  • I paced the room and cracked my knuckles. I thought about that night after I watched The Exorcist and how I was so ready to affirm myself as bad, how tall I was in the mirror, explaining to my worried brother my plan about accepting my wicked affliction. And now, when I truly needed to not be scared, when I needed the art of just enough evil to finish my screenplay, to follow through, I couldn’t summon it. I was back to being the paranoid, stupid girl Bryan called “not all the way there.”
