Disclaimer: Skinny writers, easy on the hate mail and harsh words – remember that you rock yoga pants, will probably live longer, and if you are good looking, you have it all. Peace.
Curvy writers, unite! There are many words to describe us, and sincerely, we don’t like any of them. But let’s embrace our rolls and remember there’s a reason why God and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups made us this way. And celebrate it – with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, of course.Here are five reasons curvy women make great writers:
1- Pressure – We understand pressure and can handle tight…deadlines. Only someone who, inside a Macy’s fitting room, has pushed her love handles into a MiracleSuit swimsuit or wears one-size-too-small Spanx to a cousin’s wedding knows what I’m talking about.
2- Conflict – You want conflict? We’ll give you conflict. To be yourself in Western society and be happy with your figure can be a conflict in itself. Some people don’t understand it. Others envy it. Or sometimes you are completely uncomfortable with your curvy writer status yourself. You try to tip the scale a bit, bargaining with it. Oh! The pain, the guilt, the possibilities. You have conflict in every single inch, and since you have more inches than a skinny writer does, you obviously are packed with more conflict.
3- Time management – When skinny writers are busy working out, cycling, running, swimming and all that nonsense, we can use that time to write.
4-Creativity – We are great at creating excuses. Some sample expressions we know and love: “This dress makes my ass look like a planet,” “It’s the Pill,” “It’s my PCOS medicine,” “I’m PMSing,” “I’m pregnant,” “I just had a terrible breakup/horrible argument with my boss,” “I had bag of chips within my reach.” We always look for a great way to explain why we are the way we are.
There you go! Let’s celebrate ourselves, and we’ll chat again about that reality show.
Until next time, take care! ;)
