So my first article at XOjane went live over the weekend and you can read that here.
I also have a kink essay to finish, a new article for Luna Luna to get ready and more for XOjane.
Now while I am really into these non fictional someone likes me (OH MY FUCK YOU LIKE ME) things happening something else has happened that I’m not so about.
So I’ve written about it, meditated about it, steamed about it.
I feel like this is a level up moment.
The thing is I am really fucking angry but beyond being angry I just-
okay I just don’t understand WHY the need to make shit personal about me when I didn’t make it personal about you.
These are the kind of mother fuckers I can’t fuck with. if you can’t be grown enough to say, I don’t like you and then hear, well I don’t like you either and we go our separate ways. I am not the droids you are looking for.
I have shit to do that does not involve trying to negotiate feeling victimized and then consequently really angry every fucking day.
As a dear dear friend guided me a couple of years ago, when my guts are churning I’m going in the right direction.
So with my new non fiction I’m putting my head down and coming through like a tweaked out train.
I am not here for other people’s bullshit.
Okay I had to get that out.
Later this week I have some other announcements. AND really if y’all could swing through the etsy store and maybe drop a few bucks I’d be delighted. I’m trying desperately to save up enough via my writing to buy a new phone because mine is failing and I do not feel safe commuting without my phone.
OH and before I go here how about some stuff to read that I am really excited about right now.
First, Tannarive Due has a new story at Lightspeed and I freaked out. GO read it or listen to it right now.
This piece by Rebecca Carroll at XO is hella relevant to my life right now and I want you to read it.
My dear friend Anna March wrote this piece in Salon. It is about the Pope and save your sanity stay out of the comments.
Another love of my Dena Rash Guzman wrote this about monoculture in farming at Stir. Read it.
Actually here, that whole Lightspeed issue is fucking great so you should read or listen to all of it.
Literary Orphans got a good nod in Poets and Writers so check that out here.
Solarcide is expanding and has a new release out. Go check them out I’m pretty into it.
And you should check out the new issue of Flapperhouse. I have it and I am into it.
Okay now I have a lot of work to do and should eat food because I’m a grown up.
