She's the sassy, strong, infinitely badass superheroine that lives inside and guides the variety of moral, personal, social, and business decisions that come this way every day. She's tough. No nonsense. She rocks a big tool belt. She says out loud what a lot of people are thinking anyways, and mostly finds tactful ways to do it. She's an agent of change, a Sister Provocateur.
So, our heroine recently found herself in an awkward conversation across the lunch table from a family member. "Well...I don't have a problem with this blog thing. But what if Aunt Shirleen sees this?!"
First of all...You may not have a problem with it, but you're clearly concerned about what Aunt Shirleen thinks, and the fact that you mentioned it kind of translates into a secondhand problem. Second of all, if any of my relatives should stumble across this and it makes you uncomfortable, it's your job to STOP reading it NOW. Change the fucking channel! I have the sneaking suspicion, confirmed by mass email links sent out to the entire family, that Aunt Shirleen has spent more time contentedly googling famous rose gardens worldwide since the rise of the internet in her life.
Many artists who create fantastically stimulating media only do so because they have been able to effectively stop giving a fuck about what anybody else thinks or says about their work and develop the ability to only tune in to the subtle voice of the artistic process. It's about the art, not the audience. Some will love it, some will hate it, such as it is.
Keeping my "real" name off the Captain Sex Kitten site was a slight veil to separate my "professional" writing (media clippings that Aunt Shirleen can proudly collect in a scrapbook) from the casual gal-pal, f-bomb-laden chat you see here - but really, at this point in my life, most people who hire me for writing jobs do so because I'm actually really good at what I do and my work speaks for itself.
Exquisite communication - it's something I relish and revel in. Understanding others, and facilitating understanding between people in this world makes me glow. It's why I'm here. It's what makes me a great writer, a wonderful friend, a passionate, sensitive lover. It's what makes my world go round.
KNOWING THYSELF is like, a lifelong project. Change is the only certainty in life. You can be somebody new each day you wake up, make new choices, lean in the direction of your purpose... but the essence of who you are, your own inner "Captain Sex Kitten" remains. Every single one of us can benefit from asking ourselves on a regular basis "Who the fuck AM I?!" and digging in until you find the fabulousity.
So....WHO the fuck is Captain Sex Kitten?!
I'll take you back to the beginning of this blog for the basics:
And here is a recent interview (using my REAL name and all) with my besty, the beloved Bourbonista:
Big Weird Scars....in all the right places.
The story isn't finished. It's still being written. It doesn't end until I do, folks!
Thank you all again for so many kind words of support and encouragement. If you keep reading, I'll keep writing. Love.
As always, feel free to email me (or hire me to write or sparkle up your media for you) at CaptainSexKitten@gmail.com. I enjoy hearing from you all. <3
