I’ve been doing a bit of work the past few months that I’m pleased to talk about, such as the release of Totally Engaged, the 2021 edition of Interim Goddess of Love, and a new short book Your Place Next Year. These projects were very nice to me, if that’s a thing I can even explain. Some books might feel like such an effort to put together and release, and I wonder if I’ve managed to adjust to the current time, or the projects adjusted to me. These stories and projects are, and continue to be, happy things that happen to my day or week or month, and while I call them “work” they don’t feel like that. Then before I know it, October (the time for FeelsFest) has come along and I almost forgot that I have new “work” to “promote.” (Even “promoting” doesn’t seem like the right word for it…because it’s not like there’s a plan or an ad budget haha.)
I’m happy that other authors in the community have new books and stories we can be excited about. I’m glad we have FeelsFest and all our online channels as spaces to celebrate. In terms of creating, we who write and release books online have managed to keep creating (if we want to), but I’m also thinking about our friends in theater and film, and other areas of this corner of our industry. Can we do more? And how?
Anyway—I hope you watch the broadcast on October 23 and be part of this! Let’s help each other create all these things.
