I lost NaNoWriMo, but the challenge to write everyday led me to my next writing project. For now, here are some female links:
- A concept from physics is applied to the season of regaining female power.
- How do we create art about our bodies that subvert the male gaze?
My opinion is that we can’t use the master’s tools. At the end of the day the artist’s intention is lost in perception, and it will still be put through the male gaze. But these artists are so good they’re changing my mind.
- The Takedown is home. As I have tweeted,
Learning from Uma Thurman to take my time, and also focusing on transitioning to a new life stage. But #metoo.
And when I’m ready, some monsters are going to lose the shadows from which they hide. https://t.co/83UrbuExJ8

- And lastly, this study on motherhood regret struck a chord with me. I need more time to digest the insights before I express them. After all, I have yet to write a story of birth.
