Inner Mean Girls, or, Better Late Than Never

Want to be inspired? There’s a telesummit going on that is free, and even though it’s been going on for a few days, it’s not too late to register and get in on the calls. You can listen to audio replays for the next several days, too!

It’s the Inspiring Women Summit!

One of the best topics I’ve heard thus far comes from Amy Ahlers and Christine Arylo, who discuss the “Inner Mean Girl Reform School.” While they left me chuckling, it’s a serious subject for most of my gal pals, who will beat themselves up over the most trivial thing. It hurts to hear beautiful, smart, accomplished women call themselves losers, ugly, worthless, and more.

For me, the inner mean girl has been chatting away in my ear about my blog and my writing in general. She’s gotten ever more creative, purring into my ear about my lack of audience for The Foreign Language of Friends and the upcoming Blood and Loam, and wouldn’t life be easier if I found something else to do? But then recently I met a fellow writer, a local woman. I had bought her book and peppered her with lots of questions. One of them was, “Are you working on something new?”

“Of course,” she said evenly. “I’m a writer, and that’s what writers do.”

Oh, yeah, that.

So I’m going to have a little chat with my “Inner Mean Girl,” using some of the suggestions that Ahlers and Arylo provide. Then I plan to check out some of the other inspiring women on this telesummit! It’s not too late to get in on the action!

Have a great weekend. See you next week!
