{the life} What I’ve Been Writing

by Rachel on May 17, 2012

“Writing is hard for every last one of us — straight white men included. Coal mining is harder. Do you think miners stand around all day talking about how hard it is to mine for coal? They do not. They simply dig.” (Dear Sugar, The Rumpus Advice Column #48: Write Like a Motherfucker)

After I shared what I’ve been reading on Monday, I realized I should also share what I’ve been writing! Here is what I’ve had published recently:

The Downsides to Meeting Your Goal Weight (SHAPE)

Beauty products based on The Hunger Games? I don’t get it. (Color Me Rouge)

How I Feel Before an Eyebrow Wax vs. How I Feel After an Eyebrow Wax (Color Me Rouge)

Beauty and the Bad Mother (Color Me Rouge)

I’ve also been writing 2-3 posts a week for the local yoga blog I mentioned last month and responding to questions and comments as a U by Kotex peer panelist. I’m definitely keeping myself busy!
