A year ago I had an idea about a college aged gay detective solving crimes around his city and learning how to love himself again. I told my friends and a few online buddies and they all told me it was awful, poorly written and very cliche due to the gay element I added. I always wanted to write a detective story or a short story about crimes and solving them. but since my friends and online buddies didn't like it I just stopped writing it and hid it in my idea notebook. I didn't think no one wanted to read about a gay crime solver or detective since they all told me it was a awful idea when they first heard it. Was I wrong to stop writing it?
