ups and downs

The upside of collecting lots of new writerly friends on LJ is community and the opportunity to learn from people who are doing what I want to do.

The downside is the occasional bout of angst where my labored projects read like ashes and dust compared to even the most on-the-fly posts people have made.

I know (I tell myself I know) that it's partly a lack of perspective on my part - other's new and fresh prose compared with something I've been banging on since Gondwanaland decided to sue for irreconcilable differences. Another part of it is stress bleed-over from getting ready to move.

So to put a positive spin on it, I've really been enjoying what people on my friends list have been writing and sharing of late.
