To begin with, go read this post by rarasaur. Trust me, you won’t regret it.
Finished? Okay, then.
I loved the first line. After all, how can you not love a reference to Pride and Prejudice? It’s only one of the best books ever written. But if you read the rest of the post (and the rest of her blog), it’s amazing. It’s simultaneously powerful and empowering, and I want so badly to be able to write like that.
To make people feel things. In their gut.
To feel things myself. And not in the way that I normally feel things, which is superficial, like someone doing a white-glove check to see how dusty my mantle is. I want to feel things with every ounce of my soul, every fiber of my being.
I’m tired of being enveloped in bubble wrap.
But I don’t know how to get rid of it.
Fear is powerful. And I think it guides too much of my behavior.
Time to do something about that.
Time to get naked.
What about you? Do you feel things in your gut, or do things wash over you like waves upon sand? Do you blog naked?
