Semi-Annual Moonshine - JUNE's Fun Internet Memes for YOU

I certainly hope you couldn't relate to my most recent blogpost about PLAPPing (Procrastinating Like a Phucking Pro) but if you did, you understand why The Monthly Moonshine has been more of a Semi-Annual Moonshine recently. Creating the Moonshine is the fun kind of writing, not the kind that sends me into a tailspin of self-doubt and misery, but I think you can see how “researching” Instagram and TikTok for all the funniest, wisest, most helpful snippets to share with you could possibly lead to me spinning off for six months at a time …

But have no fear! While spinning out and scurrying down myriad rabbit holes (“Ooh, look – shiny! OMG, it’s rhinestone shoelaces! -- that will totally make sense once you read the blogpost), I did manage to find you some great stuff from the interwebs:


Frodrick. He's real and ... HE. IS. FABULOUS.


Oh, hiyyyy...




This little fucker makes me SO happy 😍


POV: When you get called out for just doing you


I dare you not to melt ❤️


I fear this is my future ...


Just a Good Boy and his emotional support pumpkin


Remember that question I asked in the PLAPPing blogpost, (I’ll do anything to get you to read the fucking blogpost), that went something like,

“How am I supposed to know when I’m done editing a sentence or paragraph or story? Is it when I stop cringing or do I have to keep editing until I actually love it?”

Well, I asked New York Times bestselling author Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, the same question and being the kind and generous goddess that she is, she responded with this:

“I think the average writer would say edit yourself once, then read it out loud to a friend to see their reaction and then submit it to an agent who will edit it again. I end up rereading and editing a million times because I hate my own writing and then when it goes to my agent or editor, and they edit it again, it kills me because they always want me to delete something I worked on for a million years. So don't do what I do. Edit once. Send it to a few readers for honest opinions. Then move on. Trust your voice. :) “ -- Jenny Lawson

Okay, I’m willing to do that. My sister is on board to critique the shit out of anything I send her.

Any other Volunteer Readers?

Final Words of Wisdom

One last thought about procrastination and perfectionism from Mark Manson, author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck:

"Perfection is not some endpoint you achieve, but rather the process of improvement itself. No matter how much you improve yourself and your life, there will always be room for more growth and less suffering. There’s no final goal. The perfect self we all envision does not actually exist. As Gertrude Stein said, “There’s no there, there.” It never ends. What changes is your acceptance of your place in the process. I suck at this, but that’s OK. As long as I’m working on it, it’s OK.”

Keep working on it, my Loves.
