reading fan-fiction, and questioning my writing ability. I am 99% sure this is a completely normal process, but I seriously question whether I can write and that those of you who like or comment on the posts where I showcase my stories/poems are just stringing me along.
I sometimes question if I am leaving out descriptive words, or being too descriptive. It’s a thin line between great and mediocre writing. I have stepped away from my story again, and my midterm paper is due next week, so there goes that free time I would have used for writing my story.
And as I read fan-fictions about Gwaine or Merthur, I wonder if I really suck at writing. I can picture Gwaine/Eoin (as they’re sometimes written) making the tight faces of someone who is angry, and I wonder if I convey the same thing for those who read my work.
I am not asking you bolster me; just tell me if I suck.
