A Crisis of Creativity

In the last three years I’ve completed two huge, creative projects.  I’ve spent the last two years working on my first novel, For the Summer, and in the last six months I wrote and performed my own solo show, Fangirl.  I’m in awe that both of these things actually exist in the world, let alone … Continue reading
