Hello, I'm Chicken. I'm an insecure writer.
Oh, I do fine in a casual setting. I write in a conversational tone that some people seem to enjoy. I'm good at keeping things light and breezy. I'm a literary tropical oasis.
Welcome to my blog, would you like a frozen beverage?
When a more somber tone is required, however, I falter. Without humor to fall back on, I start to overthink every comma and hyphen. I agonize over word choice. I am almost never happy with the final result. Maybe you can't tell, but I'm doing it now. I've looked up four words in the last five minutes. I'm freaking out because there's a red line under overthink. We all know what red lines mean. They mean you can't spell worth a tinker's damn. I'm almost sure it is overthink. Isn't it? Excuse me while I hyperventilate.
I resolve to become a more competent writer this year. I've purchased a copy of AP Stylebook and I might even open it. On a side note, I think AP Stylebook might be trending as they now sell sexy AP Style t-shirts. I might order one of those, too.
I found this quiz site online. If you are insecure like me you might benefit from testing your knowledge. There are 18 quizzes based on the AP Stylebook. How will you do? Are you unbeatable?
