@Fro: no one in particular I guess. Although Del Ray might be up my alley, considering their history publishing sci fi, fantasy, and science fantasy. But as I said on another topic just today, I'm going to concentrate on becoming truly good before I move on to pushing to publish. I'll never forgive myself if I rush out a product I don't feel is ready.

That awkward moment giving up sounds reasonable. Damn I'm getting too old. Or rather jaded.

I think it's too late for me though to be honest. No matter how down in the dumps I am about the quality of my stuff, or how lazy I'll get with reading literature will always be a part of my life.

Also don't underestimate the greatness of Canon. Seriously, you could just be a canon-only guy and you'd level up in all sorts of ways writing and art wise. It's simply a gold mine for inspiration.

I sound biased but it's true all across the board. No matter which community you land in if there's that RP element to it you've got to believe you're going to be firing at full pistons. It's just the way it is. It's an almost primeval need for humans to build up worlds and stuff. I imagine back in the day after a good mammoth hunt the only way to bridge the monotony of dying horribly, hunting eating and sleeping was crafting entire universes on cave walls, excitedly telling and retelling things until the stories became second nature to everyone in the commune.

Or something like that...

And sex. Don't forget sex.

It may be too late for you to be a youn manga writer TM, Lego. But it's never to late in life to be a writer. Remember Ulysses S. Grant, who wrote his first and only book for the first time in his life the month before he died of throat cancer. He ended up being extremely well received.

Hard for poetry to succeed these days. Most people have a lot of preconceptions about poetry that cloud their readings. I think they forget to read what the actual words say concretely when their abstract meaning isn't immediately apparent.

I confess I haven't written a word of fiction prose in a while. One has to make economic decisions and between work, music, and dicking around on the internet, my schedule's full up.
