5 Ways to Be Feisty

5-ways-to-be-feisty

They told me to write feisty since in real life I’m feisty. I also have plenty of sass, so it’s kind of a double whammy. Oddly enough, it’s not as easy as it sounds, but here’s how I do it:

      1.  Don’t GAF. As in, Don’t Give A Fuck. I don’t give a fuck if you like my advice, my writing, or me. Deal with it. I’ll move on, write more, and forget about everything except what I want to say.
      2. Have an opinion. You don’t have to agree with me. I don’t have to agree with you. But I’ll say what I think, move on, write more, and forget about everything except what I want to say.
      3. Don’t take shit so seriously. It’s not curing cancer, for God’s sake. It’s just writing.Twitter And it’s just a blog. It’s not War and Peace, or Dante’s Inferno. It’s just writing. So I’ll move on, write more, and forget about everything except what I want to say.
      4. Don’t try to change things. I don’t need to change anyone. I’m just writing to try to give people a shot in the arm when they need it and help them break through blocks. Maybe they’ll enjoy reading them. Maybe they’ll get through their issues. Maybe not. Either way, I’ll move on, write more, and forget about everything except what I want to say.
      5. Have a cocktail and relax. Something about bourbon helps loosen up my thoughts. It turns the editor in me off and lets the words just roll out. And sure, there’s most likely going to be some curse words in there to drive my point home. But I’m having fun, so who cares? I’ll just move on, write more, and forget about everything except what I want to say.
