Wish there were an easier way :')
Thanks for reading. Connie on Ko-fi
[3-panel borderless comic of a cartoon girl with a bun, cracking open a red heart like an egg. Panel 1: Wearing an apron, the girl cracks a heart on the edge of a mixing bowl. Panel 2: She plops the contents into bowl, yolk and all. There's a displeased face on the pink yolk and it says, "ow." Panel 3: She whisks the egg in with the contents of the bowl, as a scrunched face says, "agh! WHY do you do this??" Caption says, "In order to get any writing done, I have to crack open my own heart and whisk it up until it's just the right consistency of truth." Heading: "Wish there were an easier way." Cartoon titled "Eggshell Heart." Original webcomic illustration by Connie Sun, cartoonconnie, 2022.]
Do you add milk?
Memoir? Autobiographical novel? If this cartoon is any indication, we’ll be getting a deep dive into your life and emotions. I can’t wait! Hope an autographed version will be available!
So much truth in such a small space. Even when I'm proofreading something someone else wrote, I have to use my heart. Can't let stuff just slide without the heart getting on my case. Which is a good thing, but painful.
As someone who loves to write and loves to bake, this message makes so much sense, to me!
