Hannah has recently experienced the type of success that had eluded her for the first season of Girls. With her new writing gig, she now has a toehold in the increasingly competitive lit industry, which she could parlay into more fulfilling jobs and bigger paychecks if all goes well. But for all the talk of becoming a writer and dreams of being able to tell her parents that she’s a success, is Hannah ready to go from struggling artist to someone who can support themselves? Or is she too comfortable in her current situation to spread her wings?
