"I would say that it was hard, but it was also the best thing I ever did and the best thing I will ever do because I think it's a good thing that you get, like, a flashback and really remember all those moments," she told MTV News at a Los Angeles book signing. "I think it's important not to grow up so much that you forget about your heart and what's important for your heart."
It may have been hard for Cyrus to write about some of those more painful moments, but she said she did it to help show her fans that even though she's famous and things seem great for her, that wasn't always the case.
"There's a lot about being bullied and a lot about breakups, and that's something that is really hard to write about and stuff that's easy to relate to," she said. "And I wanted my fans to always be able to relate to me, so I think that was really important."
Sure, being bullied and breaking up with a Jonas brother may have been difficult, but there's still one tragedy that is the most painful for Cyrus to talk about. "[Writing about] the loss of my granddad [was hard]," she said. "That was something I hadn't talked about in a long time, and I was really happy. ... It was really good to just remember that."
Now that she's released a book, does Cyrus have any plans to put down the pen? The answer is no. "I would love to do another book and hopefully a tour and more songwriting and more CDs, more movies and more TV," she said. "I just want to keep working as long as I can, 'cause it's my dream and I love it."
