xoJane is going to publish another essay of mine. I’m super nervous and excited. It’s about an experience most wouldn’t admit. But I write essays about deeply personal topics because I write about my experience of living.
Life can be messy.
I had ups and downs and grew as a person because of them.
My fiction is the same. I write about messy families. I write about characters making mistakes that make me mad. I write about magical things and uncomfortable things. I write about love and all the twisted ways people bend themselves to be loved.
I’m thankful for my family. Despite shaking their heads at the things I share (really Holly, you’re going to admit that?) they support my writing.
When I’m not writing essays or newspaper articles, I’m hard at work querying my Young Adult manuscript. The title is DEAR DEAD DRUNK GIRL.
I hope you’ll come along this writing journey with me. I hope you feel less alone when you read some of my stories. I hope you remember to be kind to yourself and try to be nicer to others around you. You never know what’s going on behind their mask.
