I refuse to get older without the assistance of a sauna

My birthday is coming up in less than two weeks! If you’re in the NYC area, you’ve probably gotten an email from me (or twelve) listing all my various birthday events. I party hard! People always ask me: what do you want for your birthday? And usually I say “I dunno” because I pretty much […]

2012 Resolutions

2012 Resolutions

All the cool kids are doing it. 1. Write fiction every day. 2. Write a non-work, non-Tumblr blog post every day. I have 10 blogs. I should, like, post on them. 3. Manage my time. At all. 4. Get in better shape by exercising regularly and switching up my daily habits so I move more and […]

Intra-Community Behavior – How Do We Address Problems Constructively?

Intra-Community Behavior - How Do We Address Problems Constructively?

This was a very long comment on the post from yesterday. However, in writing it I realized that this discussion is separate but related, so I broke it out into its own post. This comment addresses some stuff across multiple comments over there plus some things from this discussion on the anon community. Just to […]

Community, Trust, Responsibility, Consequences

Community, Trust, Responsibility, Consequences

This post may be triggering for some as it contains discussions of rape, sexual assault, and community responses to such. I promised to write this post last week, but unfortunately preparations for BlogHer took up more spoons than I anticipated. Plus, I’ve been dealing with a lot of intense emotions around the issue and it […]

Today Marks The Beginning of my 33rd Year On This Earth

33! That’s all kinds of 3s, so this year is about to be extra special. *boogie down*

Tempest in da Bay Area

Tempest in da Bay Area

All right, folks. I will be in San Francisco this afternoon and hanging out in Mountain View until Friday. There are some plans afoot for Friday and Wednesday. Possibly something for tonight. But right now I’m honestly not sure how I’m getting from the airport to my hotel. At any rate, ping me on Facebook […]

In San Francisco Next Week

In San Francisco Next Week

Very quick: I’m going to be in San Francisco next week for a Google announcement. Work is flying me out there and paying for my hotel on Tuesday night. However, because of the cost, I’m flying back on Friday afternoon. So I’m looking for a place to stay Wednesday and Thursday night. I have to […]

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It- OW!

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It- OW!

Yesterday all of the news sources I knew of predicted that we’d get just 5 – 9 inches of snow overnight. Then  again, those same sources also said it wouldn’t start snowing until the afternoon. Judging by the inch of accumulation before I left the house at 9am, someone was clearly wrong. I woke up […]

End of Year Donating

End of Year Donating

A few years ago I read a post by Jed Hartman wherein he listed all of the various organizations and charities he donates money to, usually at the end of the year. I’ve rarely been in a financial position to be a generous donor — one of the reasons I volunteer my time, instead — […]

Zira’s Heart, Shannon’s Life Force, and Tempest’s Back

Zira's Heart, Shannon's Life Force, and Tempest's Back

Several bits of fictiony news for you! First, I’m experimenting with self-publishing short stories as eBooks just to see what the process is like and to feel out interest in this arena. I have no plans to completely abandon sending my stories out to magazines and such. But there are a few stories that I […]

My Back Is Crying

My Back Is Crying

As I mentioned previously, I am in need of a mattress. Not having found any other viable option for collecting money from folks who want to contribute to buying it for me, I’ll have to go with PayPal and just deal with the fees. Since I have a business account, they are unavoidable. *mutter* Hopefully whatever […]

My World Famous Risotto Recipe

My World Famous Risotto Recipe

I’m contributing risotto to Thanksgiving dinner, and I could not find my piece of paper with the recipe on it! Good thing I posted it online a couple of years ago. Here’s a repost of that post with not only the recipe but how I came to make the best risotto in the entire world. […]

5 Reasons To Support The Octavia E. Butler Memorial Scholarship

5 Reasons To Support The Octavia E. Butler Memorial Scholarship

There are just two days left in the fundraiser for the Octavia E. Butler scholarship. Over on the Carl Brandon blog I provided folks with 5 excellent reasons to support the scholarship either by buying tickets to win an eReader or autographed book or buy donating directly (as Jeff Vandermeer just did). Here’s a taste: […]

We are in the final days of the Butler Scholarship fundraising prize drawing! We have raised a lot of money! We need to raise more! Why? Well… In order to go to Clarion in San Diego, a student must come up with $4,957. In order to go to Clarion West in Seattle, a student must […]

Vitae

I'm a writer, most often committing acts of genre (fantasy, science fiction, and other stretches of the imagination). You can find my short stories in many and various magazines and anthologies and podcasts. In addition to being a writer I also engage in activism and fandom -- often both at once.
