Let me e'splain...
I mentioned the itchy binding thing, yeah? See... I think I was 4 when I gave up nightgowns (or any pajamas) because blankets pulled one way and pajamas another and it was just to much conflicting action in the darned bed. Far better to just deal with my skin that moved with me...
Of course I'd given up swimsuits two years earlier—have you WORN wet pants? Can you BLAME ME?
|"I like a little air around my privates!"|
But REALLY, this is more to to with really just liking some air around my privates. JK Rowling was channeling me when she wrote Archie, the character if Goblet of Fire so set against pants... Air. Water. Wind. It all FEELS GOOD on the skin! (But NOT through fabric)
As a teen I also strongly advocated that TAN fat looked better than PALE fat, so I was obliged to wear as little as possible all summer... And through college I traumatized first my dorm mates then my sorority by solidly REFUSING to sleep in anything. It's possible I considered it my duty to squash any prudishness they'd arrived at college with...
So I've been naked a long long time.
|Join the group hug?|
So while I would LOVE all of you to literally get naked with me... the Naked World Domination Tour could use you. What I really think you need to get on board for is being Naked in your writing. Give up the fear. Don't hide. Let it all hang out in as YOU of a way as you can. Your audience can only find you if you stop hiding behind those pesky mumus and tent dresses.
