We can’t all be Beverly Hills Heiresses, I guess *shrug emoji*(less)

#DVPit Interview!


To me, mean girls have always been ambitious young women who were told to divert their expression of that drive into the least healthy avenues: through their looks, over boys, and into popularity. I wanted to look at those girls from the inside out, and to see if they could find healthy ways to express their creativity, their loyalty, and their ambition.


Chatted with Beth Phelan of #DVPit and m...

“He was a boy made to be conquered, maybe even saved. But not by Lulu. She was neither a knight or a Nightingale. She was a girl made to be selfish. She would have her own adventures.”
Aminah Mae Safi, Not the Girls You're Looking For

“You’ve always been my independent one. You hold in so much. You aren’t who anyone decides you are. You aren’t how anyone treats you. You have to find peace in that. It’s not easy, but you do.”
Aminah Mae Safi, Not the Girls You're Looking For

“They will tell us we can be better than queens of the wild great something. They already told us we couldn’t be fairy princesses or white knights or dragon slayers. They will tell us to grow up, be serious. They will tell us to fight for a spot at the table. But now, we don’t. We desecrate their tables. We dance on tables. We take really big swords and hack those tables into tiny little pieces.”

“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

“Oh, you've outdone me twice now, you queen of forgiveness. The ring's a promise of peace and I'm greedy with hope. It's a song that we sing in a tongue that we share. And though you say it's a gift from a king to a king, I say it's a sign from a queen to a queen.”
Melina Marchetta, Quintana of Charyn

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”
Roald Dahl

“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Maya Angelou

“I would venture to guess that Anon, who wrote so many poems without signing them, was often a woman.”
Virginia Woolf, A Room of One's Own
