okay. so i'm really nervous to do this, mostly because i don't know if anyone really cares enough to ask questions about me. but i figure that even if i only get, like, three questions it could be fun to talk a bit about myself? the original plan was to do this on my birthday, which was around two weeks ago, but i procrastinated so: here it is now.
to be honest for how nervous i am about this i'm also quite excited! i love reading through q&a's and thinking about how i would answer the questions.
i also wanted to say, i know that i don't really talk about comments or followers or mentions nearly enough but: thank you so so much for the support. it makes my day, truly. i can't ever express how grateful i am that people care? about my writing? i can't wrap my head around it. thank you.
i wanted to specifically thank Anha for her consistent support, she's literally the reason i finally felt confident enough to start submitting to magazines and contests. she found me in (get this) 2018!! literally wayyyy back when i was publishing pieces like "heritage." that's so crazy to me. also a bit embarrassing because i try to forget that era of my writing ever happened but i digress.
she's incredible: not only is she a fantastic writer who boggles my mind with every post, she's also such a core part of this community and selflessly compiles WTW highlights every! single! month! like clockwork. insane.
This work is one of my favourites of hers (it gives me gay vibes- oop) as well as this piece, and this one (meg march? during my pride month? the flavour) but i suggest taking the time to read through her portfolio because it's ART. and when i say i "suggest" i mean i'm actually holding you at gunpoint right now. do it. do it.
okay, lemme shut up and let's go. ask me anything! I'll probably divide the questions into 2 categories: personal and writing-related. but i guess we'll see, yeah?
sorry about this being really long and ranty. i'm just nervous and word-vomiting at this point.
if this flops i'll unpublish it and we can pretend it never happened! xx
