But I Don't Think I'm Very Good...

I loved writing poetry in high school, but I look back at it now and see it as very "high school-ish."  You know what I mean?  Lately, I've gotten into writing short stories, but I feel like my dialogue tends to be very stilted.  I posted a blog with one of my short stories... let me know what you think!

well why don't you try getting back to the basics first. instead of jumping right in to short stories start at poetry again. What inspires you to write tap in on that. Even jotting down ideas may help. sometimes when I feel like I'm not writing good work I free write don't think about what to write just write it down whatever comes to your mind. Of course when your done what you wrote might not make sense but it will help you clear your mind so you can focus on your task. Try It-Might Help. most important don't second guess yourself if you don't have confidence and like your writing no one else will.
