While my writing tab stays up-to-date, I realized it had been a bit since last sharing my recently published pieces on the homepage.
In the past month and a half, Bustle expanded my original essay Where Was Hillary Clinton in Her 20s? Where 9 Famous Women Were at 23 into a series about where inspirational, accomplished, famous women were at every year of their 20s. The essay featured personal lady heroes of mine, from Stevie Nicks to Jane Fonda to Nora Ephron, and it seems the thread resonated with many. After another author covered off on a few ages, I’ve written the following in the series:
Where 13 Famous Women Were At 20, The Awkward First Year of One Crazy Decade features a range of women, including Gloria Steinem, Patti Smith, and Meryl Streep, among many more.
Where 13 Inspiring Women Were at 21, The Year When You’re Finally Entitled To a Drink — and Not Much Else takes a look at ladies like Gilda Radner, Diane Sawyer, and Wendy Davis, and reminded me to be more patient in my ambition.
Finally, my last piece in the series: Where 13 Famous Women Were at 24, The Year When The Quarter-Life Crisis is Imminent. It seemed appropriate that I write about women like Arianna Huffington, Carol Burnett, and Eva Chen as I sit on the cusp of 24.
More blog posts are up on Bed Crumbs:
Mother of the Moon: How Stevie Nicks Created a Coven of (Not-So-Famous) Gold Dust Women: In response to a wonderful feature on The Huffington Post, I wrote a sort-of follow-up to my previous essay, Stevie Nicks’s Daughters of the Moon, about the immense influence of Nicks on thousands millennial women that no one really has recognized exists.
Adventures in Online Dating (Part I)… the title speaks for itself.
