Okay, I give in. I have talent, everyone who sees a sample of my work is in awe and believes I could make it as a professional author. I have little doubt in my mind. I'm more concerned with getting attention than improving my skill. Not that I'm saying I don't need improvement, there's never enough, I'm just saying I have bigger things on my plate, like advertising myself since I was planning on going with self-publishing, mostly for more creative control over my art. But of course, everyone in this bullshit community just wants to brainwash you into not even trying. Tell me, do you seriously think its impossible, or are you just trying to eliminate competition? Telling me 'no, don't do what you love, don't do what you're good at, you need to find a job in a community where there are no job offers, literally, and you can't possibly get a fucking job bc you're a fucking 30 year old that's never been employed. oh, and my sister doubts I could handle an actual job anyway. So fuck you all, I don't need bullshit like this. I'm doing what I want and I don't give a fucking shit if you fear someone whose work you've never even seen may seriously be competition for you. You want to see a sample of my work? Okay then, here's a poem I wrote years ago when I was in a bad mood. Yeah, I could've done better. I think I did a lot better with the speech I wrote for my father's memorial service, but that's far too personal to put online. And note, I was still going to do fantasy at the time. And actually sitting down to write (more for therapeutic reasons than anything else honestly, I'll probably never show anyone what I'm currently writing, I decided I had some issues I needed to work out first), I think I may still do fantasy anyway. I can't write superheros, bc I can't make them make sense. At least with fantasy I can make it all make sense.
