A Chance to Rant: about RULES
You have to see this video. This one’s for the rule breakers out on Planet Earth. (Just DON’T do this at home!)
RULES. Have you ever stopped to think about how many rules you’re expected to follow in a single day? In the morning there’s a rule about putting the milk away in the frig or scrapping your plate. There’s the rule about getting to class on time, keeping your cell phone off, and just skip the texting. You have to wait until you’re how old to get a driver’s license?—and then there are hundreds of rules of the road to follow. Games have rules, governments have tons of rules, and sometimes even your friends have their own set of rules. Tests have rules and rules have tests at every turn.
In GIRL IN THE ARENA, my character Lyn, has to live with the worst kind of rules. Some days, maybe you feel the same way.
If you could eliminate ONE rule that people expect you to follow, what would it be?
