Today I was going to post a draft of my new article about the Model Community Project (aka “those photos I posted yesterday“). I’m planning to submit a shortened, tightened-up piece to some large websites in hopes of increasing the project’s reach, and I’m soliciting feedback from y’all on the format, content, etc. (It’s hard to fit everything I want to say into 700 words!)
But then I realized that no one wants to play editor on a beautiful fall Friday.
And besides, I’m only about 75% of the way through writing the draft, and this is my current mental state after a completely frazzling (but wonderful) week:
And besides-besides, in 15 minutes I am headed here, to enter a much improved state of mind:
Yep, that’s right! I’m gonna hang out with “wild” ponies all weekend! (Last time I camped near these guys, one of them snuffled warm horse breath down my neck as I boiled water for tea.)
So, I will be saving my authorly aspirations for another week, and meanwhile I have an important announcement to make!
Next week, five guest bloggers will be visiting Tip of My Tongue to wag their tongues about body image as it plays a part in their lives.
On Monday, we’ll welcome Kim from Building A Life Of Hope, who will discuss how your relationship with your body and diet shifts as you age.
Tuesday will see a visit from Ken, host of The Weltschmerz Collection, who will bring us a man’s perspective on media-driven insecurity.
Samantha from S.Owens Writes will be by on Wednesday to give us her take on how women are portrayed in the video/online gaming world.
Thursday will bring us Emily from The Waiting, who will grace us with a post on how motherhood made her prouder of her body than she’s ever been.
And on Friday, we’ll have Liz from Big Body Beautiful, sharing some ways we can love the shit out of ourselves just as we are.
Stay tuned! Assuming I haven’t ridden a fuzzy pony into the Virginia sunset, I’ll see you all on Monday.
