a few months ago i was interviewed (by phone) by alison lee over at craftcast. as i listened to our conversation on the podcast, i was flushed with embarrassment: does my voice really sound like that? is it possible for one person to say “it’s true” that many times in a short conversation? do i really respond with “mmm hmms” that much in real life? but all of that aside, i felt exposed in the way i do when i’m honest. when i simply tell my story. and when i spill. and spill i did – on everything from my artful beginnings, to who inspires me the most, to how the book deal came about (and the details of that whole process), to how i struggle with balance, to how writing is becoming more of my life, to how i can still feel uncomfortable with the process of making art (and how this is good), to how expressing my vulnerabilities in my art have been the greatest gift of all.
