Update: Congrats to JanD, who was randomly selected to win a $5 Amazon Gift Card from me!
I have a confession to make: you know those painful scenes in a novel, where one of the characters inadvertently (or even on purpose) breaks the other’s heart? I love writing those. I know, I know, it’s awful of me, but I enjoy the drama, the tension, the angst. At least on the page.
In real life, it’s not half so much fun. We all remember the first time we got our heart broken. For me, it was in sixth grade. I was completely in love with the cute, slightly stocky boy with the dark hair and eyes. He was so sweet and easy to talk to, and we loved hanging out on the playground. Clearly, we were meant to be together!
Then came the day. The day he asked a girl to “go with him” (which when you’re eleven basically means sitting together at lunch, but whatever)…and she wasn’t me.
Oh the drama! The angst! I was crushed–we were supposed to have a love for the ages, darn it, and instead he chose some other girl?! I went home and drew pictures of broken hearts all over my notebook, because clearly such deep despair could only be expressed through art. I might have written an emo poem while I was at it. Then I made the mistake of telling my mother, who rolled her eyes and told me I’d get over it. Thanks for the support, mom.
