This kind of sounds like me a long time ago.
Some learning tips from this article:
“The one consolation through all this was that my stories did improve — slowly — and I was just aware enough of my shortcomings as a fiction writer to keep sloughing layers of dead skin. ”
“Looking back at them now, these stories that once seemed so wild and vibrant now seem amazingly bland, because the characters are nondescript. Literally, “nondescript” is the best word for them — they’re not really described very well, and they’re mostly ciphers on which a bunch of action is hung. The stories are over before they really get going, or they drag on and on without developing anything.”
