Once upon a time, there was a man named Mr. Hottie…
As my friend Melissa would say, very much tongue in cheek, that’s how every fairytale starts. And you know that old adage about something old, something new? Well, next week on Truly Madly Sassy, I’ll be doing something a little different by publishing a three-part series. It’s a brand new thing for me, so I’ll be asking you, the reader, for some feedback on it. The original piece was in excess of 8 pages, so I really had no choice but to separate it. If you’ve read my blog before, you’ll remember Ben Leander and he’s notorious for the series format on his own blog, so I decided to take a page out of his book and try it!
The upcoming story about Mr. Hottie is one that is near and dear to my heart.
And I don’t know anybody who doesn’t relish a good love story! Now, whether it was a love triangle or not remains to be seen, but you know how sometimes you forget certain parts of your life? Like down to the most minute details? That’s what happened to me when I was writing it: I remembered the things I haven’t thought about in a long time and it made me laugh and cry, sometimes simultaneously! Nostalgia is such a mixed bag when it comes to sweetness and bitterness, isn’t it? Lessons are everywhere and the biggest one I’ve learned when it comes to Mr. Hottie and The Man Who Had My Heart is that sometimes, we look at the closed door so long that we miss the ones that are cracked open around us. Hindsight—hmmmm—it is indeed 20/20.
My hope is that you’ll not only enjoy the series but that it will spark something in you that will make you think back to those times in your life that you’ve forgotten about—the very ones that made your heart swell so much that it changed all those limiting beliefs that you have about love, about intimacy, and about yourself.
It goes without saying that my inbox is always open to you for feedback or anything else you’d like to share. Truly Madly Sassy would not be what it is without all of you—the readers. So let me know what you think of the series format via the contact form on the blog or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you like it, I’ll do more of it; if not, it will have been a good experiment and a really touching walk down memory lane. Much gratitude to those of you who are always willing to walk that path with me!
