All-new fears.


While traveling to research The Girl in the Road, I kept a notebook where I’d write down expenses, logistical details, and occasionally, pep talks to myself. I found this page while looking for something else. It’s pretty self-explanatory—at the time, the notion that I would actually write this book just felt laughable, and I was trying to write through my misgivings.

I thought this might be encouraging to anyone embarking on a project that feels overwhelming. Including all yall NaNoWriMo writers. What you’re working on might feel like the most absurd and awkward and awful piece of shit right now, but that is part of the process.
