Jon, that Natalie Whipple blog spoke to me. I thought I was the only one that (shamefully, secretly) gritted their teeth when I hear about the successes of others. :)

Lol, the way I see it, that emotional kick in the gut you get from hearing about someone else's success is nature's way of telling you your dream's still alive ;)

Jon, I don't want to jinx you or anything, but you have to be one of the most positive people I see in writing. Some people get lemons and turn it into lemonade, you get potato peels and turn it into 80 proof vodka.

Thanks for all of your links and posts!
