Thanks, I am however just being honest


Got to say that I don't agree. Lots of people in the literary community have noted that what they hate most about aspiring writers is them using the opinions of friends and family (ie biased opinions) as evidence that their work is good. Also it is said that 1000s if not 100s of thousands of manuscripts are sent off which are completely rubbish and unprintable. Which means that 1000s of authors think their work is above average (ie worth publishing or reading) when in fact is is not.

If you mean having written 2 novels by the age of 15 is above average then I think it depends on where you are looking, because I had done the same thing by that age. I just put it on a back burner until after, school, college and university and am now in the process of writing things to a new standard.

Not only that but I think you should leave it up to other people to praise you as the saying goes "Self praise is no praise." Though I must acknowledge that you are only responding to a thread which invites conceited replies. It's highly unlikely that anyone was going to reply that they are completely crap, after having first joined a "Story Writers Group.

Therefore again I have to say "Modesty is a virtue".
