the suffering artist trope is out. taking care of yourself creatively & spiritually is in.
“Little Things is a remix of the literary salon. An antidote to creative loneliness. A therapy session. Cocktails with a friend. Ali shares tips and insights with optimism and humor. If you're a writer looking for community, this is a great place to start.”
Pablo Andreu, 401 Que?
“Ali is a smart writer who, in Little Things, has found a way to combine her writing expertise with her passion for yoga and wellness. There's a lot to take from this newsletter for writers and other creative people.”
Ben Blacker, Re:Writing
“Ali's an accomplished...everything-er in the entertainment industry: writer, actor, film director, it's mad how she fits it all in. (Most notably, writing for AppleTV+'s Emmy-winning "The Morning Show".) And 'Little Things' is about the *big* things in a working writer's life, like regaining faith in your own work, & negotiating the knocks of a whirlwind industry - all hard-won, reliable advice from someone in the trenches doing that work every day, delivered with kindness and wit.”
