Earlier this year, recuperating in bed from surgery and feeling painfully adult, I found my journals from 2005/2006 on an old hard drive. I was, of course, full of the kind of mortification that is part and parcel with meeting a former version of yourself, a woefully misguided girl desperate to be embraced by even the least exemplary specimens of young American malehood. But I was also moved by- maybe even proud of- how carefully I had recorded that period of time, my younger self's commitment to capturing the kinds of hyper-internal formative moments so often lost to adulthood. I have always believed that women chronicling their own lives, even (or especially) at their most mundane, is a radical act. That's why I thought the diaries might be worth sharing as a short book, with proceeds going to Girls Write Now and their mission to give young women the tools to tell their own stories. I can't think of a more admirable goal for an organization, or a better reason to expose the oft troubling thought patterns of my final teenage year.
