  1. This is a beautiful quote, and I wish more writers followed it (including myself). Somedays I compare my writing to other writers online and think, “Why do I have to suck so badly?” =( I know I shouldn’t be thinking that way.

    • I think most writers feel that way. I get that way a lot but try to steer my thoughts on a more positive note. We never know what goes on in that writer’s mind whom we become envious of, for example. They could be going through their own doubts as well, thinking their writing is no good even when it is.
