…d about using my personal life for my writing. I’ve even been called the “Taylor Swift of writers.” I, personally, find that offensive on behalf of Taylor Swift and all other female writers because no one makes those aspersions to male writers who do the same damn thing. We all write about our lives, in some form or fashion. In fact, speaking our truth is what makes it possible for us to connect to readers. No one wants to read stories that don’t ring true or resonate with us.
