1) I doubted the science fiction story I had written.

Does that sentence make sense?

The idea is that I had doubts about it; I didn't know if it was good or not.

Gratefully,

The sentence seems fine to me.

Without any modifying context, I would assume that the speaker was principally questioning the plausibility of the plot (though it logically follows from that that the quality of the story overall must also suffer).
