To weep over a character you hate is a truly special thing.
When I got there, I let myself grieve for the love I lost.
Why do I keep writing about that time I got my heart broken?
My new religion.
A story in which nothing seems right.
I thought it was my job to save the world.
It takes guts to tell the truth, even when you’re making things up.
We miss our old lives. Badly.
“Don’t always be going to the party—give the party.”
Do as I say, not as I did.
