    When will body positivity meet literary diversity?

    Diversity is shaping up to be the word of the decade. From the White House to the Oscars to literature, it’s a hot topic. As it should be. As both an author and reader, I’m taking steps to curb the gross bias against non-white, non-hetero, and disabled people in our literature. I’m reading more diverse (especially diverse authors) and being far more conscious of the diversity in my own writing than I ever have before, because I have come to see how much REPRESENTATION MATTERS.

    Writing Wednesday – Pay it Forward

    Congratulations to all NaNoWriMo finishers!!   It’s been a couple of weeks, so hopefully the dust has settled and you have caught up on sleep and real life and everything you let slide while you were furiously typing away.  And maybe you’re asking yourself, “Okay, I finished a book…now what?”  Or maybe you’re a veteran and already working on rewrites.  Either way, you would be crazy not to take me up on this.
