WAIT! Don't click away. This isn't an loving post for Earth Day. Instead I wanted to talk about jealousy and writers. Do writers suffer from more jealousy than other professions? I've never seen a doctor smear another over the way he ends his stitches. But get a group of writers together and toss out the name Dan Brown, and look out!
I, myself, being perfect and all, have never badmouth a fellow writer.
How I wish that was true. I have done my fair share of sneering at Twilight, dismissing Amanda Hocking books without ever reading one, and wishing herpes on a certain member of one of my writers groups. Oh you know who you are! I will get you! Just watch your back, you worthless hack!
Oops. My point is, writers need to overcome this ugly green monster. Or else it will destroy us. Put that negative energy to use. Stop obsessing. Easy enough, right?
But from now on I will do my damnest not to talk shit about my fellow writer. If you catch me doing so, smack me. Really. Right upside the head.
Oh, and Happy Earth Day...
Doesn't the Earth look fat in that grass? Did you see the way she roots those trees? Slut....
