Does my writing suck?

I’ve been having difficulties making it in the business. The recent news of some One Direction fan bitch landing a book deal based on her damn fan fiction on Wattpad has struck me the wrong way. I wonder, why is it that I can’t get even a toenail on the door, when others can get it almost instantaneously? It horrified me. It depresses me. It makes me think that my only employable skill isn’t worth a damn, and that all the years I spent writing, reading, and honing my craft were all for naught. So, does my writing suck? I don’t want to day that it does, of course, but from what I’ve experienced, it’s not even good enough for trashy fan fiction. I may come across as negative, but it’s because writing is everything to me, and I can’t help but be discouraged when I face setbacks in my chosen profession. I desperately want and need to be a success. Writing is the only thing that I know that I can do, and now I’m doubting my talents, if I had any to begin with. What am I doing wrong? What am I doing right?

  1. Composing complex sentences has grown increasingly unfashionable in the age of twitter, instagram and snapchat. This helps explain the perceived literary merits of a One Direction groupie. Consider installing buttock implants and projecting your work onto them via an extensive series of instagram posts. That is the surest way to find an audience.
