I belong to a group of five writers.
We’re all roughly at the same level
and as our readerships grow,
we continue to be at equivalent levels.

Why?

Because we use the healthy competition
between us
to drive us to perform.
If one of us finishes writing a story,
it pushes the rest of us to finish our stories also.

Ashley Merryman,
co-author of
Top Dog,
shares
in the July/August’s CMA Magazine

“When accepting his recent Oscar,
Quentin Tarantino yelled out,
“I love the competition.”
That says it all.
Having others do great work
can spur you to do the same.
Competition also fuels innovation
because it puts firm parameters
and a deadline
around the creative process.”

Competition is a GOOD thing.
It drives us to perform.
Embrace competition.
