This was sort of a weird situation earlier today. I was writing some fanfiction and I posted it. I got a few responses saying "you should publish this!," well naturally as fanfic it really didn't stand a chance. But some published author swaggered in and said "his prose doesn't exactly sparkle, I should know I'm a published author." In the end, I agreed with him. But, to me, writing is the only thing I thought I was good at. It gave me validation. Now, and I know this is pathetic, but I feel horribly depressed atm. I have nothing else going for me. This is horrible.
