I’m sitting at my desk in my cubicle at work, which I probably shouldn’t admit since I’m on the clock (though honestly, I don’t take smoke breaks or even lunch breaks, so I think I’m okay). Anyway, I’m sitting here with tears running down my face. I have no shame.
I just read the last post on the Use Your Words virtual book tour, and I can’t think of a better way to wrap it up. Thank you to Jenn Mattern at Breed ‘Em and Weep for so completely capturing both what I intended to do in the book and, well, me.
I shouldn’t be surprised, of course. Jenn is amazing. If you don’t read her blog, start reading it. She’s got powerful prose and a core that is brave and beautiful. Thank you, Jenn, for being part of the tour. More importantly, thank you for knowing and understanding that younger version of myself, that version that was struggling to find a way in the world.
Please take a moment to read Jenn’s post. And then take a moment to celebrate all the amazing women out there writing their stories, their humanity.
