Hey Heifers! How many things have you wanted to do in your life that you never did because you knew you'd be awful at it? For me it's theater. I've always thought it'd be fun to be part of a musical but in my head I've decided I would be awful at acting and therefore there's no point in trying. But today I'm telling you to ditch that mindset! Obviously there are limitations on what we can do based on our situations. We also sometimes assign these wants to a version of ourselves we'd love to be that we have decided is perfect but may not actually be so fun and great in the end. Today, however, I ask that you let at least one of these things happen and let it be bad. Awful. Crappy. Just do it and allow it to SUCK. This is kind of the motto for National Novel Writing Month, a challenge that happens every November asking people to write 50k words in the month of November. Since you have to write so much you can't get bogged down in making all your words sound pretty. Some of them are cringey and in my case make me question if I've ever even written an email, let alone a novel.
