I remember you said that you gave you writing to a friend for review and she said you had a gift for writing. So this is quite subjective, not an objective truth that you suck.I can objectively say that people who think they suck don't suck if they know a lot about the subject. For example, if you're a successful swimming coach who has taught many people how to swim I know that you don't suck.
I can't objectively say that I don't suck. In fact, I know that I do suck and am at best mediocre at my "best" skills. For example, my writing skills are average. Most professional writers are better than me. My skills are nothing outstanding and each year, they seem to be worth less and less.
Obviously it's hard to say anything objectively about yourself but at whatever abilities I look in myself, I just don't have any skills I'm really good at. I know a little about many subjects but I'm not an expert in any of them.
I'm not sure it's really that useful to be a generalist as there's little value you can offer if you're not a true expert who knows answers to most questions (and has the results and credibility to back it up).
So whatever new business ideas I have now, in the end I always discard them because everyone could gain the same experience in very little time.
You could let the market decide how good is your writing, IMO the best option, (just try to not burn lots of cash on ads).
