27 (who?)
I wish I was the type of person who could create a masterpiece in a matter of moments; rather than slave over something for hours and still not have it quite right.

I wish I had the ability to make words my soldiers; have them form whatever battalion I commanded them to, and call me "Lieutenant."

I wish I could be proud of the armies I train; instead of continuously hating the strategies they impose with which words and phrases they struggle so hard to be.

I wish I could feel the thrill of having twenty-four hours of fame; and actually deserving such an honor.

But most of all?

I wish I didn't have all these ambitions and longings; because I just wish I could be satisfied with the mediocre ambassador of vocabulary that I am.
I really don't think I'm a "good" writer. I don't believe it when people constantly tell me so.

I just wish I could believe it, rather than beating myself up with the opposite side of the argument.

I'm not a good writer. The people who can force words and letters and sentences to create something absolutely, utterly, and breathtakingly beautiful are the ones who deserve that title.

I'm just someone who's pretending I'm just as literary-talented as they are.

You really are a good writer, even if you don't think so. I find YOUR poems breathtakingly beautiful and really relateable. You're great, amazing, wonderful...and that's just you, not your writing. You'll keep improving even more, you'll get published, get your own book, maybe of poetry, maybe of a story....and I'd buy it.

If you could read your MASTERPIECES through others' eyes, you would think very VERY differently.

I think you did wonderfully on this in itself, which is furthur evidence for what a fantastic authoress you are. I wish you could believe the things people tell you because, really, you're brilliant. You really are. You have no idea how much I envy you.

You definitely are, truly. Really. And it's no problem.

I think we all can relate to this in some shape or form. We are truly never happy with what we create. And we can never accept the truth when somebody tells us that we are good at something.

On another note, I thought this was utterly beautiful. Especially with how true it is. You are an amazing writer and your way with words is breathtaking.

Yeah. I think everyone can relate.

But thanks.
I thought this was really cool!
I think we can all relate to this, but I also think you're too harsh on yourself c:
I think you're an amazing writer.
