Two quotes from her blog entry to highlight and emphasize:
". . . there's is a problem when you become overly concerned with(and angry about)the success of others. This is a warning sign that you are headed down a slippery slope into paralysing bitterness."
and her conclusion:
"When I say get to work, I am not telling you to pick up a hammer and start breaking rocks. When I say get to work, I'm saying get back to you. Get back to where you started from when you said you wanted to be a writer, when you didn't know anything about the business."(emphasis added)
Thank you Ms. Jones for so eloquently stating what I believe, and also what I need to be reminded of now and again.
