UNFINISHED. Why You Should Be. Why It Matters.

So here’s how this works, and you can probably relate… I get these brilliant ideas for a story, or a story idea — even a tidbit of juiciness–sparks of creativity—glimpses of genius—and I race to capture them.  Before they race away into the vast recesses of my grey matter.

So I have probably oh, I don’t know, 27 posts ‘pending’.  27 drafts. Works in ‘progress’.

This might bother a sane mind.

It would bother my insane mind if IDIDN’T have a bunch of inspiration to work with.  Cuz, Baby, you gotta strike while the iron is hot, the sparks are flying, guns are blazin’….  and ya gotta fit it in somewhere between the phone calls, the emails, the kids throwing toys across the room, and pouring yourself another glass a wine.

One of those juicy tidbits of mine was called, “Unfinished.”

By: Maria Luce
See, here’s how it happens. She thought she could do it. And do it ALL.But then when she tried to fly and:

SUPERWOMAN GOT HER CAPE WRAPPED AROUND HER NECK.

Time to use your vast array of SUPER-POWERS and EMPOWER YOURSELF.

How many times do you find yourself slipping into the dreaded “I-have-to-be-Superwoman” thinking?  Must do it all, must be perfect, and must look good doing it.  — Oh!  And smile… Yes, THAT thinking.  Ever find yourself there?

Yea, don’t.

That cape of yours you think is so darn cute and – not to mention – you look incredible HOT and SEXY in — no, it’s actually like 4 sizes too small, is SO antiquated and idiotic – it’s reminiscent of the corset… and remember, women PASSED OUT and nearly died from those whale-bones-disguised-as-fashion.

Same thing with the Superwoman cape.  Screw the cape, I say.

The REAL Superwoman gets help!  No, not mental help. (Though, some superheroes have been seen slipping into the nearest padded room with the cape magically transformed into a straightjacket.)

The REAL SUPERWOMEN have MIGHTY POWERS:  here it is…..  ready?
