I talked to Mathew Green over at Smile Politely about telling the truth of my female experience AND my cat experience, alongside interviews of Leesa Cross-Smith, Roxane Gay, and Ruben Quesada. We're all reading on Sunday @ Mike n Molly's in downtown Champaign and I am stoooooooooooked about that. 

The boys and I got back this rainy afternoon from a week in Louisville, Nashville, and St. Louis. We sat around the kitchen table eating salads out of styrofoam containers and after a few silent minutes I said "I miss vacation." And I do.

i'm working on this longform (everything's longform when you're used to writing 500-word short stories) personal essay thing and right now it's all rambling and guts hanging out and i'm trying to remind myself that this stage is exciting, the chance to stuff all the stories in one suitcase before taking everything out to refold and smooth it out and pack light.
