Hi everyone, with the end of the year I wanted to share with you all my year in books! It’ll be a post, maybe a couple more on what I read this past year, and mainly the books I loved the most. I’m thinking about doing some highlights as well, for indie authors and thought… Read More New blog series category
I want to talk to you guys about sensory processing, mostly about sensory sensitivity and its effects on me as an autistic person. Not that I can’t shut up about myself, but I hope that it might help others. In no way am I an expert, except on my own experience so, there’s that. So… Read More Sensory processing, stimming, and self-regulation
Representation of marginalized identities in media is very important to me. I’m very passionate about it, specifically about having representation that doesn’t further harmful stereotypes and tropes and is well developed, well thought through, and respectful to the actual people it affects. That’s what I call good representation. Some years ago I thought I wanted… Read More Good vs Bad Representation
There’s no time like the present to talk about diversity and representation! Though it may seem like we’ve been over this already, it’s been made clear to me that we still need to have this talk, because some important factors are overestimated or missing. I’m talking about good intentions, respect, and actually caring. And I… Read More Diversity & Representation series
Well well well, turns out I have way too much to blog about. Since I’m a mess, I will be posting whatever comes to mind and I have the time and energy to write for. If you’re curious and haven’t seen any related posts to what I blog about, I write about mental health (particularly… Read More Announcement
I’ve been working on my worldbuilding for the same world for a couple of years now. It evolved from another WIP I never finished and ended up shelving after trying to rewrite it several times. I just wasn’t ready for it I think, but because of it, I do have this universe now. I have… Read More Some tips on worldbuilding
Just passed 10.000 words written this month. Finally! It’s been slow, and the only reason why my numbers are that high is because over half of it was me working on my worldbuilding (6300w). I count these because while they aren’t part of a draft, they are very much needed to make my fiction be… Read More Writing progress update: March W21
Happy Autism Awareness Month! This is a good reminder that it’s not actually awareness we’re fighting for now. We need acceptance! So this month I will be talking about being Autistic on here. There will be mentions of things I (and I guess others) struggle with like ableism, masking, etc. But I will work to… Read More April Autism Awareness Month!
There’s nothing like thinking you’re coping with your issues or situation and finding out you were SO wrong. I’ve been down that rabbit hole and it was as you expect one hell of a ride. Hellish. Because I’m not an omniscient narrator and life isn’t fiction I don’t have all the answers and only know… Read More Am I doing this “coping” thing right?
Sometimes it’s hard not to compare yourself with others. To not have expectations and wish to succeed at something terribly hard, which others take for granted, but it’s SUCH a LONG journey. I can be impatient sometimes too. And you now, writers can get it bad with the imposter syndrome stuff. But when you’re disabled… Read More Don’t compare yourself to others
