I wonder: will I ever be the kind of writer who has the courage to get this raw? Yes, the Bloggess is hysterical. For me, writers who elicit genuine laugh our loud moments are few and far between, and she’s one of them. But beyond that, she’s completely unafraid to expose her vulnerability.
Already, I have posts building up in drafts box that I’m too chicken to publish. My hope is that my bravery will grow in time. I’m like a child staring at a freezing cold swimming pool in May— scared to take the big plunge. Maybe if I just edge my way in, one body part at a time, I can find my comfort level. And with it, my voice.
But enough seriousness. Have you ever read my all-time favorite post by the Bloggess? It’s likely you have, considering that it went viral and received nearly 4,000 comments. It’s titled ‘And that’s why you should learn to pick your battles’, but it’s really about a giant metal chicken. Enjoy.
