 The best thing about Strunk/White fanfiction is that it's virtually guaranteed to be well-written.

Oh xkcd. You make me happy when skies are gray.

Title: Family Planning
Rating: PG-13 for language
Summary: Planned parenthood, Y the Last Man style. Takes place around the end of the book five, Ring of Truth.

Isn't that kind of like moving the Vatican into the Castro district? )


I don't think we can overstate the importance of places like Planned Parenthood in helping women take control of their health, sexual safety, and family planning decisions. I've gone to their clinics, and I'm glad I could.

14 Valentines: Day Nine, Reproductive Rights.

Musings.

Been forever since I posted here, but not for lack of off-screen action. In the last seven months, I've worked on four stories set in the Westverse or somewhere next-door to it (two are in edits, one is about to get there, who knows with the fourth), gotten halfway through chapter three of "To The Dead," plotted one rather metaphysical science fiction novella I'll probably never write and come up with the character roster for an off-kilter superhero comic that I'll probably never script, and concocted a huge story arc for a project with [livejournal.com profile] shaenie that could easily surpass 200,000 words before the end of it. I went on a Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler binge that may have finally cured me of the belief that when it comes to adjectives, more is more, and I've gotten to know at least two of my characters well enough that their dialogue and actions have started to write themselves.

I could do a whole post on the shifts I'm experiencing in my writing style and my understanding of the craft of storytelling (that sounds incredibly pretentions, but I feel like I'm starting to get what it means to tell a story on a blueprints-and-scaffolding level instead of just a paint-and-polish one), but what prompted me to post now is my decision that I needed to re-work a 2,000 word chunk of a story in edits.
