Danielle’s Recent Updates

“Midwest nice was a steady, polite gaslighting I found sinister, a forced humility that prevented anyone from speaking up when they’d been diminished or disrespected, lest they be labeled an outsider. I was bewildered by the pride the region took in these pathologies.”
Danielle Evans, The Office of Historical Corrections

“Forty days and forty nights of being locked up helpless, knowing everything you’d ever known was drowning all around you, and at the end God shows up with a whimsical promise that he will not destroy the world again with water, which seems like a hell of a caveat.”
Danielle Evans, The Office of Historical Corrections

“Appreciate the liars. When people don’t hide things, it means they don’t care enough to be afraid of losing you.”
Danielle Evans, Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self
