My Own “Girls Write Now”

As a tribute to Girls Write Now‘s publication today, I’ve written something in the style of the other essays in the book.  Something I’d like to talk about with my past self.  I wouldn’t call it advice, per se, because I’m not sure what advice I’d give.  But it did force me to think.  Thank you to Tin House for sharing this book with me, and for giving me the chance for this self-reflection.
