Okay, I have some new stuff for y’all to read.
First this. I am over at the Yeah, Write Blog. Sweet!
Next up I busted out a wee essay about reaching racial pain threshold and used one of my infamous metaphors. My Cardigan Has No Pockets.
Later this week new flash fiction by me too.
Someone asked me not long ago if I’m salty about the success of E.L James is it? That fifty shades chick.
Look, here’s the deal.
I’m pretty well aware of my audience and frankly her super fans prolly wouldn’t like my freaky ass. That’s fine.
Fuck yeah, she wrote some filthy shit and made more money than I can even imagine.
Honestly, I’m more upset that my financial plans were derailed by an unexpected 50$ expense for the month.
Frankly, she’s not paying me. She’s not fucking me. I don’t care for her books so I really don’t have the energy to give too much of a shit.
I’m having feels about formatting again. I think I’m just not going to submit to a lot of places that have to have that. I’ve noticed that due to the style I tend to write in, visually manuscript format just looks fucked up and like I got it wrong. I don’t know why I have such a thing about that. I really just hate to see an ugly story and I feel like on first look, it makes my submission just look sloppy.
I’m laboring on another urban fantasy story. This one was inspired by a post on Tumblr and is about a Black fairy who lives just outside Seattle, her cat shape shifter girlfriend, her Djinn heritage and a fucking dragon egg she and her girlfriend are now proud Mama’s of.
It started out just about the egg and the Djinn family heritage.
Now it’s about family dynamics, relationship changes, dragons and how does one exactly lug around a dragon egg in the modern world without breaking the rules or tricking people into thinking you’re pregnant.
Also work on SCLAB is going like hell. Come over here to check up on what we’re up to.
I’m writing a lot. Stress or no, I am feeling very good about what I’m putting down. I’m working on some other new nonfiction that is a bit of a departure for me. I’m still not super sure about it and some of it gives me the worst bubble guts but, we know that is my cue to go the fuck in.
Tomorrow I’ll post a tiny Yeah, Write story.
The rest of the week I’ll be absent because HOLY SHIT I GET TO SEE MY BEST FRIEND AND WIFEY.
I’m super stoked.
Okay, that’s all for now y’all. I got work to do.
