I know I'm not writing the greatest novel ever, but I do feel like my story is really freaking awesome. It's the first time I write a story, I've been working on it for a year almost. I'm currently 40k words into the second rewrite, but I really think it's going to be awesome. I hear lot's of people who say they looked back to their early works and found it laughable, I'd like to know if this happened to you, do you remember when writing it, did you feel like what you wrote was the best thing ever? I know I'll get better with time, but as of now, I think my story could compete with real novels and/or movies (story wise). I know this might sound arrogant but I want to know if other people feel this way about their own work.
