Ironically, I was tired of fighting against the urge to sleep today, I slept in and slept all afternoon. Doesn't prevent me from going to bed after finishing up on the computer.

Lately I have been unhappy with the community aspects of intenet life, especially fandom.

Rather aimless and uninspered writing today.

I'm mainly unhappy with the mailing lists, I have sworn off boards long ago. Too much bad fic (that still gets loads of attention despite total lack of characterisation and plot), lack of contructive criticism, too many inane discussions about 'ship (three words: Without A Trace).

Aw. I have to say I've noticed alot of trouble on a few mailing lists lately that puts me off, along with people mostly only reviewing whumping, which as someone who doesn't tend to write whumping even on the odd occasion I do a gen fic tends to get me down seeing so much feedback for those stories and so very little for my own - makes me wonder if mine are bad enough to warrant no feedback... Can't say I've been into Without a Trace (of course I want to see that episode with David Hewlett though ;)) because I missed it on tv so I have no ideas of ships stuff there.

And forums are hard to endure. I'm generally happy with GateWorld for Stargate but there have been some nasty scuffs on it that would put off some. Sort of a feeling of unrest online in fandom generally, someone suggested this was because so many shows are off air and won't be back for months. :s
