Smith spun me into her world in the early months of quarantine when life suddenly took an entirely new form. Asking deep questions like, "why do I write?" and answering them with daring, somewhat bleak honesty, this was just the right book for me to read as a creative struggling with similar questions. I feel a sense of gratitude that Smith allowed the reader to be in these moments with her, processing the chaos that ensued at the start of quarantine, honoring her truth that writing is, at its core, just something to do. ~ Reviewed by Maya Bon
