It can be argued that these days leaving the house and attending a literary event is a radical act. So it is that tonight I will be getting dressed (!!!!) and leaving the house (OMG) to participate in Writ Large Press's DRUNKEN MASTERS. I'll be providing drunkity feedback, along with Wendy C. Ortizand Frederick Smith, and there will be some fantastic readers sharing their romance and sex writing. For more details, link in bio boo. Hope to see you there. 🌹🍆 💦 Also, image by one of my loves/obsessions Guy Bourdin.

I wrote about books I read this year, which included Jennifer Richter's poetry collection. I also highlighted work by Viet Thanh Nguyen, Robin Coste Lewis, Aisha Sabatini Sloan, Claudia Rankine and more. Link in bio. And thank you to my best ever Millions editor @lydiakiesling.

Ways to Survive No. 15: Civil Action. “What will be done in this administration will be done in our name. This is not the time for impotency. Civil action is suddenly synonymous with living.” (Claudia Rankine)

Ways to Survive No. 13: Take refuge in the places that vibe magic.

Ways to Survive No. 2: Speak. Be the Silence Breaker. "Our speaking out will permit other women to speak, until laws are changed and lives are saved and the world is altered forever...And the speaking will get easier and easier. And you will find you have fallen in love with your own vision, which you may never have realized you had. And you will lose some friends and lovers, and realize you don't miss them. And new ones will find you and cherish you. And you will still flirt and paint your nails, dress up and party, because, as I think Emma Goldman said, 'If I can't dance, I don't want to be part of your revolution.' And at last you'll know with surpassing certainty that only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth. And that is not speaking.” (Audre Lorde)

Ways to Survive No. 75: Call your reps. This is your land.

I found my outfit for the dungeon holiday party. Also, I think a book of cut-out paper fashion looks for Dommes (by Dommes) would be a pretty great holiday gift. Imagine the possibilities! #holidayseason #fashiongoals #giftideas Image by Erté

From Alexander Chee's facebook post:

Ok, the #taxbill just passed the Senate. Please stop acting as if this is over as we have a week at least while it goes back to the House and then back to the Senate before it goes to Trump. It is very, very important we react strongly to this vote, today, tomorrow, and not just to each other online. All reaction MUST be directed to your electeds. They don’t see your Facebook.
Your reaction will tell both chambers we're paying attention, and will not let this stand. If you are wondering what to do next, attached here are three scripts:
1. For those of you with GOP Senators
2. Those of you with Dem Senators
3. And then for calling your House members. Note: Blue state House Republicans will be unhappy with this bill because it raises their taxes (the bill is designed to attack blue states)—this makes them persuadable.

Your voices need to be furious, loud and unrelenting. Use them. Do not accept this as defeat.


Market Watch has developed a tax calculator using the House version, so you can see how your taxes will change under the House Plan passed last week, for added detail when you call. You can post the result, the scripts, and the calculator with #mytaxstory #taxbill #resist. https://www.calcxml.com/calculators/trump-tax-reform-calculator

Ways to Survive No. 8: Consider that the futures we dream are watching us. If we become very still, we can hear the futures saying "Don’t fret, dreamy spinning ones with water falling from your faces. It’s us you’re waiting for and we’re coming.” (Matthea Harvey) Image by Gertrude Abercrombie

Ways to Survive No. 52: During the final month of the year, spend a week in a cabin and write about winter.

Note: I will be doing this. Why yes, I am next leveling my hermitude.
