The letter J stands for JEALOUSY.

*head desk*

Really? Should I admit this to the blog-o-sphere? Say it outloud? Type it for the whole world to see?

I am jealous.

I am jealous of the writers who get it right on their first draft, their first query, their first deal, their first book, their first movie, their first diet, their first car, their first dental exam, their first lottery ticket, their first everything.

But then ... people probably look at me and think, "WOW! I'm so jealous of HER! She has a perfect husband, perfect children, a perfect dog, a perfect marriage, a perfect house, a perfect personality. She has it all!"


Okay. I feel so much better now.

Tomorrow, maybe I'll post on kindness. Maybe.

Tell the truth ... are you jealous of anything?


  1. Ha ha, jealous that I did not think of this word today as it seems so popular :)

  2. I think it's only human to be jealous of someone every once in a while. But hopefully it's just for a minute or two. ;-)

    I'm jealous of anyone who can finish a triathlon! I'd like to but my legs have other ideas...
