Words Are Hard is an online collection of personal essays and other projects by Megan Ghorashy, based on the awkward and hilarious happenings in her life. She currently lives in New York City, working hard to become a full time actor and to never have to work another day job ever again in her life. She hopes her readers find solitude in her writing, for they can look back at everything she’s written and feel relief that their life isn’t as bad and problematic as hers.
