The Real Sugar!


I must thank my fellow book blogging friend, Wallace at Unputdownables, for writing about this awesome lady over at her other writing gig, Book Riot.  In her recent post, Dear Sugar, Can't Wait to Meet You, I learned about this person, aptly named Sugar, who has been offering incredibly honest and helpful advice to individuals about a myriad of issues over at The Rumpus.  I read just two of her posts the other day and I was hooked.  The big thing with Sugar was that she was anonymous, but on Tuesday, she finally revealed her true identity.  HERE is the post detailing everything to do with her 'coming out.'  Oh, forgot to mention...her real name is Cheryl Strayed!

Here is one of her most awesome posts, in my opinion:

DEAR SUGAR, The Rumpus Advice Column #48: Write Like a Motherfucker

Believe me when I say, you're bound to find a post she has written that will speak to you on a very personal level.

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!

  1. I am going to print out the last few lines of that blog:

    So write, Elissa Bassist. Not like a girl. Not like a boy. Write like a motherfucker.

    Yours,
    Sugar

    I am going to substitute my name in place of Elissa Bassists, and then I'm going to write. Like a motherclucker (sorry, my mom just moved in with the Hubs and I, so it's hard to type the mothereffer word, although I seem to have no problem copying and pasting it.) :)
