My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. What if?
Q. What’s your greatest flaw?
A. It's a tie. I have great skill in negativity—I can make even the most exciting opportunity seem like a downer. And I'm also easily distracted—to the point where I have to physically remove myself from my apartment, which contains the television, in order to write.
Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?
A. I say "awesome" far too much. The world cannot possibly be this awesome. I write "like" all the time and like to say it, like, constantly, and I bet it's really annoying. When I write, I tend to start sentences with the word "but," almost as if I'm arguing with myself. But then I try to edit them out.
Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?
A. I'm a bit of a mess. My desk, my apartment, my bag, my hair—you name it.
Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. I'd move to Paris in a heartbeat if that's what you're asking.
