You are being way to easy on people. It is not that most work isn’t good enough, it is that 99.9% of it actively sucks. I mean it blows, it is terrible, mind alteringly, soul shatteringly awful. So bad it makes you want to gouge out your own eyeballs and pull out all you hair. So shitty it makes shit look like gold and so ugly it makes Gerard Depardieu look like Bradd Pitt. A lot of people’s writing is even worse then the writing making up the very response that you are currently reading. I know it is hard to believe, but it is true. The writing in this response fucking blows so think about what that means for all the other writing out there. It must really, really, fucking suck. And guess what, it does. Yep, it fucking blows hard. Truly sucks. Bad. Who would want to read crap like this, let alone all the other crap out there that is way, way, way worse then this. And this sucks hard. So, really stop for a second and take a deep breath. OK, now think about how shitty what you are currently reading is. Now, one more deep breath. OK, the vast majority of crap out there is even worse. Fuckin crazy right. Damn people suck at writing. Worse then me even. It’s plain nuts if you think about it too much. Don’t. Think about it. It’s just easier that way.
