I started writing in 2008 and have been teaching myself how to improve ever since. I'm getting there.

In 2012, I start Moral Fortitude, where self published LGBT authors can promote themselves and their stories for free. I also provide information regarding getting started as a self publisher, finding a publisher and other useful information.

Oh wow - thank you, that was so nice of you to say.
If you want to become a great writer - then you are already on your way. Just wanting something and working slowly towards it can one day bring you great personal rewards. The key is to keep at it and do it for yourself.
And never be afraid to break clique and write that one story that ends in tragedy. :D
RaeKitano commented on How I come up with a story idea

I'm glad this has helped - I had forgotten all about this and the story I intended to write. I did start the first two chapters of this story but, alas, I never finished it. I think the key to any story is to find the one you want to write. Have fun creating your characters, don't be afraid to give them dull boring lives/jobs/ personalities and build a great story around them. And mostly, have fun and enjoy what you write.

I read your authors note, read your first chapter, and then came back here to answer. I'm not sure if I'm reading this right but does your main character full in love with a minor. If this is the issue, rather than adding an adult love interest perhaps consider making your minor a legal age.

I'm taking a stab here - if the love interest is one of the brothers -  Lucy is still 19, make Rome/Troy 18, then he's legal and make the younger two twins. This might then allow you to keep a larger portion of your story rather than completely changing it.

Also in you description of your story you have Jeremy and in you chapter you have Dylan, not sure if they are the same person or not. 

If I'm just rambling on and have no idea what I'm talking about - please ignore my comment :)
