Beating the Green-eyed Bastard!
We've all been there. Call it jealousy or if you want to make yourself look less petty call it envy, either way, you want what you don't have. My favorite part is the "Jealous Much?" points of jealousy he makes in the beginning. Oh man, I've coveted a thing or two on that list. We all take our own path, someday people might look at me with that same envious desire. Check out a few other posts by Skinny Artist. I like how his head thinks.

We you think the road ahead it too far to reach, turn back and look at how far you have come. Taking stock of your writing journey is the best way to do that. Amy Nichols reminds us.
