I'm Jess. Obviously.

There is a beauty to writing that is only procurable with time, patience and a stubbornness to not give up. I’ve found myself completely agitated by a project, where the idea would just not formulate itself into words. Even after three months of pounding away at the idea, the words were always off mark, never quite there, and always just out of grasp. Then finally, something clicked. I couldn’t stop writing from that moment on, and every second of frustration and berating myself seemed miniscule compared to the joy of finally conveying what needed to be said in a fresh and invigorating way. The world of writing just made sense at that moment. Words take time.
