Friends and “serious writers” have called you “stupid”, but truth, my editor Gaby Moss was great. She made my story better and kept my voice. You pay your writers. And I’d do it again. Here it is below:
When the term “resting bitch face” had its cultural moment, I laughed along. But could never really relate, because I have always had the opposite problem: Resting Nice Face (RNF).

People with RNF appear approachable, and smile without meaning to. Think Zooey Deschanel, Kimmy Schmidt, or Belle from Beauty and the Beast.
