I know, I know. I say I'll post on Mondays and Thursdays. But Lara's comment on my last post about authenticity and Heidi's post about writing her bio gave me an idea.
Let's play a game, shall we?
Here are the rules. Imagine you are an author and have to write the biography for your book. Write the most glowing bio you can about yourself. Then, if you are truly brave, write the opposite kind about the same aspects of your life.
Rules: 1) You can tweak and nudge the truth, but not totally fabricate 2) You can't say mean things about anyone else and don't beat up on yourself too badly. Keep it lighthearted.
Come on, all you lurkers! Join the fun. Be anonymous if you want, but do come and play.
Braden spends his life teaching, singing, directing, and writing. Known by his students and readers for his warm and loving style, he uses a unique combination of gentle encouragement and a keen sense of humor to motivate and inspire. A devoted gardener and teacher, he spends his time in and out of the classroom encouraging young things to grow and take root and to reach for the sky. He brings this gentle warmth to his writing, adding a keen eye for human foibles to a generous heart and an ear for natural dialogue.
Braden spends most of his time trying to give up Dr. Pepper, which is one of the great passions of his life. His office is a colossal mess and makes his boss twitch. He has received far more rejection letters than contracts for his writing and can often be found fighting a bad attitude, with varying degrees of effort, sometimes waving a white flag as vigorously as he can. He is an active member of his church, which prevents him from articulating the things he sometimes thinks about other drivers on the road.
