Self Care After Critique Sessions

If you’re at all serious about writing, you’re going to need a critique session at some point. Those sessions are what helps you pick out what’s wrong with your project before you start burning through your list of agents and publishers. But it can hurt. In fact, they might be holding back if it doesn’t. […]

Self-Compassion

One of my biggest weaknesses is being able to show myself compassion. I’m almost delusional in my readiness to brush off a friend’s faults, but I’ll bully myself for the same ones. I try to change my inner hatred but I always end up in the same place. I refuse to believe that a friend […]

Solo Adventures

The best way to build a relationship is to create shared experiences. Friendships strengthen and romance blooms when you do things together. But there’s a more important relationship than the one with your friends and loved ones: your relationship with yourself. Granted, you don’t have to try to create experiences with yourself.

Dating Myself

This week, I bought myself roses. I cut them down and put them in a mason jar full of water. I might buy myself some of those colored beads to put in there and make fresh flowers a weekly thing. But the important part is that I saw flowers, pink roses, and I didn’t just […]

How I Handle Romantic Rejection

The other day, I gave a guy my number. It took a lot of courage to do that. As I braced myself for the rejection that I was certain I’d get in response to his receiving my phone number, I got to thinking about the one last time I gave a guy my number unprompted. […]
