In the moment, I pick a writer that I'm trying to out-do, and I write for them. I used to run for the fastest girl in a race, and I'm just as unforgiving about writing. I think I need to work on that, but for now... yeah.
In the long term, like why I write... it's for girls in their bedrooms who know they're special but also suspect they're deeply flawed. So basically, all American girls.
