comment Is this stylized writing successful or gimmicky?
"...what teenager speaks that way?" An impossibly angsty one who thinks "deep" thoughts.

No problem! I read what I wrote again and it does kind of sound like I'm saying "just publish turds and they'll sell!" I'm not. If your first reader(or beta reader, whatever) hates it, start over! Don't try to do major surgery!

@Steven Drennon: I don't mean to say that writers shouldn't hold their work to a high standard. I wanted to show that rewriting is not always the best option. Do you think that if someone has written a bad story (because they are inexperienced) that their inner editor(also inexperienced) is going to do a much better job when it comes to writing an engaging story? That's why my advice is to start over if it turns out that the story is not so good.
