The things we don't know how to say to the people who matter most.
...in a world that is is so connected, how is it possible to feel so alone?
What is Alone In A Million?
Alone In A Million is a book of poetry I wrote during my first year-or-so in New York. It's my coming of terms, so to speak, with life after graduation. It's heartfelt advice, existential bullshit, and irreverent observation. But most of all, it's the things I don't know how to say to the people who matter most.
Check out some of my poetry on www.elizabethmcintire.tumblr.com.
Why did you write it?
I'd say it this way, but he said it first. "I didn't have any grand ambitions other than to write, share ideas, and try to build an awareness of who I am through my thoughts." - Mark Suster
