Tuesday so far

I went to sleep around 1:00 a.m. and woke at 9:00 a.m., so I did pretty well.  I didn't get anywhere fast.  I sat under the sunlight-effect lamp in the morning.  I didn't read any books.  I read e-mail and various people's Tumblr posts on my phone.  The place I have space for a lamp and a place to plug it in is in front of my computer monitor, so I can't see the computer while I use the lamp.  I move the lamp back and forth from a low bureau that's by my bed.  There's an outlet behind the bureau, but it's very hard to reach.

I went out to see the snowdrops in the late afternoon.  Some were starting to open.  I'd thought that snowdrops came and went in a couple of weeks, but these have been in bud for a couple of weeks.  The leaves persist after the flowers have gone by.

I want to finish up an editing job or two tonight.  There's one due Thursday that I've been over twice, and one due in late March that I've been over twice.

I read various things online.  I had a discussion in comments about m/m fan fic in which I said that some writers of it, and some authors of original m/m fiction, wrote it as the taller protagonist being the one that's more masculine, and apparently no thought to it beyond that.  I said that I liked when the authors thought about gender in a more complex way than that, and knew more about same-sex relationships than that.  There are lesbian and bisexual women who write m/m fiction.  I know of several genderqueer authors.  The ones I'm thinking of do not identify as female.  My very generalized impression is that they tend to write male viewpoint very well.  There are also a number of women who I think write male viewpoint well.  But there are certainly those m/m authors who take a more complicated view of gender and sexuality than those who write books in which you could change a name and have a female protagonist with no change to the relationship dynamics.
