So, I'm reading DASH AND LILY'S BOOK OF DARES by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan.
It's adorable (with the exception of a few F-bombs, which I admittedly dislike).
It got me thinking about dares. And truths. In the story, they share honest truths with each other and they also hand over some dares. I wouldn't dare do something like kiss a frog or stick my hand down a badger hole (my own dares--not those from the book--if you want to know what their dares are you'll have to read the book). Danger is not my middle name. But, would I dare to be honest with myself about what I would dare to do. With my writing, that is.
Would I dare to treat my writing seriously enough to write regularly?
Would I dare to give my characters the flaws they need so they can grow?
Would I dare to rewrite one of my manuscripts to make it stronger?
Would I dare to finish this blasted query?
Maybe. It's something I'm having to work on, that's for sure. And I don't use the term work lightly here.
How about you? Truth or dare?
