I’ve been writing since the 3rd Grade, so I would hope that I’ve learned my craft/discipline. What I don’t appreciate is when people or other people claim to be “the best.” Especially in writing.
If you’re traveling somewhere do you want to be looking at a vast area of nothingness for long periods of time? Or do you want to see a landscape rich in color and terrain? It’s the same in writing.
What I call the curse of a writer, is really the weight of that metaphorical albatross, that psychological burden that feels like a curse.
We all learn from somebody in this marathon, so don’t waste your time comparing yourself to others.
