TTT: Why I Love Reading

This is somehow going to be the hardest That Artsy Reader Girl topic ever. It shouldn’t be because there are so many reasons why I love reading, but that’s it right there, that’s why it’s the hardest. How do you narrow down something so monumental into ten reasons? And they’re definitely not going to be…

TTT: More Queer Characters in Fantasy

Are you sick of me talking about queer characters in fantasy yet? We’ve already discussed why homophobia in fantasy doesn’t make sense, plus chatted about some of my favorite queer fantasy MCs, and, today, we’re here to talk about why there should be more queer characters in fantasy.

TTT: Facts About My Writing

Sometimes I write down ideas for posts, but I don’t actually write down anything except facts about my writing, and then when it comes time to write the actual post, I’m just sitting here blankly, like, what the hell does that even mean? I have a vague sense of what I was intending for this…

TTT: Favorite Settings

Sometimes I come up with these grand ideas like figure out what your ten favorite settings are, and I just want to throttle past!Mary. Like, bro. Chill the heck out.
