It took three months for me to realize Jackie wrote. We worked together at Lovely and she was upstairs. I remember sprinting to her desk after reading her short ficiton, and bombarding her with questions like “how long have you been writing”, “why do you write”, “what’s your process like”. 💫 This interview caught some of the answers. If starting to write has been on your mind, I hope this piece could encourage you to take the first steps, either picking up a book or writing a random paragraph today. Enjoy!
