Bit of Love

“And now I can feel things turning, slowly. I can feel this tiny, fragile writer person getting bigger, like a candle flame growing. Tonight is a writing night, and I feel giddy, antsy, bold in a new way. I feel like I have a secret: I am becoming something else. On the outside, I look like a person who has a desk and meetings, but underneath, I’m a writer. I’m a writer. I keep saying it to myself, and it feels risky and furtive.”
