I always give myself permission to write a craptastic first draft. If you set a timer for each day, you'll show up and gain momentum and create a habit.(less)

What 4 Deaths In 5.5 Months Have Taught Me

What 4 Deaths In 5.5 Months Have Taught Me In the past five months, I’ve lost four loved ones—people I cared deeply about and who influenced my life in uncountable ways, including my mother who died of COVID-19 on December 7, 2020. Before now, I didn’t know grief could stack up the way it has, […]

Big Summer by Jennifer Weiner
“I like to have a martini / Two at the very most / Three and I’m under the table / Four and I’m under the host.”
This is one of my all-time favorite Dorothy Parker poems. I think of it often, and I’m glad I finally got to use it in a book!

Jennifer shared a note and highlight from
Big Summer by Jennifer Weiner
The trick of the Internet, I had learned, was not being unapologetically yourself or completely unfiltered; it was mastering the trick of appearing that way. It was spiking your posts with just the right amount of real… which meant, of course, that you were never being real at all. The more followers I got, the more I thought about that contradiction; the more my followers praised me for being fearless and authentic, the less fearless and authentic I believed myself to be in real life.
I’ve been on these Interwebs a long, long time. I had a blog in the aughts, I joined Twitter in ‘09, I’ve seen the rise of Facebook and Instagram, and the fall of MySpace. God help me, I’m even on TikTok. Through it all, every time anyone woud advise me, or tell me what readers want from authors, the answer was always ‘authenticity.’ They want to peek behind the curtain, they want to see what your life is really like! Except I don’t think that’s actually what anyone wants. What people want is a version of the truth, but not the whole messy, complicated reality. We want to see how that movie ...more

Big Summer by Jennifer Weiner
It’s almost religious, that belief, that faith that a piece of silk or denim or cotton jersey could disguise your flaws and amplify your assets and make you both invisible and seen, just another normal woman in the world; a woman who deserves to get what she wants.
When readers started talking to me about BIG SUMMER, I thought they’d have questions about friendship, about the themes of transformation and revenge, about the way the Internet can help and hurt us on our quest for self-esteem. Instead, the number one question by far is, “Do the clothes you describe, the ones that Daphne gets to wear, actually exist? And if they do, where can I buy them?” The short answer is that the clothes aren’t real. I made them up. I thought about what I’d most like to wear, the clothes that I most wish existed (pockets are, of course, the Holy Grail, and who doesn’t ...more
