So. I have been lurking in this one writing community, and this morning I decided to post a story I just finished. Within minutes, one of the better writers on the website who isn't especially generous when it comes to reviewing commented on the story saying something like: "I can't wait to read more of your work." On the one hand, that compliment made me feel warm and fuzzy inside. On the other hand, it also made me feel like I'm supposed to produce high-quality work all the time. This is ridiculous. I thrive on sloppy writing. That story I posted I happened to have worked on for weeks - a tad bit too long to my liking. Now thanks to that one compliment I received, I have to create a new account and establish myself as the mediocre writer that I am. Because I like spreading my crap for the whole world to see. Pfft.
