Look my writing isn't great and I screw up in certain areas but dwelling on it isn't going to get me anywhere. So I decided to continue writing and practice my skills. I was feeling absolutely terrible for posting an awfully written story on this site. Yet I'm deciding to stop feeling terrible and accept the fact that some people find the story good. Not to mention they can help me correct my mistakes if they want. I'm tired of being a coward with low self esteem over writing. I love to write and I refuse to stop because of something like self esteem issues. I want to accept help when it's needed and understand that I am not great but that is ok. Being good enough is fine with me. Trust me it will be hard to stop feeling like I am an awful writer but I got to start somewhere. I just got to believe in myself. But enough about that.

So when have you decided that enough is enough? When have you come to the conclusion, that you are sick of putting yourself down for having awful writing? Does this thread make any sense to you?

Enjoy!!!

Well I'm happy to hear you intend on persevering with your writing. Out of curiosity tho, what was it exactly that you didn't like about your story?

Ah, I see. Yes, that may be a bit of a damper on the finished product. I thought you were taking creative writing though, wouldn't they be teaching you about that stuff there?

No. I was mainly concern with my screw ups when I write.

See if you can find an editor who can read it for you and make corrections.

Best suggestion I can give you, all writers have their work edited and revised before the final product is released.

You can also learn to grammar more gooder, but getting an editor works too.

Just get a friend to read it over and make corrections to grammar and make suggestions then. I didn't say you had to pay someone

I don't know if I want to waste their time with my terribly written stories. But it is a good thought.

Yeah, it's possible to improve your skills. It's something everyone should be trying to do, constantly.

And you can also post things for critique. That's how you get better.
