Hello everyone! I hope you’re doing well, or at least making your way through our strange delta-variant world in as healthy a way as possible. I have some really exciting news. I’ve been trying to figure out how to do a newsletter since I started this site. I love this journal as a means of expression. But there are a lot of exciting things about a newsletter that you don’t get with a journal.
I’ve struggled a lot with social media as of late. Sometimes, it’s just not a lot of fun. There’s so much division and acrimony and jockeying for position… it can just be exhausting. Places like Facebook are basically pay to play, which means in order to get any attention you have to pay for it. Even to people who “follow” or “like” your content. So I want to build something away from that. Something I control. Something I can be sure gets sent directly to you. That’s why this site exists, and why this newsletter exists.
Plus, in the future, it’s a way for me to share my work with you. A different way to publish fiction. I’m really excited for the possibilities, and the first issue will be coming soon. My commitment to you is to make the newsletter that’s worth getting. Some stuff, like my “Things I Greatly Enjoyed” stuff will move to the newsletter. You’ll see me less on social media (except Instagram, that’s always fun for me), and putting more time into the newsletter.
Thanks for everyone who has subscribed already. Much more to come!
