Words have a bizarre power over us. We seek meaning in them, cling to certain sentences, and hold out hoping they won’t fall apart in the morning. But the truth is, not all promises can be kept. I Promised You I Wouldn’t Write This is a deeply personal look into Ari’s own journey with words. The ones she didn’t say. The ones she can’t forget. And maybe most importantly, the ones she knows she still has to reclaim her power from. Ari examines loss (romantic, familial, and inner) and the undeniable strength that comes from vulnerability.
