So I wrote a thing and Lisa over at Luna Luna magazine published it.
In a matter of about ten minutes after I posted it I was inundated with angry White Lady Tears.
And then while I was on my way to work I dropped my protein/snack bar thingy, I lost one of my beloved 8g steel swan earrings AND I am having major sinus issues right now.
On the other hand.
I got a book in a book giveaway, the other responses to my piece at Luna Luna have been fucking awesome. Lisa made me feel super welcome and I can’t explain how much I appreciate that.
Self Care Like a Boss V2.0 is about set to launch tomorrow and I am SUPER excited about what I have done.
Someone I admire a lot who does not internet a whole lot, said some stuff about my work last night that just- y’all. I sat at my desk at work trying to fight back tears while beautiful things were being said to me and it was great.
I’m a little overwhelmed that really great writing things are going on, that is just part of my personality.
So to keep myself from having a melt down or panic attack (WHO the fuck has happiness panic attacks? I have had enough of myself right now) I am going to do the finishing bits on V2.0. Get the cover ready. Write up the listing.
And okay here are some links.
Y’all know I love me some Mensah and he has teamed up with Literary Orphans for an all Black issue of LO. Go check out the call black folks. No I’m serious. Lynx and a few others of you I know are lurking. GET ON THAT. Also FYI the background of this page moves around and there is an autoplay so be prepared.
Go listen to this interview with the magnificent Antonia Crane.
Um okay that’s all for right now I have so much work to do and my face hurts.
