Writer's Block: Quantity vs. Quality

Would you rather have a small amount of something very good, or a large amount of something that's okay but not great?


My answer would have to be "it depends." In general, I'm for quality over quantity. But that can change - like if I'm absolutely *starving* and need/want/have to have food now nownow, I'd rather have a good quantity of something that's "okay," rather than a dainty little square-inch sized portion of even exquisite food.

And then on the other end of the spectrum there are the cases of things like video games, where I tend to drown in things that are quite good, because there are just too many really good or even great games out there, and I want them ALL grrrr! And only a fraction of the time do I end up actually playing a game to completion these days, even if it's one I enjoy immensely, because I just get distracted by another shiny. So I really should try to narrow down the focus on games even more, to the very very top of the heap... but I couldn't bear it! XD

(I'm glad auronsgirl does the interesting ones, because I'm too lazy to look them up otherwise. ;)
