I Wrote About My Queerness

November 14, 2013 | 0 Comments

It’s very serious. Yes, I did. And it’s up on Luna Luna Magazine for the whole wide world to see. I don’t know why I still get so nervous about this. Someone reposted the link on Facebook and tagged my “personal” account–the one my family sees–and I [...continue...]

Let’s Talk About Posers (warning: RANT)

November 6, 2013 | 0 Comments

This picture kind of makes no sense but it made me go, “Heh.” Remember back in the late 90s when being called a poser was the ultimate insult? “You’re not really goth; you’re a poser!” Or whatever. Meaning that the thing you pretend you love is really just a [...continue...]

The Plaid Pencil Skirt

This morning, on my way to work, I noted near the end of my subway ride that some days one can leave the house, freshly showered and coffeed, feeling pretty damn good about the day ahead, but by the time one is midway through the commute, find that all that optimism, energy, and compassion toward [...continue...]

Despicable

I’m so upset right now. I marched straight home and fired up my laptop and now I’m sitting in front of it and I don’t know where to start. This is despicable. I just got back to my apartment after taking the subway home, like I always do. As I walked down a busy street away from [...continue...]

Links, links, so many links, it’s Sir Linksalot up in here! (Okay there are only two links.) 1) Hollywood, seriously. Really. You cast an actress to play Linda Lovelace who, in an interview with GQ, says about the movie Deep Throat, “There’s no point in watching the whole movie. [...continue...]

Scandal! Yawn!

I was talking to my parents this weekend about the awesomeness of the upcoming New York City election season. I’ve never been this excited about local elections. It’s like the sex-scandal election season. The cock-and-balls caucus. The personal-is-political philosophy become flesh. To [...continue...]

HIRE ME TO COPYEDIT YOUR DAMN BOOK

June 24, 2013 | 0 Comments

Ok, friends. Let’s have some real talk, shall we? I’m a publishing professional. I’ve worked in various parts of the publishing industry, performing various tasks, since I was in undergrad. I know my way around the writing process, the publishing process, and, most importantly for [...continue...]

“Why the change?”: Why do I need a reason for a haircut?

April 19, 2013 | 0 Comments

So I cut my hair off a few months ago. Last year, actually. During the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. My office in Manhattan had no electricity or phones for a week, so I had no day job. I had some free time on my hands. The subways weren’t back up and running yet, either, so it was almost [...continue...]

Need Cash, Will Copyedit

February 21, 2013 | 0 Comments

I wrote a book review recently that was less of a review and more of an appeal to people who love books to please abide by professional book-publishing standards before publishing books. It happens so often these days: everyone has a book in them, as the saying goes, and it’s easier than ever [...continue...]

A Rant

January 15, 2013 | 0 Comments

I had a conversation last week with Anna B. Volk about America’s fascination with understanding bad guys. It started with my fears about the upcoming live-action movie about Maleficent, the villainess from Sleeping Beauty. I’ve been a fan of Maleficent since I was a child because she [...continue...]
