Not till I was actually in grad school. I went to do a PhD at ugrad prof’s suggestion & thought it was a great idea bec the stipend was the same as I’d been making as a nanny, but for reading! Got to grad school and realized “oooh these ppl all came here to become *professors*”😅

By all means, post your daily writing output, but sometimes we delete more than we create, and that can be progress too.

Check w your editor on this at the time you sign the contract w them as it can really vary from person to person! For my clients, it can be a 3 month wait for a new time slot if the original deadline is missed :(

I’ve said it before, will say it again: In book publishing, it is not in your interest to respond to peer reviewers’ comments on a point-by-point basis. You’ll inevitably come off as defensive. Better to synthesize their feedback to show how you’ll produce a better text.

My dad's cousin (like an aunt to me), who's worked many years on a factory assembly line, read my whole dissertation. At a family event she came to me with many questions to discuss about activist rhetorics. Reminder that intellectual work happens outside academia all the time.❤️

Gnight. You burn with a nameless yearning. Your candle has both ends burning. You learn to be more discerning. You rest & the earth keeps turning.

Atonement. I can’t even remember how it ended, just that I hated it

But that same image, we ourselves see in all rivers and oceans. It is the image of the ungraspable phantom of life

Gmorning. You burn with a nameless yearning. Your candle has both ends burning. Your heart & your mind are churning. You’re learning; you’re always learning.

How would the culture of academic conferences shift if instead of listing degrees, status, honours & publications for our biographies we shared about the communities that got us here, the elders, colleagues those we have met, who have influenced our lives—not just our “work”?
