Author Interview with Lisa Romeo + GIVEAWAY!

I first met Lisa at HippoCamp 2016 where I attended her incredibly useful session on writing about one topic across multiple pieces. That was my first writing conference ever, and I was so intimidated by everyone that I only spoke to something like five people, of which Lisa was one. We chit chatted in the waiting area to pitch agents and editors for our then-unpublished memoirs, and although I don’t…

Grimdark Perfection

Since November 6, 2016, I’ve been vibing with Cassandra of Troy. I remember sitting outside on my parents’ porch with my mom and my sister around Christmas after the election and telling them that I felt like we had entered the darkest timeline.

Lara Lillibridge’s Thoughts on Perfect Summer Days

Failure and Self Worth

I got fired last week. I keep writing and saying that sentence, trying to make it feel more… something. Real, I guess? I’ve never been fired before, and I’ve certainly never felt less than extremely valued at a job that I was demonstrably (numbers don’t lie, y’all) good at. I guess I’m lucky that this is the first time? Either way, it sucks to be fired, and failure has its…
