I’m not sure what I was feeling as I selected my top 3 this week. My emotions in the rainy, weird spring weather were a jumble. Maybe that is why I was drawn to Kayla Lord’s: “A Not-a-Love Letter to My Anxiety”
This post spoke to my very soul! As a fellow “anxious,” I totally relate. The self-doubt, the worry, the overwhelm, the tears. The struggle is real, my friends. And it isn’t pretty. But the more we write about it, the more healing we can spread. Story is my antidote to giving up.
Morag gets at another struggle that is real – sex writing in a not-so-sexy world. We sex writers are “normal” people. We are parents. We are spouses. We are employees. And all of that gets in the way of our ability to sex write. Some of these distractions are welcome, while others are not. But, ALL of them make the act of writing more difficult. Writing is a solitary activity, and while we need life to inspire our words, the tough job of sitting our asses in chairs to get the job done is impeded by trials, tribulations, and some very “wanted” distractions.
Now this is an odd choice, I know…since it is also an S.O.S.S. post. But, the advice provided is so utterly timely and useful, I could not help myself.
