It’s true.

Any advice for a freelance writer looking to publish personal essays in magazines, etc?

I wish I could, but it’s an aspect of publishing I know virtually nothing about. Sorry!

Master of the House

One of my favorite songs of all forever

So Lauren I see you're reading Wicked, it's amazing right?:) Now every time something Wizards of Oz pops up I always have to defend Elphie aha. What about you? How do you feel about her?:) P.S You just have to see the musical! It's phenomenal!:)

I just finished the book last night! I really liked it, but for me the high point of the story was when Elphie was in school, and I wish I could have spent more time there. Once she left, the story got pretty dark and lonely. Talking to a friend who saw the musical, he tells me that those school years are the main focus and that the time jump isn’t as big, so even though I enjoyed the novel I suspect I’ll like the musical a lot more once I get a chance to see it.
