I find talent in other's writing far more often than I see it in my own. That's exactly how.

That's the critic in you coming out. Of course you look at your writing more critically then you do others because you want it to be the best writing it can be. Similarly, you find talent where most don't because you're looking for those nuggets that most would pass over. That's just you applying your skills to see why people who are good at their craft and what they do to achieve that greatness.

If it helps you any, you could always compare you writing to mine. I mean, hell, I'm supposed to be the writer and yet I've heard people say they'd rather watch all seasons of Watching Grass Grow back to back then read two consecutive sentences of mine. Remember, no matter how bad you may think you are, there's someone worse then you.

I appreciate your attempt at a pep talk, and after your first paragraph, I was surprised at the sense you were making, and proud that you came up with such a meaningful reply.

But seriously, I don't use other people's failure as my measuring stick.

That's my success I was referring to. My failures be damned!

I don't use other's failure as my measuring stick. I hold myself to a higher standard: My own.

Your own standards or your own failures?

"I hold myself to a higher standard: My own."
"I hold myself to a higher standard: My"
"I hold myself to a higher standard:"
"hold myself to a higher standard"
"myself to a higher standard"
"to a higher standard"
"a higher standard"
"higher standard"
"standard"

*covers my eyes*

I can't see any talent here.

Ass. Get over it. You've got talent. Now USE it. Prove to us that you really are a cunning linguist.
