I was just writing all this crazy shit and I thought I was totally insane. And I got [Kathy Acker's novel] Blood and Guts in High School from one of my photo teachers, and I totally felt like, Oh, I'm not crazy! It was such a confidence builder for me. I wasn't even sure what kind of artist I was going to be, like if I was a writer or a photographer or what. But it made me feel like these other women had done this amazing shit and I could too.
