Hi dear friends--
This week, we talked about Leora's Moana costume and also Halloween (even though, yes, it's January....) and then we had a wonderful conversation with the writer L'Oreal Thompson Payton, a health and wellness writer at Fortune magazine, and author of the forthcoming STOP WAITING FOR PERFECT. We discuss perfectionism as a writer and a parent, IVF, sleep regressions, publishing as a debut Black woman author, managing professional jealousy, and rest as resistance for Black women. And a magical moment where she sees her preorder link for the first time!
