Four-eyed bookword, tattooed queer, storyteller nomad mama to two unschooled earthlings, based in East Van, overlooking the shipyard cranes and always ready for the next most amazing giant tiny little big wonderful something to capture my attention.

Or:

When Carrie Mac was born, her right eye gawked off in one direction while her left eye looked the other way. Well meaning adults thought she was a changeling and so they wrapped her up and put her on the porch for the fairies to take back, please and thank you. It was snowing. It was dark. No fairies came. The same well meaning adults decided she'd catch her death out there. So they brought her in and kept her after all.

She's read millions of books, and has sat happily at the feat of a legion

We repair.

Yes, we do.

We repair our writing over and over, because if you work it over and over, damage happens.

Don’t toss your project and start something new.

Don’t ignore it.

Don’t hope that some literary tow truck will arrive from off-scene and haul it away for someone else to tinker with it.

Go to your toolbox (you already have one) and find your favourite wrench and get to it.

Do not pi...

There were quite a few good things going on in this book, so I am going to start with those.

10 Things I Can See from Here by Carrie Mac
"In my last review, I mentioned how it's hard for me to be fully enamored with YA fantasy and that contemporary YA is where it's at (at least for me). Well, 10 Things I Can See From Here just solidified this statement for me because it was such a g..." Read more of this review »

“Will you please take him outside for some fresh air? Go across the street and buy him a chocolate bar.'
She said it so formally, but instead of sounding polite, it sounded like Claire was really telling him to take Owen across the fucking street and get him a fucking chocolate bar, and, by the way, fuck you.”
Carrie Mac, 10 Things I Can See from Here

“I was astonished at what I could do. And I wondered what else I could do. Maybe I would always wear the heavy boots of anxiety and the prickly coat of worry, but maybe -- even still -- I could just be a person who belongs in the world, even if it's hard.”
Carrie Mac, 10 Things I Can See from Here

“What can I do?" Salix pulled away. "Can I make you a cup of tea? Want to go for a walk?"

"I just want to stop worrying so much!" I can't even do anything, so what's the point?"

"You told me that you can't really help it, right?" She wiped my tears with her shirt.

I nodded.

"So worry. Just go ahead and worry. Worry as hard as you can, and then keep worrying."

"That sounds awful."

"But if you can't stop worrying, you have to figure out how to worry and keep living, right? We need to find you a really, really big box."

"What for?"

"Not a box. A backpack."

"What?"

"For you to put your worries in, so that you can take them with you, and when you figure out how to not worry so much, you can get rid of them one at a time. And then the backpack will get lighter and lighter until you'll be so light you'll float off the ground."

I kissed her then, because there were no words for how much I liked her in that moment. Loved her, maybe.”
Carrie Mac, 10 Things I Can See from Here
