Please, with the Dreamwidths.

Sup, LJ. I has a Dreamwidth. How do I make y'all add me there? I currently expect to import my years of crap, back it all up, and then delete everything from LJ, just keeping this account to read and hang out in awesome communities.

This is the DW: http://theoryofgravity.dreamwidth.org/

I don't really anticipate posting there any more often than I do here, but I would be very sad to lose touch with those of you hightailing it out of LJ.

It's been a week.

Hello LiveJournal!

I noticed recently that LoudTwitter has stopped shipping Twitter updates here, probably to the relief of many. I still check in here and read y'all a couple times a week, but in my constant uptick in busy-ness it's been difficult to be as engaged on LJ as I've historically been, especially having taken an extended leave of absence as Fats mod.

So! The important bit of news: I am writing a book, for The Feminist Press. I know, it's about time. My deadline is technically March 1 but my plan is to get it done by early December, because I know I can, and because the earlier I deliver, the better my chances of seeing it on shelves next fall. So now I have to get on a strict writing schedule, which I'm actually looking forward to.

This is where you can find me:
Facebook (and if we are not Facebook friends, please add me!)

That's it. Hope y'all are well, those of you still around. xo

NYC crash space, & a new blog post.

1. SO! If D and I were coming to NYC next month, would anyone be willing & able to put us up for a night? D would be meeting with a networking contact and I would be, well, looking to visit as many of my beloved NYC friends as possible. Let me know.

2. I rarely think of individual people when I'm writing something, but during both the events described and the writing after, I kept thinking of susanstinson, for reasons that may be obvious to anyone who knows her work. The post is here.

3. Recommend to me some Etsy artists (or artists anywhere, really) selling 5x7 prints, please? When we moved in to the condo, D "claimed" a certain percentage of wall space for hanging art of his choosing. Four years later, those walls are still blank, and I'm taking them back. I've had a bunch of really nice frames matted to 5x7 for months, which I bought very inexpensively, but I need art to put inside them. Thanks y'all!
