We can all be really critical of our own work. Writing something of your own can be daunting because you think you can never write as well as some of the other people out there. If you don't know where to start or how to go about it, it can even be frustrating not being able to express yourself the way you intend. Like a 2 year old throwing a crying fit because they can't communicate why they're mad.
Then you finally stumble across a piece of published work that uses the same word 5 times in one paragraph (no, not for dramatic affect either), begins an argument only to quickly abandon it and sprinkles difficult out of context words like acquiesce or quodlibetical to really jazz things up. And you think to yourself, maybe, I too could write.
