Don't hate me for this post but I still want your opinions But I recently read a post describing that most children who get published are simply brats who write fantasy rubbish. So, onto the topic of my question do you consider all published works by young authors rubbish. How about all first authors? I think I am a decent writer, but I did a few years ago. I read what I wrote a few years ago and it has nothing. No flow, a "cookie cutter" plot and I even used terms that are used in a video game. However since then I have more onto more sophisticated writing. Any way what are your thoughts? Hope my grammar was ok.
