I have to be honest and confess to a little writing jealousy today. Not much, just an Amazon book recommendation which made me think “this should be me” which of course is totally unlikely, because the writer in question is good, established and has likely worked harder then I ever worked so far.
Nevermind, whenever I see a paranormal romance with a touch of magic, I get a little twinge of envy. And regret.
What to go with this writing jealousy?
So what do I do with that? I often get down on myself and take a break from the writing – oh big mistake! What I should work on is do what I did today, turn that negative energy into fuel to get to my white page and work, work work!
90 minutes today, squeezed between the kids and the meals and the cleaning.
What I learned today:
When I work on my story, the writing jealousy goes away and is replaced by hope! The hope that maybe, if I persist, work hard, and stay positive, that could be a little bit me one day.
Something to work on…
