Austin Kleon quotes Alan Moore on inspiration for writers.

“If you are inspired by a good book, there’s always the danger of plagiarism, of doing something that is too much like that good book. Whereas, a genuinely helpful reaction to a piece of work that you’re reading is, ‘Jesus Christ, I could write this shit!’”

I’ve heard versions of this sentiment many times, and I subscribe to the notion. I certainly enjoy lots of bad media.
