What's your relationship been like with Neil's daughters? Has the stepmom thing been awkward, for either side?

Also, I hope you feel better.

thank you.

it's been interesting.
i met all of them at different times, and at first it was definitely awkward.
and funny in retrospect. neil was the most worried about holly not liking me, because she's the harshest critic.
but holly and i bonded pretty hardcore and have become close over these years. maddy and i are further apart in age and have less in common, so i feel more like a big sister to her than a peer. and watching her grow from a kid to a middle school kid at 14 to a college kid at 18 has been amazing. she's such a sharp girl...i find myself always envious of her constantly enthusiastic outlook. she's so happy i want to bottle her and take her with me. and mike, who's actually closer in age to me than neil, is just....a really nice guy. like neil, he's sort of shy and not over-talkative and we've never had a chance to really bond or get personal. but i really love all his kids, and mostly, i love how neil loves them. he's a beautiful dad.

When and what was the last idea you had that stopped you in your tracks?  if you can share it that is.
(p.s hope you get better right quick :) )

Did you decide to send your LA Women of Letters letter (first time)? If so, how was it received?

ok, ok, do you ever write songs on your laptop / phone instead of pen and paper.

and, what were you like as a kid.

hope your sick goes away soon. might be kick ass to record some vocals with that voice though.

i actually finally gave in and started writing on laptop. but only when i'm on the road, in a plane or something.

but when i'm home or in one sitting spot, i till really prefer papers and papers and scribbling.
i think better that way.

After you posted your poem about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, I tweeted you, questioning how you could possibly have empathy for him. As a lifelong Bostonian, I was furious. For weeks, I watched the shitstorm that ensued and the hate directed at you. As a lifelong human being, I was sad. I wish I had tried harder to understand where you were coming from that day, and it's bothered me for months. I just wanted to say I'm sorry and ask if you'd accept my apology? I should have been a better person that day.

I'm Morgan, a 21 year old girl and a big fan. Deciding that you're going to do music/film/performance art, anything artistic really, is a difficult choice when you know in a realistic world you probably won't be financially stable most of the time, or people will think you're wasting your time, or people will think you're idealistic/delusional. Even though money isn't a problem for me, something about it scares me. I know I shouldn't care what people think, and I know I shouldn't be afraid of failure, but I am. Even though I've always been very creative and had a strong desire to express myself artistically, to make a difference in peoples lives in a provoking way. I don't always understand my creative ideas and urges and, although I want to go public with it, although I want to share it, I'm afraid. So I was wondering if you've had/have these feelings and how you work through them? How did you decide to take the leap into music/art as a career choice? What motivated you to make it a reality? And many as a bonus question: Will you be coming to Miami/Florida anytime in the future? I LOVE YOU.

How does your family react to songs that appear to be/are inspired or about them?

Ps. I am starting to feel sickness as well and since you gave me a beautiful kiss at the Calgary house party I am thinking we have a twin sickness!

my mother can get really irritated. by songs that feels reflect her badly....she complains. it's hard. we actually got into a spat a few months ago when the guardian article came out and i talked about living in "a house with no metaphor". she hit the roof and sent me an email with the subject header "after all we've done, do we deserve this?"
i tried to talk her off the roof. our relationship is complicated.

god i hope my mother doesn't figure out how to find the forum.
it was hard enough when she figured out how to use twitter.

p.s. i love not typing in 140 characters. my fingers are like FREEEEEEDOM!!!!!!

Hi Amanda.

I watched the livestream of the lincon centre gig. I loved your cover of Smells Like Teen Spirit, especially the way you connected with the people in the crowd as you passed through them. You could tell from their eyes that it was a special moment for them. I was also crying when you sang the song about the French boy who emailed you late one night. Very emotional moment.

I guess I have no question, I just wish you and Neil the best.

Love,

Greig - Scotland
