This week, my essay "Do Nothing Unless It Feeds You" was published by Little Fiction | Big Truths, and so far, the response has been truly overwhelming. It's about fearing food and hiding in work and learning to cook and the root of migraines and interrupted grief and abandoning painting and who ignores our needs in service of their own and who sees us when we don't want to be seen. So many people have already reached out to say they see themselves in it, which is the greatest compliment for something that was so scary to draft, let alone put out into the world.
The editors made me a teaser trailer for the essay, so if you don't have time for a long read at the moment, here's a snippet to whet your appetite.
And one more happy announcement: I'm proud to say I'm now represented by Danielle Bukowski of Sterling Lord Literistic, an agency that also represents an astonishing number of writers I admire. I'm really looking forward to sharing the projects we're working on together with the world. Stay tuned for more prose to come.
