Writing envy or how competition might actually work for me

24 11 2012

So, gradually it occurs to me that my sweetie, newly ensconced in my den and the rest of my apartment…well, it turns out he is thinking of tossing himself into the writing game.
He’s already been writing for content mills and earning money- eeks! And now he has plans to write other things, romance, novels, all the areas I’ve been essentially puttering about in for years now.
Immediately upon this realization, I could feel my blood stirring with competitive corpuscles, all of them tumbling about in furious frenzy.
Dang it all. He can’t write before I do!!! He can’t be published before I am!!
The problem is, he actually writes well and has more ability to force himself to do things than I can.
So now my brain is ticking away, thinking of markets to send my wee efforts. I think this may actually be the push that I’ve needed.
Look at him – looking all writerly and ready to go… I suppose I could simply break his arm…(jk)
