I’m a chicken.

I mean that not as an insult to actual chickens, but rather to say I am generally too scared to do a lot of things I want to do. This is largely in part because I feel I answer to people other than myself (spouse, parents, extended family, etc.), many of whom would disapprove of the decisions I’d make. I want to be the best version of myself, but I also don’t want to be a disappointment to those I love.

As a result, I bottle up a lot of my personality, and envy people with the freedom and daring to be wholly themselves without a care for what others think. It sounds more tragic than it really is, but I don’t think I’m alone in this type of behavior.

For this next week, the prompt is going to be an excuse to live vicariously through a fictional character 🙂

I’ll be interested to see what comes of this. I have a number of ideas to choose from, but a precious few come to mind first.

Can’t wait to see the results next week! Happy writing!

Love, Junebug
