What if a pen were magical, equipped with its story to write soon as it hit the page? But maybe each of us is a magical pen, with stories no one else can tell. The Story Studio instructor said, "No one can write your stories but you"--now in a eureka moment I realize--there's the antidote to jealousy I've been seeking. No matter how great the writer-- J.K. Rowlings, Joyce Carol Oates--no one can tell my stories but me. It's my job to write as best I can, being true to myself and the story. Envy is silly.
