Everyone has some modicum of talent in any one particular field, or indeed fields. It's whether one has the committment and staying power through both praise and critique that defines a success.
In this respect, I think we can count ourselves lucky to be a part of such a vibrant community that is more liberal, open and free-thinking than most can ever hope to be.
As PT said, not so much in all aspects. We'd like to think we are, but we have really no differences from a high-school clique in other areas. But for another thread
And this is a perfect example of such. The support base and routes/branches made available to us are as good as they can ever be, given the niche status. The health of furry writing lies within the community's structure, as an entity whose members actively seek to support one another. A continuation in seeing through the artistically niche/underground aspect of works, might encourage writers to see it all as an evermore 'common rarity'.
As one very famous man said... "power to the people".
Well, perhaps, but there's a small problem with that. It's easy to offer support to others, but I'm not going to offer a lot of editorial support. I've rewritten people's stuff before, and I don't wish to do that again.
And that's a great problem we have. We don't have a community, really. We have people aligned towards goals that involve writing, but they aren't the same goals, they aren't the same ideas.
The future may indeed be bright, but let's not kid ourselves. We have a long way to go to create a cohesive community that can offer the help you mention.
