Typewriter - tell me about it
There are a few answers in the original post! Here are the questions that didn't give me permission to unscreen:

I seem to remember a few years ago you talked about going to school for neuroscience. Would you still do that? Or would you keep up the path you're on of activism and writing? Or do you think you could balance all three?

I would love to balance all three! But I've come to the realization that I can't. Especially because writing is not just writing, it's editing and submitting and marketing and and and yes. And activism, the way I do it, is also fairly constant. So I've come to terms with the fact that, right now, I'm pretty much at capacity. Because also there's a lot going on right now that I've not posted about yet. My life has significantly changed trajectory over the last few months - all for the better, but it makes stuff hard to predict. For the new few years at least, I'll be very, very busy.

What do you want to be doing five years from now?

I would like to be less busy. *laugh*

Seriously, though, it's hard to define that in ways that are just about what I want to be doing. Because I want Elayna to be in college, I want Adam to keep on with his nonfiction writing (which he needs to tell you about!), I want feste_sylvain's schedule to not be making him crazy, I want sindrian's business to take off. I want everyone to be following their path.

For myself? I want to be well, or at least as well as I can be. I want Shayara to be out in the world and doing well, and I want to have written or be writing Cicatrix and Places You Haunt and the nonfiction book about dismantling rape culture. I want to be living in the Dream House and I want my bedroom to look like Inara's shuttle. And yes, I want to be less busy; I want to not have to hyperprogram my days. I want to be able to take my time.

My decorating philosophy, right there.

If Adam's doing nonfiction writing (and you too, if you're writing about dismantling rape culture--not to mention your poetry), then you may want to check out Sweet magazine <http://www.sweetlit.com>, which publishes poetry and nonfiction. It's a nonpaying market, but FWIW it's an e-zine I like, run by people I like and respect...
