Taking Pride in my Writing

Hey y'all!

Most of y'all know I write GLBTQ fiction. I write het, as well, because I believe love is love, but there's a special place in my heart for m/m, f/f and menage. Why? Because I know you love who you love, and I believe that everyone should see themselves reflected in a love story.

Someone asked me the other day why I didn't seem to be all over Pride month. Frankly, I kinda forget there's a special month for that, as I celebrate pride every day! I tend to forget that not everyone is rainbow ready out there. So, every once in awhile it's good when something jolts me out of my, shall we call it complacency?

The recent SCOTUS decisions did that. While I don't live in a state with gay marriage laws, I do live in one that will recognize a marriage from another state. This means my girl and I could get married now. That? Rocks.

Makes me want to write a gay marriage story.

What are you doing for Pride?

Art reflecting life

I've been making art plans lately.

I'm not the world's best painter or sculptor, but I love to make art. Artist trading cards. Stitching. Gourd dolls.

A lot of times, I like my art to reflect what's going on in my life. Right now, I'm all about looking back over the last few years and getting rid of the stuff that doesn't give me joy. I need to slough off the false impressions of myself that I've let build up. I need to work on the things I don't like about myself. They're always the things I like least about other people, and I've had a lot of time lately to see what those things are.

My latest canvas is called "forgiveness doesn't come with a debt"

y'all just wait until I start taking pictures!

In the meantime, did y'all go get Fever? It's a western anthology from TQ
