Am I Jealous?

I really don't sense that in myself, but we are always the last to notice these things in ourselves, right? Specks and Logs.

A writer friend of mine, through a serendipitous series of events, has made contact with an agent who is preparing to offer her a contract of some kind next month. I am worried for her, because I don't know the agent, his experience is more in sports than literary representation, and . . . . {here's the hard one to say} . . . . I don't think her work is ready for publication.

I mean, my work is closer to being ready, right? So shouldn't I have an agent first?

I don't think I'm totally jealous . . . maybe just MOSTLY jealous . . .
