Natalie Whipple wrote an excellent, brutally honest post Monday about dealing with jealousy. It crops up. We're all human. Except for the robots. You know who you are.
It made me think of this post by my rather awesome older sister Ellen (who should update her blog more regularly). You know you've written a good blog post when it still has your little sister thinking about it over a year later.
What it all boils down to is something that I say to the Pea far more often than he'd like: "You get what you get, and you don't pitch a fit."
And then, you keep writing.
If you haven't already, go enter my I'm Still a Cheapskate Giveaway!
Also, Nicole McLaughlin's hosting a fun giveaway over on her blog, and you could win a copy of Anna & The French Kiss. (I'm sincerely debating whether I should send you all over there because I describe my first kiss, in all its awkward glory, in 99 words for my *hopefully winning* entry.)
