Your bio … love it or hate it?

I think we writers can make up junk right and left but when it comes to writing 100 words about ourselves, we freeze like those deer in headlights. Yep … what in the world should I say about … me? Seriously? You’re asking me to say something witty, insightful? Simple? Smart?

How in the world does one do that?

I have no idea.

I’m actually asking. πŸ™‚

Okay, not totally.

I wrote my bio ages ago.

Then I rewrote it.

Then I rewrote it again.

After like 18 months and several more rewrites, I actually kinda like mine.


Because it really does reflect my ridiculous nature, how I write and … well … me.

Read this:

I’m a romantic at heart, a southern transplant with a bit of the accent but not a whole bunch and am married to my high school sweetheart. Together we’ve produced three native North Carolinians — two of whom share the same DNA. I have an MBA from NCSU (go Wolfpack!) and an undergraduate degree in Applied Mathematics … yet I must still use a calculator to add two numbers.

Yes. That’s me in that proverbial nutshell. πŸ™‚

As an author though, I do foresee a time where I need to enhance said bio and create a longer one. I shiver at the thought … just the idea makes me want to run into a dark corner and hide.

So for now, I keep to the short one and leave it at that. I do read it every so often and ponder. Sometimes, I tweak it. For at least 6 months though … those few words have been used and reused, pretty much as is.

I like it.

I’m happy with it.

It’s me.

Peace. πŸ™‚

How about you? What do you write about yourself? Share!
