Sharing WIPs (works in progress) can be so very fun! On this lovely blog hop, enjoy a bunch of authors sharing excerpts of what they're working on- get ready to add some great books to your TBR, once the author publishes :) Although occasionally you may find an author sharing a published work. Give 'em a break- these may just be roughly edited- but please do leave a comment! We authors like to know we're going in a good direction.
Last week was bad- felt sick, Master did not so great in a miniature wargame tournament and His babbling was a downer. But I'm here with te next piece of "What if she was born a he?" If you'd like to re-read Chyna's email to me (I still giggle at how some missed that this was a fictional pondering, not an actual woman interested in me, the first time I shared it on my old blog.)
I read the email once, twice, again and again. Ms. Right? Has Ms. Right finally reached out, because I'm too much a chicken shit to do so, because in my writing I can be braver that I often feel?
Chyna Smith, she wrote. She'll explain. Gods, Chyna. Poor puppy Chyna might be confused if I fell in lust, love with a woman by the same name as her.
Of course, Facebook is already running on my computer; how often isn't my lifeline to the world outside miserable Midland not running? I quickly get to her profile and start to scroll down her timeline. Wow, all the pictures, blog posts of mine shared onto her timeline. How'd I miss that she'd started following me?
I scroll back up. Stop to look at the cover photo, the profile picture. Her eyes shine out from beneath her fringe of black bangs; I think of Ally Sheedy in "The Breakfast Club" for a moment. Then my gaze is drawn to the cover photo. The elaborate grouping of symbols of queerness, gender fluidity, Pride. Even a little picture of the Bear Pride and Leather Pride flags. Wow!
I click on the "Friends" button and then select "send friend request." That done, I can't help but spend some more time on her timeline.
What is this? The "Wipeout Transphobia" page. She's liked it too? Good to know that she shouldn't be freaked out by Lady Audrey once she makes her appearance in Vala's Story.
Time to get back to reading "The Feminist Porn Book." I'll have to go back when I buy this book for my Kindle and mark the essays that piss me off for their failure to rise above limiting feminist judgmentalism.
