Writers and jealousy

For some reason I can't link directly to the post by fellow Write Words member Nik Perring about jealousy so I've just given general blog linkage.
Anyway, visit his blog and have a wee read of his post about writers and jealousy. I'd like to put it better than he did, but I'm not sure I can.
We are all human, so it's not bad to feel a pang of the green eyed monster at another's success, but I think Nik makes a great point when he says that making it in the business is tough going anyway and anyone who gets anywhere deserves our respect.

Erm, just me again. I think I like your blog having stumbled across it from Nik's blog, via Lane's blog.

I've spotted jealous comments too, when a writer mentioned selling a story on her blog recently, someone commented "oh yeah, it's not really a well-known magazine is it, but, like, well-done" in a bitchy sort of way and I thought, blimey, why can't they just be pleased for her?

(It wasn't me, honest).
