Pretty Inside (well, sort of)

I’ve been working on a non-fiction book titled Pretty Inside. You know how you have a friend that truly needs a makeover from the inside? Someone who makes you want to scream, “For the love of MAC Lipglass, you have got to check yourself!”

Pretty Inside is my interpretation of a journey with girlfriends to the root of our muckiness in hopes of prettying up our attitudes. But, it’s not designed to judge, ridicule, or preach. A true girlfriend doesn't do that, but she WILL tell you, “Honey, seriously. Stop the foolishness and get it together.”

Well…

I discovered through writing it, I myself had to get it together. I originally thought this book would be my way of kicking up the kickstand and peddling wobbly into the writing sunset. It still is, but I also realized I had some de-mucking to do myself.

Sometimes you think you’re moving forward. But, are you really?

So, I looked in the mirror and asked:

“Are you riding forward or is the wind just blowing?”**

Do you know what the mirror said?

“I don’t know about all of that. But, honey? Get your ish together!”

So, girlfriend to girlfriend…thank you for the inspiration behind Pretty Inside and thanks for the kick in the tush.

**Man, I hope I didn’t steal that from somewhere
