Nicolle Elizabeth

77 interviews and now you people be happy goddamn you etc 14

5. Some MFA fuck will host the Oscars.

77. In other sad news:

“If you’re a writer starting out now and you want to get a novel published, it’d better have a nice sympathetic character and a straightforward story that hopefully involves overcoming some hardship.”

14. Flash Fiction interviews Nicolle Elizabeth. I thank them.

My favorite part of it is that it isn’t getting another print run. Can I say that?
