I don't know, but for some reason, when I write something regarding these, I feel compelled to delve deeper. I mean, especially in the case of movies, it's as if I don't want to readily believe the things I read on the internet and then write about them as if they're already true. I want to validate the credibility of most of the sources of my write-ups, but I just don't seem to have the proper ways to do so.
The same goes for when I wrote about The Expendables 3. At least I could verify that Bruce Willis won't be in the movie and Harrison Ford will take his spot, because it was Sly himself who confirmed it via his Twitter. Now, there's a news update saying that Mel Gibson and Antonio Banderas are going to be in it. For some reason, while I also wrote about it, I'm resisting the urge to believe the news.
I couldn't help but want to verify it further. It's as if the inner journalist in me wants to dig deeper into the news. Ever since Sly tweeted about Ford's inclusion in the film, I felt that the only one I could trust about the updates regarding EX3 is Sly himself.
Sadly, though, as much as I want to take my scoops myself, I'm not living in Hollywood. I guess I have no other choice but to just cite my sources every time I write about movies, so I can't get accused of fabricating stuff.
And also, from time to time, I try to minimize my personal opinions in my news articles, because the pseudo-journalist code I sort of live by wants me to do so. I have all the right to write anything in this site in any way I want, but I don't know why I don't give myself enough creative liberty.
I've also put up different sections for the things I wrote and will write in the future, but again, I don't know if these separators help at all in classifying each item. You might say OCD works wonders, but for me, not all the time.
I guess this is why I am a frustrated writer.
But yeah, I'll still continue to do what I've started here. I don't know how hard it will be to implement, but I need to let things I write flow as they do, and I have to stop my OCD from getting in the way of my writing, or I will not enjoy what I do at all.
Another challenge has been laid.
