My New Column For Glamour: Love, The Next Chapter


Hello lovely readers. As you may know, I wrote for Glamour for more than 5 years, a place I adored; and after I left, missed so much. So when my former editor asked me if I’d return to write a new series about life post-divorce, I said yes (well, first I thought about it long and hard over a few glasses of wine with pals, and then I said yes).

At first I was a little nervous. Write about my personal life? Publicly? Eek! After all, I’ve never really written in this way before. My books are fiction; my articles all stem from interviewing other people about their lives. I’ll be honest, writing about my life feels a little scary. But, at the end of the day, here’s the thing: It just feels right. (Look for my essay about Life 2.0 in the December issue of The Doctor Oz Magazine; on newsstands in November.)

I think that when we create a space for honesty, openness and authenticity, it allows others to shed their walls and be authentic too. The fact of the matter is that my life is not perfect, and it never was. (Who’s is?!) But for so many years, I tried very hard to project the perfect image to the world. I fiercely avoided sharing the less flattering angles of my life.

Time to pull the curtain back a little. Time to be real.

So here I am, figuring things out. Happy, a little lost, kind of confused, but doing (mostly) OK. And I’m writing my way through it.

I hope you’ll follow along. You can start by reading my first post, here. Then find the others in a list here.

Happy reading, and hugs.
