My writing isn't good enough to be apart of one
RPing or at least RPing done right in my humble opinion is a continual process of self-improvement. People like to imagine it like Bukowski's "so you want to be a writer?", but I'm sure most people here would agree it ain't like that at all. A lot of the times it takes blood, sweat, and copious amounts of alcoho,l but you get through it. Each post you learn a little bit more and maybe even more importantly with each post you read, you get better; for it is my humble opinion is only as good as the stories they've come to know. Cause a lot of it whether people like admitting it or not is a delicate art of stealing in a sense. Taking stylistic traits from others, things that you say are cool or awesome and incorporating it into your own writing. And in the end you have something that is distinctively yours somehow.
But, yeah the only person you are really hurting is yourself when you at least don't try. At the worst you may get rejected. And if that happens, you can do the thing that a lot of people have seen to forgotten and ask about it. I guarantee if you politely PM the GM, asking them why you got rejected a good one will be able to provide criticism to make yourself better. If they don't respond well they probably weren't worth the time anyway. But by pushing yourself and making a conscious effort to improve your writing you will get better. As Ronnie Coleman puts it "Everybody wants to be a bodybuilder, but nobody wants to lift no heavy ass weights." Everyone wants to be a better writer, but unless you put yourself out there it's never gonna happen.
And I'm sure the kind folks here can all tell you stories of how they improved. For example back in the day I was one of those people that wrote one liner posts gasp. Less brevity is the soul of with though and more I was just bad. And now well... Maybe I write too much at this point. lol But, that's the point I'm not perfect and nobody else is either. But that's the beauty of it since RPing is a collaborative art form we can all get better together.
Personally in my experience writing level wasn't my biggest concern when I was GMing. (Maybe, that is part of my own fundamental "upbringing" on the OldGuild back from a time when Advanced was a bunch of elitest shits. Which kind of turned me off the whole every post most be the great American novel method.) I was more concerned with the fact that does this person care, is this person going to give the story 110%. Cause I'd take the super excited guy that posts a solid three paragraphs every time over the super serious writer man any day. Cause RPs in the end are about doing something you love with loveable idiots.
And in the end there is one mantra you can just keep on telling yourself. "Fail Faster."
Anyway time to climb back up the mountain top. See you folks in another 2-3 months.
