Do you ever get that feeling ...you know the one they've nicknamed the Green-Eyed Monster? Yeah that's right I'm talking about jealousy, my friends.
The other day I was browsing one of my favorite blogs and the author was posting about how she was on her next wip. That would make three that she’s completed in the time that I’ve finished a third of mine! **Cue the Jealousy** :\
She talks about how she spends all this time writing – goes away on writing vacations with her husband! **Cue more jealousy** And don’t get me wrong…I don’t hate her (well I do but not in that way). Mostly, I just wish I had that sort of opportunity to make my writing work.
I mean this is my dream job, right? But my real life intercedes constantly. (Not that I would give up my kiddos or hubby for anything – publication or not. The day job on the other hand….)
Each writer has their own path to take, though, in order to get to where they want to be. And mine is spent carving out whatever spare time I can amidst a heavily chaotic real life.
Do you guys ever feel this way?
