when u read a fanfic u started writing a year ago and cringe

Quote:
He’s a few drinks in, feeling a little better. Things are slightly more hazy around the edges. He taps his fingers to the beat against the kitchen counter that belongs to some friend of a friend. Or a classmate. Same thing.
“Hey there, Sammy,” comes a familiar voice from behind him. Turning, Sam recognizes the face. The man is shorter than him, with brown hair framing his face. Momentarily, Sam recalls their spin last Thursday night, but pushes it to the back of his mind.
“Told you not to call me that,” he mutters. “Didn’t know you’d be here, Gabe.”
“Well of course I’d be here. I crash all the parties,” Gabriel says, smirking. He leans over Sam’s side to snatch a cookie off the plate on the counter, but doesn’t lean back quite as far as he happily munches away.

Bernie even acts like a tiny bird
he is more fledgling than most fledglings

i've been stuck for about two months at just around 90,000 words, maybe a little more. I'm nearly halfway through the book?? Maybe?? A third, possibly?

Anyway, I got on my computer last night, opened Scrivener, and typed up the last chapter (or what I think will be the last chapter). I have an end point written in pencil now. A clear finish line. Hopefully that will speed up the writing process. ALSO i'm SUPER close to a really big goal, 100,000 words. So after I cross that hump, I'm thinking I'll speed up.

I'm finding myself increasingly irritated by how shallow my stories seem. I know that they have deeper meanings, but how do you get those meanings across to the reader without rambling? How do you keep from falling into the trap of sacrificing depth for the sake of holding the reader's interest?
