Alter Ego | For the Promptless

My lovely dino sister Rarasaur hosts Prompts for the Promptless every week and it’s such a clever thing she does. This week, I am finally going to get off the sidelines and actually participate.

I love that this week is about alter egos because that’s exactly what my blog is about.

Monday through Sunday, for the last 29 and a half years I have been polite to everyone (eh … just about.) My mom’s side of the family is British and my dad’s side is from the South. I have so much politeness pouring out of so many different orifices that it would make Paula Deen and Maggie Smith want to rub a stick of butter all over their knickers. I have used appropriate language when in public. I have talked about suitable topics when socializes with others. I have been a decent human being.

But sometimes I just want to RAWR.


Sometimes I want to say whatever is on my mind.

Want this on your blog? It’s yours, my dear.

Sometimes I want to over-indulge.

And sometimes I want to drop an F-bomb or two.

Honor our fallen brethren and spread the word! #HumanLifeDay

Mostly, though, I want to encourage others to embrace their RAWResomeness. That’s why I’m on a mission to find the funniest and smartest literature from kickass women (and men) who are helping to redefine stereotypes. Who make us think about the same shit in a different way.

(Well, I’m also having fun drawing dinosaur cartoons on Sumo Paint. Can you tell?)


And that is why I created my alter ego, Julie Chicklitasaurus, so that I can applaud those amazing people.

Cheers to all of you!

{What makes you RAWR?}


About julieschicklit

My book blog is dedicated to finding books, stories & ideas that redefine women's literature to be something smarter & funnier. More RAWResome lit for ladies. I am remaining some-what anonymous because I have a day job. My Man-Beast and I are soon going to live abroad in China, so that's why I'm a reblog-aholic.


  1. Well done. I love the graphics.

  2. “I have so much politeness pouring out of so many different orifices that it would make Paula Deen and Maggie Smith want to rub a stick of butter all over their knickers” . Love it! (The image, not rubbing butter all over my knickers).

  3. The art work is too cute. I loved it. I think we all need to go somewhere and vent once a week or find a few friends and go RAWr.

  4. Good stuff! I love the drawings.

    What makes me Rawr? Good blogs. Good books. Good damn writing.

  10. Great post! It’s certainly easier to say what’s on our minds online, and we definitely need to encourage the production and dissemination of literature that challenges stereotypes.
