Awesome J.A. Konath Quote

I lifted this awesome quote from Digital Dame’s blog post because it’s too good not to share.

“You can’t ever compare yourself to any other writer. EVER. This isn’t like the business world, where certain positions have a salary range. You can make $100 a year, or $5,000,000 a year, with no discernible difference in your output or your quality. If you want to compare yourself to someone, compare yourself to yourself. Monitor your successes. Learn from your failures (and if you aren’t failing, you aren’t trying hard enough.)” ~ J.A. Konath

One thought on “Awesome J.A. Konath Quote

  1. I completely agree, and I’ve said it before, too, though not as eloquently as JA Konath over there.

    I think of it every time I find myself comparing my writing to that of my favorite author. “I could never write like her.” And I can’t… but SHE can’t write like ME either!
