Did you ultimately banish that nit-picking inner voice?
No, I just reprogrammed her. I’d say we were in an all-out catfight for the first six months of the experiment, but then we sat down at the negotiating table and I confronted all the reasons looks matter as well as the reasons I’d imbued appearance with a power that should have been coming from other sectors of my life. It didn’t necessarily happen by the end of my experiment, but by the end of the book my inner voice has grown up and gotten real. She’s changed from a sulky insecure teenager into a real asset of womanhood.
