a little about the blog

Meet the Author:

Hi, there! I’m Megan–the one on the left! The cutie on the right is my girlfriend Melissa, and I’m sure you’ll be reading about her soon enough if you plan to stick with me on this journey, but this section’s about me, so let’s try to focus on that for now.

I’m 22, queer, and I live in Chicago, IL. I recently graduated from Columbia College Chicago where I majored in playwriting, and now I’m working on my MFA in Secondary Ed. to be a High School English & Drama Teacher!

I use a lot of exclamation points in my writing, but don’t let that fool you! I struggle with chronic anxiety & depression, AND I was recently diagnosed with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome for ya nubes that didn’t know). Because of this, I spend a lot of time at a variety of doctors’ offices to make sure my health is top notch.

Recently I’ve adopted a lifestyle that I like to refer to as “Joyful.” It’s based on the concept that “joy is a form of radical self-care.” In prioritizing joy, mindfulness, self-love, and healthy boundaries, I have experienced a truly magical shift in my life. I like to think that being joyful is part of why I’m not in a place where I feel good enough to write again, so I wanted to write a little about that, too.

If you want to know more, feel free to reach out! My DM’s are always open!

Why Are You in a Sink?

I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith begins with the line “I am writing this while sitting in the kitchen sink.” The narrator of this novel always inspired me. She wasn’t looking for a story when it found her. I’ve always known I wanted to be a writer, but I haven’t always known where to start, so I’m starting In the Kitchen Sink. I’d love for you to join me on this journey!

What I Write:

While I formally studied playwriting in undergrad, one of my favorite styles of writing has always been prose.

For ease of navigation, my blog is divided into 3 categories:
