thinking about incorporating difficult comments into writing and Octavia Butler
Okay okay wow. First of all, this thing you mentioned, writing down everything you've done so far, is the only thing keeping me sane this year. I write down every article I write and every book I read and all the stuff I bake. I like having proof that I lived and that I made it through the hectic weeks.
Also, Octavia Butler? Yes please! I didn't actually read what you wrote (wanted to avoid spoilers) but I read Wild Seed earlier this year and it was stunning.
