In Which Ella Talks to Herself

Hey, Ella?


Remember that time you were going to post a very long last post about a book launch party?


And then you didn’t?


Because you spent all day cleaning the bathrooms and trying to read a dystopian novel for work?


And then when you were going to edit it you instead spent the time crying because your parents went to bed early and you were all alone?

This is getting embarrassing.

And then you reread everything you wrote and felt horrible about yourself?

Yes. What’s your point?

You should probably apologize to everyone for drawing out a story they really want to hear.

Yes. I feel really bad about it. I am very sorry. I didn’t do it intentionally.

What about that time you spent looking up youtube videos of cats? Or the time you spent reading poetry? Couldn’t you have been productive then?


And now you’re going to go off and feel pathetic and stupid while hiding under the covers possibly–but probably–crying?


I should stop asking myself rhetorical questions and go to sleep.

And as always, you can also find me on tumblr at, if you’re into that kind of thing.

  1. It’s okay! That was very amusing!
    Plus, I have a paper due tomorrow and I haven’t written anything but an outline. Yaaay for being unproductive!
