I actually write for a living. Well, more or less. It accounts for about 60-70% of my income. I do very much enjoy my work, as well as the writing I do on the side, both on and offline. I've never really thought I was particularly great at it, but thankfully my job doesn't need me to be a super professional writer, just creative.

I tend to wander around role-playing forums every once in a while, because I love that feeling I get when I participate in some communal writing. Though I've generally never stuck around them for long, it's still a lot of fun and I've met plenty of nice people through them. And some not-so-nice ones, but then, that's life.

As for all the people saying they're not good at it, that's not really the point of writing! If you enjoy it, do it. Even if you think you're bad, eventually you'll pick up this or that, and find your own style that works for you. I think it's a very emotionally rewarding activity.

I like writing stories and they usually start off really good, but fall apart half way through...

Never written a story before, but I do sometimes come up with fanfiction ideas, and am tempted to write them. Maybe I should, see how it turns out.

That's true. I guess I'll give it a go sometime, just have to sit down and draw up an outline, rough draft, then have some unfortunate soul kind stranger give me their thoughts on it.
