I can’t remember where exactly I read this article about jealousy but the writer felt that being jealous of another writer is a good thing.
Jealousy comes with the desire to be as good as someone else. It motivates you to work harder because you don’t want to be outshined. It can knock you out of a slum and defeat writers block.
The idea behind this technique is to channel jealousy in a positive way. Use it to work harder, smarter and faster.
Generally, I’m not the kind of person to get jealous but it does happen from time to time. Perhaps this little trick could work for me in the future. Maybe it could work for you.
Anyway, I hope you find some value in this little post.
I’m currently taking a short break after writing a 1000+ words. Today is another tough day because I could only fall asleep at 3am last night and was awake by 9. Eh! I just want my bed 😦 lol
The grind never stops until we destroy those goals, right? I just need to hit another 1000 words and then I’m off to bed.
Have sweet dreams…and use it for a story if you can 😉
