Jumping in a Puddle

Today's post is brought to you by the Letter J.

Welcome back!

I don't know how many began school in the late 80s/early 90s, but when I was in the first grade, we had a lot of sing-alongs. One was about Sipping Chicken Soup With Rice. The other that I still remember was Jumping in a Puddle.

Jumping in a puddle, getting all wet
Why don't you give it a try?
Jumping in a puddle, getting all wet
Bet you're wondering why I wanna be
Jumping in a puddle, getting all wet
(something that ends in a long yyyy)
Jumping in a puddle, jumping in a puddle
When it rains in the sky

And it goes on. lol

Jumping into puddles is something I don't really do anymore (don't like that wet feet feeling), but jumping is one of the luxuries of childhood. Jumping into puddles, jumping into a pool (oh my God, I want to do that right now; this is pool weather!), jumping up and down on a trampoline. Who didn't love that scene in Big?

For writers, jump into the unknown! Put yourself out there! If writing is something you want to do for more than a hobby, you have to jump. Take that big leap of faith, and just DO IT! There's nothing worse than that "What if I had..." feeling. If you get rejected, you got rejected. Dust yourself off and jump again! Writing as adults, we can still hold onto our childhood by taking that big jump. It will be as liberating as it is scary, but you can do it. :)
