Molly has a degree in creative writing, which her father liked to call “majoring in unemployment”. So she found a job in a different field (education tech) and consoled herself with sneaking excellent vocabulary words and abstract metaphors into everyday business jargon. And sometimes, by night, she still writes. She shared her story in the “Love” Yarn show because she wanted to create something meaningful and relatable and that might reach out to others, while helping explain a little of herself to them. Basically, she wanted to see if she could still write. She had more fun diving into the process of writing and workshopping and performing than she can adequately express, and I’m thankful to The Yarn for helping me tell my story. I hope other queer people, people with moms, and people with friends who are queer and/or have moms take something positive away from it.
