For me, the urge to write lays atop of a bedrock of panic.
My favorite Stephanie essays! Everyone should subscribe 💕
I let my subscription lapse for various reasons, but I think it’s time to re-up ;)
I just finished reading the essay online on The Sewanee Review. I’m truly thankful for your authenticity and the gift you put out there, by writing from your so open heart. It’s genuinely meaningful to me to read something so honest about an emotion that’s ever so present among writers, among people in general. You made me embrace this “panic” I get to feel probably every day :) thank you for making it a friendly sentiment to have and for being such an eye-opener. Thank you for inspiring us to keep going. Thank you! :)
Ms. Danler. Damn autocorrect.
Ms. Danger: Thank you for this. Coincidentally, John Freeman wrote a piece that appeared today on LitHub in which he suggests finding a great lit magazine and subscribing. You’ve just made my decision a little easier on where to apply that wisdom. Be well.
Subscribed to the The Sewanee Review after your post on lit mags, now I'm extra glad I did!
I read it yesterday and loved/appreciated it so much; going to reread when I get the print edition. Thank you for sharing your wisdom and experience in such a moving and affecting and human way.
