Hey y’all. I successfully defended my dissertation this morning. Just call me Dr. Sista Outsider! 🙂
Love and light,
Y’all ready? I’m writing from 8-9:30 every morning. I could use a writing buddy or three or four. 🙂
What is your writing schedule for NaNoWriMo?
Y’all. A sista has been busy! I’ve moved, leaving crazy monochromatic rural PA for the warmth of the southern climes. You can say what you want about the South, but at least I know them devils.
I’m writing like my life depends on it, and in an way, it does. Graduation is December 20, so if we can settle on a defense date, I’ll be graduating this winter. Finally.
The anthology is coming along nicely; we have a wonderful group of writers who have submitted a wide range of stories about Black lesbians that I just know y’all are going to love. We are in the final stages of editing right now, and I’ll update you on the publication date soon.
I’ve missed y’all. What have you been doing while I’ve been away?
Please consider submitting to this important collection!
It’s been a while since I’ve updated this blog. My life has been a bit hectic since the move and the start of this new job. Things are good on a personal front, but I’ll admit that I’ve purposefully refrained from writing here the past few months. Not only that, I’ve tried to stay off of the web in general. I can’t bear to read the news these days. A part of me feels like I’ve taken the easy way out; I don’t want to talk about Eric Garner, Michael Brown, or any of the other Black folks murdered by the police in recent months, hell, recent years.
I still don’t. Let me rephrase that. I can’t talk about them right now. My broken heart won’t let me.
Instead, I’ll post their names, and let you ponder on the state sanctioned violence that is being enacted whole scale on Black folks in the U.S. right now. It’s nothing new; but it does seem to be “trending” again in ways that I have to admit frighten me. I’ve never felt so unsafe in my entire life, and I’m afraid for everyone in this country that looks like me.
Still, I’m happy to see the recent protests going on all over the country, and the messages of support from our brothers and sisters around the world. Perhaps this is our next Civil Rights Movement. I hope so.
I’ll leave you with two images: the names of the murdered, and a song that embodies what a lot of us are feeling right now.
I’m cross-posting my latest blog from my other spot. I hope you enjoy it!
