TAG: Mid-Year Freakout!

I don’t know if I would call this a “freakout” since I’m feeling pretty chill about my reading this year. It’s definitely way down as compared to usual, but I’ve found a steady rhythm that works for me this year. At the time of this being drafted, I’ve read 50 books (WOOOOOOO), which means I’m […]

TTT: Favorite LGBTQIA+ Movies/TV Shows

We’ve talked about so many lovely things this month! I was going to say that I wish we had time to also talk about my favorite LGBTQIA+ characters, and then I remembered that every day can be a queer day, so I’ll just save that for later. Alas, this is the last queer-specific TTT post […]

Why I Write Queer Characters

When I was twelve, I went to see Tracy Chapman live with my best friend. We were twelve and excited, so we were holding hands to avoid getting lost in the crowd. “You shouldn’t do that,” someone said, indicating our hands, “People will think you’re a lesbian.” MY KING Look, there’s a lot to break […]

TTT: Books to Reread

TTT: Favorite LGBTQIA+ Books

HAPPY PRIDE! I’m going to keep shouting it every day all day, and today, specifically, we’re going to talk about my favorite LGBTQIA+ books. There are a lot that I haven’t read, and a lot that are written by straight white people, and I am working on reading more #ownvoices rather than just the ones […]

Fanfiction is Worthy

When I was considering posts for pride, I was originally going to scrap this one for later, but, in all honesty, fanfiction is what first opened up the queer community for me, so it feels like the perfect discussion post to kick off celebrations. I’m going to talk a bunch about my history with fanfiction […]

May Wrap-Up

This was another difficult month mentally, so my reading & writing suffered for the first half, and then I definitely felt an uptick in mood about halfway through the month, so that’s probably reflected below, but still. This whole being a person thing is just really hard sometimes. Mini Book Reviews Seven Endless Forests | […]
