I’ve always wanted to enter something like this, but I’m not sure any of my 2009 posts are good enough to send in. I haven’t been so much with the storytelling this year–more the quickie anecdote. Which is my favorite kind of blogging, but not so good for an anthology.
Here are a few I’m considering:
Unfair — in which the boot guy laments a kiss.
In Which I Suck At My Job — in which I suck at my job.
Cloth Diaper Redux — this one may not qualify as it is not really a narrative.
Splainy — learning how to negotiate with a three-year-old terrorist.
Memo to the President — a letter to Obama offering him the tactical use of my screaming banshee in order to end the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and anywhere else that the enemy has eardrums.
A Drawer of One’s Own — a post about going from being a girlfriend without a drawer to being a family where everyone has a drawer. I am terribly proud of this post title, in particular.
Any thoughts? I’m really not sure any of these are good enough to submit, so I definitely want input. And feel free to suggest posts not listed here, if you like. Just keep in mind that I am fairly certain any photographs or links would not be included in the anthology so a post that relies on imagery or clicks won’t work. This post, for instance, is one of my favorites, but I’m not sure it works as a stand-alone. Help!
