May I Live On In Love and Literature

My first grant!!!

I want to thank the Alberta Foundation for the Arts for their Literary Individual Project Funding Grant!

Thanks to them, I can continue to grow and learn as a writer- and above all, a person.

I so appreciate this encouragement, validation, and acceptance.

We all deserve abundance. We’re here to follow our dreams, and create a better reality- not only for us, but everyone.

I am so grateful to share more of my words with the world.

Thank you: to the Foundation, my family, friends, my partner, and of course, the universe. I’m so thankful for every damn minute within this exceptional, insane subjectivity.

Above all, thank YOU! (For being here.)

Kickstarter Update: Day 11

“When do I become who I am?”

Simple Creatures

All my life, I wanted to skip to the finish line.

That magical age where I “made it”, and thus, things made sense.

The finish line is an illusion.

Life is all journey, no destination.

There’s no pinnacle or project that will solve everything.

But every project is worth something.

This short film probably won’t change the world. But it could change a person, or at least their day, for the better.

That’s why we create.

That’s what makes the journey worth it.

We’ve reached our fundraising goal!

Any extra (apart from a $200 emergency fund) will be donated to sex worker organizations.

Donate here.

My First Print Review

It’s the second week of our Kickstarter campaign, and we’ve almost reached the goal!

To celebrate, I’ve released a reading of a fantastic Sluts and Whores review by Justin Bookworm at Razorcake magazine.

All a writer can ever hope for is to be understood.

This review gave me that. 💕

Kickstarter Update: Day 2

Didn’t have a dime but I always had a vision.”

-Panic at the Disco

Money’s a weird one for me.

I long for riches so I can share them.

Otherwise, what’s the point?

I crave independence, but can’t make this film on my own.

Excellence demands a team.

Collaborators deserve compensation.

One day, I’ll give money away.

For now, I have to ask for it.
And that’s okay.

On the 2nd day of our campaign, we’re at 48% of our goal!

Thank you for helping make this movie happen!

Podcast: The Bed Post

OMG!! It’s here!!

Listen while the incredible Lady Pim and I discuss shadow, shame, and empowerment!

Highlights:

“Embrace your own discomfort.”

“I’ve always wanted my writing to be these little postmarks that I leave behind in the world to encourage people to keep going, and keep exploring.”

“Sex workers are secret keepers.”

“The most conscious writers approach their work as exorcism of the Self.”
