This past weekend, I had the incredible privilege of attending the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Conference. The workshops were fantastic, the attendees even more so. But the lessons I came away with were more about life than craft:
1. As I hinted during my last post, I love My Little Pony (Semi-embarrassing thing #1). There. It’s out. *Covers face and speaks through hands* And I love The Last Airbender (the cartoon!) The Legend of Korra included. And H2O. And all frosting. Especially straight out of the can (but none of the light fluffy crap. That’s sugared air. It doesn’t count).
You might not want to be my friend because I like My Little Pony. That’s okay, I understand, because somewhere along the journey of my life, I was told liking these things wasn’t good. For a long time, I believed the lie and treasured my loves in secret. But we do the world a disservice when we hide part of ourselves.
I don’t need to hide the nuances that make me me.
