91. I didn't read the whole thread when I posted that.
I just know it's been jealousy when I've been on the receiving end of similar notes. That's not likely to happen here on DU because I mostly lurk and don't post much, except to cheer someone on occasionally as I did with Will just now. It's not likely to happen on my "home board" these days either--God knows I'm not writing well enough to inspire jealousy in anyone!

I can hardly bring myself to write at all, which is very unusual for me. I'm not sure if it's because I'm a little awestruck and intimidated by the quality of some of the posters here at DU, or because of the sheer amount of information I've been trying to absorb in a short time, or a little of both. But all day I've been wanting to write a letter to my senators and congresswoman and also to John Kerry--not a form letter but a real letter of my own--and I haven't been even been able to start it.

I have no problem admitting I feel a little bit jealous when it's obvious that someone else's mojo is working when mine isn't! I know what inspired writing looks like and also how it FEELS, in a visceral kind of way. It's the feeling that I miss the most.
