Personal Statements Suck

It’s funny. You’d think writers would be great at talking about ourselves. And you know what, we pretty much are. But … well, I can’t speak for all writers but for me, writing out a personal statement or a biography is just awful. Part of it comes from the idea that all things written should be full of passion and vibrancy and starting with “Hi, my name is Shauna …” always makes me feel like I’m selling something that isn’t as interesting as myself. Of course, right now I have a ton of stuff to work through and nothing to show because I’m staring at this personal statement and really, I want to kill my computer. 

Can I use this as my personal statement? 

This has been your Sunday morning writing rant, brought to you by my second cup of coffee and the protein drink I just finished.
