A lot of my time is being taken up with various correspondences right now but I am working on my next post for the Feminst SF Blog. I’ve also begun worldbuilding for the novel I’m going to start soon.
I also need to work on my posts for IBARW (Int’l Blog Against Racism Week). I realize I haven’t talked about race that much here (or have I and I’ve just forgotten because it is an everyday thing for me to talk about race) but it is something I talk about on a regular basis. It affects my life daily, both overt and subversive racism. All the stories I write involve PoC because those are the characters that live inside me. I am a PoC and a colonized person in America it’s something I never forget.
All of this on top of being called for Jury Duty next week. August looks to be insanely busy but I’ll still be posting here regularly (even if it’s only a quick note like this) so don’t worry I’m not disappearing.
And speaking of racism if you haven’t heard about the Jena 6 case, read up on the injustice. And if you want to help there are various things you can do such as donating money to the defense fund here and/or letter writing/calling/signing petitions here. I know better than most that you can’t always contribute financially but there’s always something you can do.
