I've gotten this question several times, so I figured I'd answer it here.

I have a heart for healing the rifts, wherever they may be. How many times do you hear of women trying out Sapphic relations in college, yet not so much the men? How many times do you see society accepting, not even blinking, when women hug and kiss, yet not so much the men? When's the last time you saw hetero Jack running off to the rest room with hetero Chuck? People are used to seeing butch, feminist women in places of business and academia, and that's perfectly fine with me. In fact I'm thrilled. I'm as fiercely feminist as they come, and I can be a real bad-ass bitch when I need to be. Strong women are generally accepted, yet highly sensitive individuals born with outies instead of innies are still thought most commonly to simply be gay. They've only just now added the T in LGBT, and sadly, many Cisters are still treating TransLesbians almost as untouchables. I've been building awareness of these issues, and by now the pendulum is finally swinging again in the opposite direction. I'm working on a book about a TransGender man living in apparently a hot woman's body, who's pissed off at the glass ceiling at work where they only see his big boobs and give him menial tasks like fetching coffee. He says he ought to wear his strap-on to work so they'd take him seriously. I tend to defend the oppressed, whoever they are. So yeah, I have a heart for them. And I definitely have a heart for you as an individual. Stay tuned for a new gender definition coming up in a new book called 'Church Work'. No spoilers.(less)

What's that?

Seriously, it's like prayer. John Wimber once said, a bit tongue in cheek, that if you can't pray, talk to God about it. The same is true about writing. Prophecy is not talking for God. It's listening to God. Imagine a romantic date where the bride never shuts up, always yacking at the bridegroom, never listening to him. When it comes to writing, paying too much attention to the world is like always talking. Let the well-water come up within you, from deep within. The first step in knowing your heart is allowing your brain to recognize that it's due for an update from within, from your spirit. Relax. Breathe. Don't even try to clear your mind. Just shift into neutral. If you're afraid of hearing the wrong voices, pray about that, then trust Great Spirit that He heard you. You may find yourself weeping. Sometimes we run from our emotions. Let them out. Writing can be more personal than sex. That's why some write steamy stuff, to get more intimate. Let it happen. Let it out.(less)

HEA and the Mandella* effect

I've been thinking a lot about HEA, trauma and writing.

My world view is a lot more convoluted and complex than what the Sunday school felt boards and the board room white boards depict.

In a perfect world, people could seek to read like little kids, never having had any trauma, looking to learn, curious about the human condition. And nothing they read could place them any closer to any universe con Read more of this blog post »
