do u ever do something mildly impolite like not give a nice goodbye or not hold a door and spend the rest of the day thinking about it
NEVER-BEFORE SEEN photos of….
My second book, Healing Old Wounds With New Stitches, which is now hardback and pocket-sized!!!! (4.5” x 6”) :D
As you can see in these photos, the print copies now actually have a spine (blue) and are hardback, and are small enough to fit in your pocket! :D
(They used to be too big to fit in a pocket and were stapled together loosely, softbound.)
This book is split into two parts: the first half about grief, death, depression, eating disorders, suicide, sexual assalt, etc, and the second half about recovery, healing, survival, and growth.
I’m using all funds from the book sales for my college tuition.

And they’re enticing, aren’t they, all link-y and stuff. Maybe you wanna click some? Never read one?

Oh, and some awesome soul even made a TVTropes page for the recaps. That’s so goddamn crazy to me ‘cause I’ve lost like literal months worth of time to that site. So cool. Shoutout to donovan-drago for letting me know.
So yeah, final stretch for realsies this time. Can’t wait to see y’all every week for the usual recaps and whatever else I drum up in between! Aces.
Lucy Hicks Anderson was a pioneer in the fight for marriage equality. She spent nearly sixty years living as a woman, doing domestic work, and working as a madam. During the last decade of her life, she made history by fighting for the legal right to be herself with the man she loved.
After marrying her second husband, soldier Reuben Anderson, in Oxnard, California, in 1944, local authorities discovered that she was assigned male at birth. The couple was charged with perjury for marrying despite their both being legally male, resulting in ten years of probation. Standing up to the charges against her, Anderson said, “I defy any doctor in the world to prove that I am not a woman. I have lived, dressed, acted just what I am, a woman.” Years later, Anderson and her husband were charged again, this time with fraud after she received federal money reserved for military spouses. Both went to prison and were banned from Oxnard upon their release.
Lucy Hicks Anderson spent the remainder of her life in Los Angeles until her death in 1954, at age 68, leaving behind a legacy of authenticity and determination in the face of unjust laws.

CLICHÉ: Using food to describe a character’s skin color or race
Have you noticed how writers sometimes describe the physical appearances of non-white characters? A default strategy is to use food-related metaphors and similes. Does your Chinese character have almond-shaped eyes? Does your Nigerian love interest have skin like dark chocolate or espresso? If so, you may have fallen into the dreaded “Foreigner as Food” trope.
you ever notice a lot of stuff is considered poor and gross unless its upper middle class (white) people doing it
food trucks in the 90s were the realm of taco trucks and fairground food and were always considered unhygienic and nasty until all these rich city kids started…
