Am I a horrible writer?
So i'm a writer, and I've been told that I write beautifully, but most people will either look at my writing as haunting or won't understand it at all. I write in a Elizabethan type style, and it's definitely made writing essays so difficult because i'm a fantasy writer and I hate writing about plain, straight forward things. So in my ap English class my teacher doesn't see that i'm a good writer, but all the other kids are great because they're essay writers...does that make me a bad writer if I'm not good at essays? I feel so lost with my writing...I know i'm a great imaginative writer and I want to desperately be an author, but does being an author require skill in essays?? I've researched ways to be a better writer and purchased many books, but my style is my style...I don't want it to lose its authentic style....oh gosh someone please enlighten me! I need all the help and suggestions possible....D:
