"If I’m going to expose anyone it’s going to be me," Cheryl Strayed

If you can make it through (it’s on the long side), this is a nice interview with author Cheryl Strayed about being brave in your work and how you write about the people in your life and still protect them.

“One thing I will say is that you don’t know what will happen if you write the truth. You don’t know what will happen if you decide to write what you feel really compelled to write. You think that there might be this consequence but there might actually be a different sort of outcome, and it could be a positive one.” Cheryl Strayed
