Thanks!  Flattered to know that someone wrote an LNH story because of me.

I don't really hate anything I write either, although I am aware when
something in one of my stories sucks (If something sucks it's usually
because I just couldn't think of a clever way to fix it and just gave up on
it and left it in).

You just need to write and write.  The more you write the better you usually
get (well till you reach the peak of your ability then everything starts to
go downhill).

I guess when I write I try to write stuff that I want to see and no one else
seems to want to write.  I also believe if I can just keeping pushing myself
I'll get better and better.  I suppose passion and drive are important
things to have when you're writing and the belief that what you're writing
is worth writing.
