I don’t know what’s going on exactly, but I’ve been getting a lot of hits on my blog ever since I posted that list of journals that focus on underrepresented voices. Which is great! I’m really happy people are paying attention to that, above all else. Not only that, but I’ve also gotten emails from editors and teachers thanking me for putting the list together. I got an email today saying that my post appeared in The Review Review newsletter, so maybe that’s what set it off.
Also good: Today, Cartridge Lit published a poem of mine. It’s inspired by the videogame Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3, which I happily sunk 100+ hours into. And I still get cravings to play more.
I have a bigger desk at work now. Mine was makeshift before, out in the open and with everyone bumping into me as they walked by. They had a coworker move to another room and I took her spot. It’s very spacious and I can breathe. I’m almost done with my probation period, when I’ll be able to opt into getting much better insurance and benefits. This is nice. My next goal is a place of my own.
You know, I can never imagine myself living in a house? Who would want that? Well, apparently not reclusive writers who refuse to give their family grandchildren. I don’t want to take care of a house. I want a small space for my bookshelves and game systems. I’d only want a house to have a vegetable garden.
