Once Upon an Uncharted Island

Confession - I'm a huge fan of the show LOST on ABC. So I was absolutely beside myself when Christina from Cutest Kid Ever and Uncharted Island asked if I'd be willing to a guest post about all the crazy parental relationships being revealed this season on the show.

I had so much to say, I didn't even know where to begin. But when I sat down to write the piece, I found myself totally paralyzed - I can write for this blog and not care if I'm incomprehensible, but writing for somebody else's blog was a whole different beast.

Anyway, I finally got it done after well over a week of procrastinating. You can read it here. I'm not sharing it with you because I think it's a particularly well-written article - it's really not. But I got my points across and I delivered the thing, despite an overwhelming desire to rewrite it to death and/or toss it in the toilet and go off the grid for a week. I'm sharing it with you because I'm proud of forcing myself out of my comfort zone and for doing something less than perfectly without regret or shame. That's no small feat.

Writing about Lost is intimidating anyway given the amount of information we know and don't know. I imagine a huge wall with 3x5 cards and yarn, diagramming out all of the relationships and stories. No one can hold it all in their head!
