About this journal  
I write stuff. And here, I mostly write about writing stuff and about writing-related issues. I've been posting poems, lately, and am likely to keep doing so.

Do feel free to friend me -- I shall be thrilled*. And do feel free to unfriend me -- I shall not be hurt. Though, if you are a real-life friend I'd like to know why -- because if I hurt your feelings I'd like to mend that, and if I didn't I'd like not to have to fret :)

I'd also love it to pieces if you tell me a bit about yourself, if I'm unlikely to know you from your lj name (my lj powers are weak). At some point when I'm finding it a bit less overwhelming, I'll be friending people back; I just haven't the focus to figure it all out just now.

I think that's everything for now :)

* ETA: Though, please read this before deciding if you want to friend me, because I am not necessarily going to make you comfortable, and I am entirely out of patience with so-called allies who only want validation & cookies.

(Maybe? I tend to go to YA panels at cons, so it's quite likely.)

Oh, wow. Good luck! I might end up doing a dissertation, but as I'm just heading off to college in the fall it's a little early to start planning that, I guess. This novel actually was begun while I should have been studying for IB tests--I would get up at five in the morning and write just to keep myself sane. I don't think that sort of thing would work for everyone, though.

Your friend's essay sounds cool, too.

(This panel had Sharyn November, Tamora Pierce, Sarah Beth Durst and Mary Anne Mohanraj (as moderator) on it, if I remember right.)

And thanks for the luck! (I'll need it). But dissertations eat novels, and fewer people will ever read 'em, so I advise against PhD programs unless they're at least as compelling as writing :)

I remember my friend's essay being pretty eye-opening for me. And now she's a professional dancer/choreographer doing fusion Indian-classical dance, so she has in general been something of an inspiration to me (encouraging me not to be scared to be weird).
