I want quiet.

Aug 23, 2021

Look, all year long I've talked about launching a newsletter. About wanting to be a bestselling author. About growing an audience and really being 'somebody'. And I've done everything possible to avoid actually launching the damn thing.

Because it's not aligned with what makes me happy.

I'm the girl in the cabin with the dog in the mountains. I'm not a killer. I'm a poet. I'm an artist. I like writing about feelings more than about how to be a profit center in life.

I don't want to be 'on' all the time.

I want quiet.

I don't want to speak at conferences.

I want quiet.

I don't want a public life.

I want quiet.

Yet, I was born to write, and I want to be a success at it.

But if I'm gonna do it, I gotta do it my way.
