What can I offer as a writer?

So often I hear an author’s powers of observation praised, perhaps as a “keen observer” of people or places.  I’m not.  Most often, when people compliment my writing, it’s for capturing the emotions we all feel or making the reader feel something.  I’m intelligent, but not brilliant.  I read reviews praising the layers of a novel.  I don’t layer.  I’m a straight forward storyteller.  Perhaps someday I’ll have more facility with all the things authors are praised for but, right now, storytelling will have to do.
