Hello I’m Annie.
This is a sweary newsletter in which I talk shit about my feelings + books, sex, writing, growth, & other mysteries.
It’s like overly confessional memoir excerpts (except less organized) mated with overly introspective personal essays (except not as well-developed, in any sense) and had a baby…
and then that offspring grew up and mated with a self-conscious (but kinda cute) librarian, and had a baby,
and then THAT offspring grew up and mated with an overly instructive, snarky and self-deprecating advice columnist and
and you end up with This Newsletter.
I’d like to see that lineage mapped out by 23andme.
What to expect
For all subscribers: I sent out a free newsletter every weekend, unless I forget, and then I don’t.
But most of the time, I do.
What’s in this weekend letter?
Usually it’s a personal/confessional essay which starts with a story from my very own life and then deep dives into some kind of emotional, introspective rambling with a few advice-nuggets thrown in there. Feel free to ignore those.
I try to limit the swears in the public edition because my Dad is a subscriber. Hi Dad!
Why to pay me monies
If you spring for a paid subscription, you’ll receive all this and more:
an audio/podcast-y version of most letters.
a lot of GIFS.
weekly reading notes, and
monthly reading log (I wasn’t kidding about that librarian thing).
the occasional transcription of the voices in my head.
stories about the real, unseen, gritty world of professional writing, freelancing, and content agencies. (Hint: it’s not that gritty.)
more talking about sex.
more talking about productivity 🤷♀️. Sometimes I can’t help myself.
Here is a very special offer for all new paid subscribers, because YOU PEOPLE ROCK:
