Alright, I’ll Stop Being a Drama Queen

So before I write anything else today, I thought I’d continue a conversation I started yesterday where I stated I didn’t really feel like reviewing TV shows anymore as it’s been pointed out to me it might not be my “thing,” and I did believe many of the criticisms I was getting had merit.

But what I was NOT expecting was a response from you guys so far in the other direction. Almost fifty comments is a lot for this site, and I guess I just hadn’t heard from a lot of you in a while (or ever) and I didn’t think that many people would miss something like a Dexter review.

I received a particularly encouraging email from one of my bigger critics last night that really drove the point home that I shouldn’t be discouraged just because my writing isn’t for everyone. I am proud of my work, and I should try to continually get better, not just quit when I might not be the best at something.

This week has also just been tough in general as I’m currently sorting through the disaster that was my computer self-destructing, and a massive data loss that included a lot of creative projects I”d been working on with books, screenplays and the like. I’d backed up, but not often enough, and I lost a big chunk of stuff and am now facing the prospect of having to shell out for a brand new computer, when I just got one barely a year ago. The laptop I’m writing on now is practically steam powered.

Maybe it’s not “professional” to be talking about all this, or to be real about struggles I face with my writing or the site, but I like to think that’s part of the appeal of Unreality, that’s it’s a real person writing this stuff, and not just some random name.

Anyway, moral of the story, I’ll continue with my Dexter reviews for this season starting next week, and will definitely bring back Game of Thrones down the road. Breaking Bad? Eh, perhaps not, though I’m open to other suggestions.

I really do appreciate all of your support, and I’ll stop complaining and get back to making Unreality as kickass as possible.
