Conspiracy Theories: Sheroes (Part II a)

In case you haven’t figured it out already, I’m white.  I am a privileged white woman who doesn’t have a frakking clue about what it’s like to be a woman of colour in the United States (in the 1920’s or otherwise).  I’m still educating myself about race and how to discuss it effectively; what I […]

Summer Reading

So, in all of this time I’ve spent slacking off and avoiding the Conspiracy Theories series, I’ve actually been doing stuff.  No, I haven’t just been binging on Netflix, painting my nails, and killing Darkspawn…Okay maybe a little, but I have explored the library so close to my new far, far away castle!  I have […]

Revision: Show, Don’t Tell

“Oops!” If you don’t say this about your writing at some point in your process, you’re doing it wrong.  There is always something you can fix, and you know what?  That’s okay!!!!  It doesn’t have to be 110% perfect all the way through production!  I’m still struggling with this concept because I compulsively correct myself […]
