Because I am very lucky, one of my writing professor's sent me a link to this piece today, by Julia Wertz. She is a writer/cartoonist/explorer and she writes about comedy and depression and addiction in a clear, honest, non-victim-y, and, most importantly, funny way.
I am obsessed. She is pretty rad.
You can buy her books here.
Or better yet, buy her books, directly from her, along with other stuff, here.
You can see more of her work on her website.
And while you're at it, check out her blog about exploring abandoned buildings, etc.
You are very, very welcome.
