I used to have a Myspace page (don't judge, you know you had one too!) and one day I was thinking (as I always do), and a quote came to me. The quote was,
Someone once said, "well-behaved women rarely make history." Well, consider me something of a miscreant, then.
<--- definitely not a "well-behaved" evening ;)
I can't say I legitimately sat down and thought hard about this quote-turned-life-motto. I generally don't think very very hard about the majority of the things I write, and for this reason, I ascribe my writing, my penchant for vocabulary, all that to God. Because clearly, it can't be just me. Not at all.
That all said, it came to me because I came to the realization that I didn't want to be a "well-behaved" girl, one who bites her tongue, cooks dinner every night, kisses and never tells, etc. I don't think it was possible for me anyway... not for a writer who can't leave any stone unturned in her writing, and not for someone who drops the word fuck as easily as she drops the word albeit... and trust me, they both flow quite often :)
