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'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.”
Mike Sowden, Everything Is Amazing
“Ali's words make me feel less alone and more sane — as a writer, as a deep-feeler, as a human. I'm grateful for every letter I get to read 💚”
