It's first Wednesday and you know what that means! Insecure Writer's Support Network!!! w00t w00t!
Seems strange, doesn't it? That someone who runs around naked, virtually or otherwise is insecure. I mean I am a girl with a policy reading: TMI is par for the course. I am a more is more gal, where over-sharing is the topic and less is more when the topic is attire.
|I mean seriously... Naked is FUNNY!|
I know. Deep, right? And honestly, when I was really MOST concerned about being laughed at, I was more a 'keep your mouth shut and maybe nobody will notice you don't know what's going on' girl. I was socially inept and kept quiet to hide it.
Now I'm socially inept and take my clothes off to hide it.
Are you spotting a pattern here? Polar extremes to hide the same thing. That is sort of me in a nut shell. (in the middle I tried a 'get so smart nobody will notice you're inept', but that only takes you so far if you are only so smart)
But now we come to my CURRENT insecurity.
On my BLOG if you laugh at me that is mostly by design. Ninety percent of the time, even on a somewhat serious topic, I put some goof into the presentation (you know... in case you laugh at me...)
And the cozy mysteries have intentional humor to them. If somebody says to me after reading one “you're a riot!” that's a compliment.
|Vaccine killing the country: NOT funny.|
So NOW if you laugh at me, I'm naked. How's that for irony?
What makes YOU feel figuratively naked? And how do you hide it? Or do you?
Don't forget to visit the other insecure writers today, too!
