So I’ve gotten some tweets about it and I thought I’d do a little catch up here since I can write more on Tumblr than on Twitter.
As some of y’all have noticed, I’m no longer working for Thought Catalog in an official capacity. I love them. They’re amazing and wonderful and the split is totally amicable — beyond amicable. They’ve been my home for more than a year and they’ve skyrocketed my writing and kept me fresh and my writing muscle in great shape. But! Some other stuff is going on and I can’t work there full-time anymore. It’s bittersweet!
So! Where will I be writing? Well, there’s stuff in the works for me to keep writing for the Internet, so no worries there. I have more articles coming for Cosmopolitan and other magazines. I am working on a book of essays and will be releasing some more longer-form writing online for you guys to read very soon! I also want to write on this Tumblr every morning but I want to know if you guys would be into that. When I worked for TC, I would wake up and write first thing and I think that’s been very good for me so I’d love to continue to do that on this blog — just get my morning thoughts out in 300-800 word snippets. Would you guys be into that?
So peeps who were concerned: Everything is so, so good with me career-wise. I’ve been SUPER busy. I went to LA and met with a slew of awesome people about writing and working in TV. It was unbelievable and humbling and wonderful to hear such positive stuff about my work and to learn how other people make it in this business. I wish I could disclose specifics but I don’t think I can. Let’s just Jewishly say I was plotzing the whole time. On Thursday, I’m headed to Florida to hang with my family for a few days, write, go on some doctor’s appointments. You know, real cool stuff.
I’m basically at a place right now where I want to own my writing in every way possible and I am fortunate enough to just barely be able to do that. I want to produce stuff for you all that I am proud of and that comes directly from me, if that makes sense. I’ll keep you updated on future gigs and you can always come here and read my writing — I really will do that morning essay thing if enough people say they’d be about it.
Okay, now I have to go to therapy aka buy comic books from Forbidden Planet aka no but for real, my therapist is right next to a comic book store so I should probably just do one of those and it’d take care of what both are supposed to do, right? Okay, bye.
