Intervention Coverage!!

Hi Everyone!

I am so darn late with posting links to my latest press adventures. A couple of weeks ago, I did press at a geek/nerd con called Intervention. I had the opportunity to write for a couple of places about it, so please check everything out below:

The Mary Sue: Intervention – The Panels and The Powerhouse Woman Behind The Unique Geek Convention

Geeks and Cleats: Intervention is a Geek Entrepreneur Haven

Black Girl Nerds: Webcomics 101: What You Need To Know

Right now, I am working on a super special project and getting ready for a special panel appearance in a couple of months, so I may not be around as much. But, I love you guys!!!

Doctor Who and Theism: My Observations on The Mary Sue

Hi Everyone!

As you all know, I love Doctor Who! Today, my article for The Mary Sue posted and it’s pretty awesome! The relationship with the show and theism is a hot debate among fans. I made a few comparisons to prevalent concepts in theism and showed how they are used in the show to make it incredible!

Of course, these concepts are not exclusive to theism, but they are strongly associated with religion. 

Soooo check it out here!!!

The Autonomy of Dancing In The Rain

I walk to the beat of my own musical. But, as much as I pride myself on rejecting the status quo and being a hip-hop lovin’, Doctor Who watchin’, Afro-wearin’ kooky kid, I am human. I still have the innate sense of wanting to belong. I want to feel like I am a part of something bigger than myself…and sometimes that feeling comes at a cost. As I writer, I feel like I am always on the outside looking in. I know other bloggers and they know of me, but I always keep my guard up. I feel like if they really knew ME, then they wouldn’t accept me. Sigh. It’s like there is an elite writer’s club and I am outside the club looking in. Maybe its because I’m socially awkward and nerdy. Maybe its all in my head. Either way, the feelings are TOO REAL.

Lately, I have been listening to Colbie Callat’s “Try.” When it comes to my loneliness in the writing arena, this song reminds me that as long as I like me, its all good. Cliche, I know, but it became a cliche because it needed to be repeated! My favorite lyrics are:

“Wait a second,
Why, should you care, what they think of you
When you’re all alone, by yourself, do you like you?
Do you like you?”

As long as I continue to transform constructive criticism into growth and maintain my integrity as a writer and a woman, it’s okay if I am outside the club. I’ll continue to dance in the rain and enjoy the autonomy of being in my own world.

Have a good week! I have a special article coming up and as soon as it is on the web, I will share it with you 🙂
