When was the last time you updated your portfolio's Biography? Just go to your port, click on the Biography tab, and go to town! Let everyone know a little more about who you are!
Why am I bringing this up? I'll be working on something new very, very soon. But you'll hafta stay tuned for the updates (as few and far between as they may sometimes be). Plus, I had to change up a couple links and add a few more.
Also, don't forget...the Pre-Quills are now less than a week away! Friday, May 14th at 5pm WDC time!! Watch some of your favorite WDC celebrities make asses out of themselves entertain you while announcing finalists for most categories, along with the winners of a couple others! And if you wanna be a full-on participant, get at my homie Elle so she can get you the Zoom link! Otherwise, watch the newsfeed for the live stream, or later on for the YouTube rebroadcast at your leisure.
And what kind of newsfeed post of mine would this be if I didn't shout out a couple friends?
Welcome Sisco ~ Back! back in a bigtime way and get your friends some tix!
Looking forward to entering this again on a regular basis!
And my mans Andre is looking for more hijinks at my favorite WDC watering hole...
Enjoy your weekend y'all!!
Thanks, anonymous GP Prankster!
A fitting gif, since I'm also binge-watching Schitt's Creek before I go to sleep each night lately.
Besides reversing the order and doing some final edits, I think I'm wrapping up my work-in-progress poetry collection, "World By Design" . It's taken me longer than I thought to get through, between surgery and a brain-stifling pandemic we've all had to deal with. Some of you have dealt with it better than others, and by others I mean me. It's time to find some newfangled inspiration and write about something more refreshing...I've only been doing this thing since October of 2017 and I've personally been through a whole lot of change since then.
I also wasn't gonna say anything, but soon starts the editing phase again. I almost feel like I haven't left it since Mutants came out; maybe I'm still living on PT (Pandemic Time). But an indie UK press house I follow, Hedgehog Poetry, has open submissions through the end of this month for their Full Fat Quatre collection series. "World By Design" in some form will be entered once I get off my ass and start dropping it into a Word doc. Word.
And yo, writing isn't always a competition...I encourage all y'all to enter. Hedgehog has turned out some excellent poets over the last couple years. I can definitely vouch for their excellency.
So, the whole point of this post was to highlight the fact that I've added a new entry to my book, "World By Design" : "What You Want It To Be" . It honestly came to me once I decided I was going to do all this but had taken my sleep meds. Banged it out real quick and had a very well-deserved fitful night of sleep.
Gotta shout out some friends while I'm here, right?
Don't be like me!! Write funny poems!
This is also not me. I rock the e like my life depends on it.
Y'all already know my homie Lilli rocks this.
And a special shout out to y'all NaNo warriors!
Big ups to you badasses for keepin' on!
what do we have to lose?
|Congrats on your new President. First step!! |
What does Pepe Silvia have to do to win this election?!
It's easy to say this is satire.
But it's not.
I know most of you already have your minds made up. And if you don't, do you have space under the rock you're living?
McSweeney's is a great little humor site, but damn if they're not also keeping track of what's going on in the 4-year panic attack we've been living under. Lest you forget the horrors , the cruelties, collusions, corruptions, and crimes are all documented here.
I hate talking about politics, because of how divided the US has become. But if you're voting for Trump, feel free to unfollow and/or block me. I can't live another four more years in an America I didn't grow up in. United we stand, divided we fall. I don't need the support of people who support a white supremacist, racist, misogynist, clueless- the list goes on and on- Russian puppet who has no concern for any of us, regardless of which side of the aisle you're on. If you wanna vote against your own interests, that's your business, but for some of us it could really mean life or death. And I'm sorry if you're too shallow to see it that way, but it's true. And I'm also sorry if facts don't mean anything to you, but there's no way I'm gonna make you flip the switch if you can't see the light.
Vote like your life depends on it.
because to some of us, it does.
