Bready, Bready, Bready, And Writing

When baking, my sister likes to say, “bready, bready, bready.” It’s contagious. When making this bready thingy, time is an absolutely critical component—after kneading, the bread must be allowed to sit before going to the oven. I still remember the first bread we baked: it went straight to the oven immediately after kneading, and it ended up super stiff and dry. (I still remember the bread’s texture, blegh!)

Like bread, a piece of writing must be given the amount of time and attention it requires. If it’s rushed or forced, it’ll feel half-baked.

(The pun is so good. I can’t stop smiling.)
