I'm begging. Ego ain't it. LOL coming from a Leo rising?! The movement doesn't need 17 more superheros it needs to spread the existing organizer work & finances among 17 times more people.

This. And if you dont live in a voter-suppressed state, pick one and find organizations to help.
Okay I RTed this BUT as someone working with 6+ local campaigns and supporting some statewides Im begging folks: get involved now. Right now. The work must start NOW, not in September, not in October.

Re:LRT Given how long most of these investigations take, and how theyre kept confidential, it is not impossible that J**** K*tz said disgusting things in order to make himself a conservative cause celebre knowing what was coming down.
I'm angry (and agitated) with the NYT because they continue to imply Katz was fired because Princeton is "woke" when he was fired because he's a 52 yo Professor pursuing (and lying about) relationships with undergraduate students.

But what about the echo chamber?? I mean sure I could spend my day being yelled at by an anonymous account called TruthWarrior937362 in the hope that this would somehow enrich my intellectual life or alternatively I could read a book

CW: CSA. I got my first period when I was nine years old. All the adults I knew and trusted promptly told me I was a woman now, and could be a mommy. I was NINE. My Little Pony and Friends was my favorite show. I had a crush on Scott Grimes in CRITTERS.

I wrote a thread about this before but also remember: Millionaires may make their money by the rules but all billionaires -- all of them -- are agents of chaos. They have nothing but contempt for existing systems. So they spin their rebellion as "disruption" but it's just chaos.

Nothing like a piece in the Times talking about taxing couples without children to make it clear that The Great Replacement Theory is an actual concern for the vile racist ghouls that make up the establishment

One reason it's essential to see these struggles as interconnected? The other side does. I've been to a lot of anti-abortion events recently and I can tell you: They're all talking about trans health care and abortion as twin symptoms of a cultural shift they want to destroy.

"Given that the court, in overturning Roe, has just handed over what used to be a fundamental right to the political process, there could not be a worse time for making our democratic process less democratic," @LeahLitman, @kateashaw1 and @cshaplaw write.

Its abortion rights or the filibuster. Its clean air or the filibuster. Its marriage equality or the filibuster. The choice is easy.

Play is done and the toy returns to the Great Box of Feather Toys that she cannot have out or she will try to ingest them all.
I finally got slo-mo video of Katya doing a twist in mid-air.
Im trying to make the world a tiny bit less terrible because I existed every day.
We are all mad and scared and vaguely aware that we are deeply fucked. We can either start fighting the people near us because were terrified or we can pick a thing to do that will make the world a tiny inch less terrible.
I promise you that there are people who agree with you on every point who wont vote, and there are people who you could fight to the bitter death who will mark a ballot identically to you and turn it in. Its better if we dont fight to the bitter death.
I knowI truly do!that it is very hard not to yell at people on Twitter. Im trying to actively stop myself from doing that and doing something productive instead.
Now is a really, really great time to start helping register voters. There are partisan organizations that are doing that. There are non partisan organizations that are doing that.
Just gonna repeat as many times as it needs to be said: the best way to get as many people as possible to vote this November is to start volunteering for get out the vote operations. The worst way is to yell at people on Twitter because they have views that differ from yours.
Getting an agent when you are regularly capable of getting commercial contracts is much, much easier. Agents like guaranteed money.
Finally, one thing: getting an agent when you are a new writer really sucks.
* Your agent should never, ever, enter into a contract without your consent, or tell you that you have no choice but to accept a contract. You are always in charge.
(As an example: agent 1 sells a book. Agent 1 does nothing. You leave agent 1. 10 years later, you sell film rights without any help or input from agent 1. Agent 1 should not get a cut.)
* Your agents cut should be drawn from those contracts which she sold and negotiated. Be very wary of agents who want to take 15% of deals they had nothing to do with.
* Theres a difference between an agent offering constructive criticism, which is designed to help you both get more money and/or help you more accurately meet your vision, and negging, which is designed to make you accept less from your agent. The latter is never okay.
* Send you your money with all reasonable haste. Provide clear accounting for all money received.
* Let you know when youve received rejections and convey the content of those rejections.
* Provide information about submissions, including what houses youre submitting to, and what editors at what houses.
Timely in publishing obviously doesnt mean overnight, but it does mean that she communicates to you what the timeframe is, and lets you know if it slips.
* Submit your work in a timely manner. If she thinks it needs revision before submission state what needs to be revised clearly, and look at your revisions in a timely manner as well.
* Ask for interim sales numbers from your publisher so you can plan ahead
* Talk to your publisher about things about the relationship: - reasonable cover objections - promo requests - editorial reviews
If your sales numbers are the same as someone else and theyre getting $10K extra, that is good information to have.
Just as a note, here are some things an agent should do for you: * be willing to negotiate with a publisher for a higher advance, and argue why its supported by (sales/comps/etc) It helps to be able to talk money and sales with people at your publisher.
Love doesn't just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all the time, made new.

I've been accused of "hiding" when something good happens to me professionally (@MiaHeintzelman & @makingthewords ). For those in the know, this ad is in the TLS. For those not, it's the equivalent of an ad in the NYT Review of Books. 嚙@ACMRSPressrUpeB

Its called the Right to Choose for a reason. Some will choose yes. Some will choose no. But its your choice, not anyone elses.

not to be a bitch, but i don't know how the Supreme Court made any of June's decisions and expected people to leave them alone. maybe they should resign if they don't like the heat

Your meeting is not a powwwow. Your gal pals are not a tribe. You are probably not on anyone's totem pole and you don't have a spirit animal.

I cannot recall ever hearing one of those people say Im so glad I gave her another chance. Ever.
A thing I have observed over the last ten years as an author in this wild industry. I have seen many, many people say something like this: So my agent has really not done anything for me and doesnt seem to respond to my emails but Im going to give her one last chance.
I meant it to mean Supreme court justices, sorted by party who nominated them, but didnt quite say that. Sorry!
Minor correction: this is CONFIRMED justices instead of NOMINATED ones as the title says.
GOP nominees Blackmun Powell Rehnquist Stevens OConnor Scalia Kennedy Souter Thomas Roberts Alito Gorsuch Kavanaugh Barrett
SUPREME COURT JUSTICES NOMINATED BY PARTY SINCE 1970 Democratic nominees Ginsburg Breyer Sotomayor Kagan Jackson
Wisconsin school board rejected book about Japanese American internment. They felt that we needed the perspective of the American government and why Japanese internment happened. Let me present this photo of national memorial for internment camps in DC as the gov perspective
