That said, an outline is very far away from a completed novel, so who knows what the future will bring, and currently I'm working on other projects. Thanks so much for asking, and depending on interest an Unkindness, I will give it more thought in the future!(less)

“I am a boy and a girl and a witch all wrapped into one very strange, flimsy, indecisive body. Do you think my body couldn't decide what it wanted to be?”
Rivers Solomon, An Unkindness of Ghosts

“Pretty was a strange thing to concern oneself over. Pretty was subjective and fallacious.”
Rivers Solomon, An Unkindness of Ghosts

“Aye. You gender-malcontent. You otherling,” she said, the fog of anesthesia wearing off. She could see him clearly now. The curl of his lashes. The white flecks of skin over his dry lips. “Me too. I am a boy and a girl and a witch all wrapped into one very strange, flimsy, indecisive body. Do you think my body couldn’t decide what it wanted to be?” “I think it doesn’t matter because we get to decide what our bodies are or are not,” he answered. Aster sat up, and Theo helped her prop two pillows beneath her head. “Is that so? Then I am magic. I say it, therefore it is true,” she said.”
Rivers Solomon, An Unkindness of Ghosts

“A child may not know how to feed itself, or what to eat, yet it knows hunger.”
Daniel Keyes, Flowers for Algernon

“I see now that the path I choose through the maze makes me what I am. I am not only a thing, but also a way of being—one of many ways—and knowing the paths I have followed and the ones left to take will help me understand what I am becoming.”
Daniel Keyes, Flowers for Algernon
