I wrote books set in spring and winter in Portland, but now I need to write a slasher mystery/horror story and set it in the dead of summer so I can capitalize on the creeptastic ambiance we got going on thanks to all the fires.

Believe it or not, most people named something non-fiction (whut?), stuff about inner peace and dealing w/ death. There was some talk about Heart of Darkness (nope) and War and Peace (really?), but my fave was a girl who recommended a graphic novel series called Bitch Planet :)

Nah, this is a super people-helping volunteer group where anyone would have felt comfortable saying anything. One guy said car magazines. I think that people who don't waste all their time on Twitter have managed to find the time to read more books! :)

Those bombs Saudi Arabia dropped on Yemeni children, Yemeni food supplies to accelerate famine? Those were made by Lockheed-Martin, one of my opponent’s top donors. In 2016, he voted to continue the sale of those same bombs to Saudi Arabia. Money. Does. Buy. Votes.

In case you need a reminder that the views in your Twitter feed do not necessarily represent the views of the general population: I spent the day with 22 predominantly liberal professional ppl, ages 21-65. We each had to name our favorite book. Not one person said Harry Potter.

Normally I am so physically and/or mentally exhausted and/or hot that I'm just like GOOD NIGHT WORLD! But not last night. Too many racing thoughts, I think. And then my sweet baby cats got me up extra early, but I am doing okay, surprisingly :)

HOW PEOPLE THINK WRITING WORKS: Sit down and write HOW WRITING ACTUALLY WORKS: Sit down, despair, check social media, get a snack, maybe a drink, maybe a *REAL* drink, check email, deep clean the oven, check deadline, panic, write

My sister sent me this gif of a baby puffin named Grace. She's sleeping right now (the puffin, not my sister), but the burrow cam is here, for future reference :)

IDK about furniture, but fashion yes :) I just don't get how people making millions of dollars wouldn't WANT to pay more taxes. Don't they ever want to leave their penthouses and walk the regular Earth? More fun down here when all the people and infrastructure aren't broken :P
