A Love Letter To My Bookish Friends

Updated: Sep 8, 2022

I hope you all know how much I appreciate you and cherish our friendship, but just in case you don't, please keep reading.

Thank you so much for being there to celebrate with me during the highest of highs, and comforting me in the lowest of lows. We all know that this industry puts writers in whirlwind scenarios more often than not, and a lot can happen in something as small as an hour. Thank you for hearing my hourly updates, even when it gets exhausting. Thank you for giving me advice on how to keep going.

I hope that you feel like you can come to me for anything, too. I love your work, I love your voice, and more than anything, I love being your friend. I am so grateful to have so many incredibly talented friends in my circle, and I don't know what I did to deserve this position, but I find myself thanking the universe every day. I do not know how to properly express how special it is to have friends who believe in my work, even when I do not.

So, thank you. I wouldn't be chasing this dream without you helping me recover from the wounds received along the way.

In no particular order, and nowhere near an exhaustive list of all who have helped me, thank you: Lauren, Danie, Meg, Aslan, Ria, Britney, Elizabeth, Megan, Kayleigh, Andie, Ris, Calypso, Nikki, Jules, Chelsie, Emily, Emma, Rae, Henry, Bree, Angel, Kelsie, and so many more that I am so lucky to have in my life.
