Lessons I’m learning while writing my novel: In order for the love interest to be a legitimate option for the protagonist and justify a true “love story” they must do something extraordinary for them. Then, and only then, does “falling in love” make sense. If only this were true in real life.
Meghan Trainor - All About That Bass
I’m all about this song!
All of my fellow fellows have flown away, and I am left with a fine glittering mist of inspiration and the bright blue memory that God lives in peculiar queer bodies that dance beyond gender and identity. And even though they are gone, like Noah set to sea collecting poems and parables two by two, I am not alone.
I’m back in magazines! I was a columnist for HIV Plus Magazine a few years ago, and it was one of the joys of my life to be able to share and inspire a little piece of the world. And I now have that opportunity again! A&U Magazine is a brilliant literary magazine that deals with HIV and Culture, and I have followed them for years. I submitted a piece to them a few months ago about dating and serodiscordanacy and they invited me to be a regular contributor… and I am soooo Proud! make sure to check in on the website regularly, and to pick up the magazine where you find it. My column is called “Brave New World!” Let me know what you think!
