I feel so shattered right now, I just finished a chapter and my mom turned off my computer (by accident) and I lost my 7-page chapter with TWO battle scenes ;_; Anyways, there's no use crying over spilled milk. I'm just gonna work on the next chapter first, and then come back to re-write it again. This makes me want to raise a topic but there's already one right now... so yeah :P To answering!
Does age really matter how well you write? How did you start out when you first started writing?
To me, it really all depends on when a person starts writing. To me, good writers are talented or experienced. A person with 10 post count who writes a fic at the same quality as someone who started and finished 4 fictions sounds talented to me. However, no one knows how old one is behind the screen, or how experienced they are. Post counts don't mean anything. The 4 post counts guy could just be a really bored professional writer under disguise. I'm straying off though. Anyways, I restate the fact that I personally think it depends on when a person starts writing, and if they've actually improved or not. So age sort of matters, but you can't judge a book by its cover. Same applies for writers. However, I agree with the general consensus that older writers generally write better. Though, as long as I enjoy their work, it doesn't matter to me how old they are, I just... enjoy it!
As for my beginning, my writing use to suck. Horrible grammar ... -_- It makes me cringe whenever I see my old work, and I'm sure when I go older I'll cringe when I look at the work I posted on serebii...
