  1. Love this quote, Erika. Makes me think of someone I met recently. She asked me what I do: “I said I’m a writer.” She asked me what I write. I told her that it was a mix of journalism, essay, and a memoir-in-progress. She said, “Oh, I’ve always wanted to write a book. I just don’t know what I would write about.”
