My incredibly talented friend Lauren has been making her zine, Galatea’s Pants, since she was 16. She just released her 10 year anniversary issue, which includes an interview with yours truly. I also—hilariously, humbly—share blurb space with Barbara Kingsolver on the back. Amazing. You can buy it here. It’s only $4.50, including shipping. It’s cheaper than a large pumpkin latte and won’t give you caffeine jitters.
Here’s an excerpt from my interview, on my Great Writerly Discipline:
What’s your writing process?
It’s very A.D.D. Usually I’ll write a few sentences, then go check Facebook. Then I’ll read a blog post, maybe do a little research on whatever the topic is, and write another sentence before deciding to browse OkCupid. I don’t know why it takes me so long to finish anything.
Another gem is that Lauren interviews her 16-year-old self in this issue. Read that here.
In other news, I turned 29! There’s a tie for best present. It’s between this:
(Black suede unicorn vest!)
(Penis-shaped rubber band?!)
These are actually the only two presents I received, which is somehow also not that surprising.
