The Shores of Alone
Agreeing with the rest. If you want to write, you will, and if you are worried about someone's expectations, I say just be you, and see where it leads.
I was told by an English Professor that I was too emotional of a writer,and I would never make it. I changed majors because of it. Something I regretted ever since. I was even afraid to show anyone my writing until I found this place. And I think most people like my writing, at least a little. So I would like to find him and slap him, really, for affecting me so much at a vulnerable moment.
Your story is the opposite, but it is the same in the end, you have to do what feels right to you.
