I’m trying to think of interesting things to post about. It’s Lent here in my little Christian world which is a time for us Christians to think Christiany thoughts. As a somewhat marginal on-again, off-again Catholic I was somewhat thrown off my already shaky tread by being asked (by a completely reputable client I write for)….
if I I have ever written any “adult” materials, because apparently (50 Shades of Grey anyone?) this is becoming a “thing” now. I sort of remember (in a shocked daze) staring at this survey e-mail and thinking … should I hit delete? Should I give my honest answers? What would be the moral thing to do here (after all this is honest work)? I’m still wondering if I did the right thing.
Speaking of being shaken off my tread there was this ultra-friendly guy at the gym today saying hi to everyone, including me – and for a moment I was like huh, what? And then I was like oh sorry (honestly sorry) didn’t mean to be rude, just not used to having people shout HI at me while I’m on the treadmill. Thennn, when it came time for me to leave I saw that he was in the zone and decided not to say goodbye (what is the proper social behavior in this circumstance?), because that would have been weird. Right? I’m not just going crazy here. Sometimes…I wonder.
Does anyone else ever have these moments where you pause and think – what on earth am I doing here? Maybe it’s just me. I do, occasionally, overthink things – especially when it gives me an excuse to avoid work. Which, yeah…. Next, time to check out all the important news items of the day – like who was wearing what at the Oscars.

I think that if it fits into a story, write it. It’s the feeling of freedom that comes from capturing as much of a moment as possible that gives our readers their thrill. Trust me it won’t come to you if you’re not comfortable. Your mind has already worked out what needs to be written down.
Try not to over think being friendly. There aren’t always strings attached. 🙂

Thanks Anna. That’s really good advice.
