Celebrities Who Share Your Ailments

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I just finished Carrie Fisher’s book Wishful Drinking. She certainly led an interesting life, to say the least. In the book, she talks quite a bit about mental illness as it has been something she struggled with most of her life. A few different times throughout the book she mentions lists of other celebrities that share her ailments or experiences. This part was funny to me as it reminded me of a website called Celebrities with your Disease. And once again I was struck by the realization of how much we are pushed to want to be like these famous people. We even find ways that we suffer the same as them. Write a scene in which your character discovers something that she and her favorite celebrity have in common. It doesn’t have to be an illness in this scene even though that was the sample I gave you.

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
