On having really high standards for no fucking reason

So, yeah, shut up. I know it's been a while, but I really haven't had anything to write about. I went through a really bad case of writer's block and I only hope that my constantly writing has stopped it. It was coupled with a severe attack of malaise. Basically, I was feeling that my writing was really shitty. I think I figured out this was because sometimes I think my standards are too high when it comes to fiction.
For example, I hate like everything. EVERYTHING. I'm sure there are lots of good shows on TV (actually, I'm being really nice on this one. There isn't very much out there that says "This show is good")and I'm sure there are good books and comics (Ahahhahahaha yeah right) out there too. But, I just can't bring myself to like most of it. I'm sure this happens to a lot of authors. The temptation to be an elitist is huge. You just need to be better than everything you read.
And, well, I had to deal with that. Because, after all, if I can't beat them, then what's the point? But, then I just decided to ignore that and here I am. Awesome.
