On Jealousy

E.L. James - peoplewhowrite

The comments on The Toast piece sparked some snark about E.L. James

There’s a funny piece on The Toast called “The Top Ten Writers Whose Success You’ll Resent This Year.” Among the hate-approved list are “His Fucking Dad Has Written Four Bestsellers, He Was Probably Born With An Agent”, “The Woman With The World’s Last Tumblr-To-Book-Deal” and “The Literary Short Story Author Who Pretended He Had Never Met You Before Once At A Party Even Though You Absolutely Did”. My favorite of the list is “Everyone, everyone”. Because, really, when I’m hating on an author, it’s because I feel I should be in their spot. The moral: don’t hate, create.
