Yes, I’m writing about writing.
Sometime this coming week, my debut column, ‘Gendering Outside the Lines’, will be published on SimplySxy, a web magazine featuring articles on Sex and Sexuality. Â I’d never heard of them before they invited me to contribute on topics related to gender identity and transitioning. Â There have been some trans* related posts there, but not much about gender identity and they don’t have a lot of presence from gender minorities. Â I’m hoping to help change that.
I’ve had a couple of pieces post on elephant journal, another online magazine devoted to mindful living. Â I have also had two rejected, though one of those came with some feedback and an invitation to resubmit. Â I’m working on another piece for them, which I should be ready to submit soon.
My story about a young butch and a slightly older co-worker will be a part of the anthology, Me and My Boi, which is still slated to publish this September. Â Fingers crossed.
And I am working on at least one, if not two, potential submissions for Best Lesbian Erotica 2016, which I’m feeling optimistic about.
Still in the works: Â my e-book which has been put off many times. Â I do have cover art for it now, and just need one final story to cap it off. Â Maybe I’ll have time this coming week to think about that project. Â We’ll see.
And my novel… sigh. Â It’ll happen, when it happens, when other projects become less compelling, I suppose. Â I just have to roll with it.
Finally, not a writing piece but a piece I was interviewed for: Â Slate magazine writer Vanessa Vitiello UrquhartÂ wrote a piece on Genderqueer identities (3/24/2015). Â Check it out and if you’re brave, write a complementary comment. Â Maybe we can get more articles out there on real life non-binary and genderqueer people.
