Thursday

I went to bed around 1:30 a.m., after re-reading the section of the Affinity!Verse in binder #4.  It's all of September 2014's chapters.  Rainjoy made a number of Affinity!Verse posts in the second half of September.  It's probably around 100 pages or so.  I woke at 9:00 with my alarm, and lay back down.  S.M. called at 9:05.  Dad called at 10:10.  I got up and got moving.  I got to the garden club meeting at about 11:05, which wasn't bad.

I was very sleepy, but I took minutes.  The program after lunch was on putting the garden to bed in the fall.

When I got home, I lay down for an hour or so.

I got an editing job to do, which I will work on tonight and tomorrow.

I did a post about the third episode of Load the Dice on Tumblr.  I said that the great majority of m/m romances had white protagonists.  It's my impression that if erotica has people of color, they are usually fetishized for their color.  It's a nice change for a book to have a love interest who is a man of color, but has his own personality and is not fetishized for his skin color and eye shape.  Jamie (not!Blaine) is half-Saudi and half-Vietnamese.  PaperMoon likes BDSM romances, and romances with Asian protagonists.  I recommended the book to him.  I don't remember if I directly e-mailed Biyuti, but she'll likely see my Tumblr posts.  I think I owe her an e-mail.  I definitely owe TallCR and Dennis Stone e-mails.

I chatted with Riah for a while.

I chatted with WhiteSheepCBD for a while.  I looked to see if medievalpoc, who I follow anyway, had anything on Porthos.  They did.  http://medievalpoc.tumblr.com/search/Porthos It seems like the ideal match to one of their points, that historical fiction based in Europe doesn't have to have all white characters.

I chatted with Codeman a bit, including about representation.  I said how Callie would really like asexual representation.  I said that in my perception, sci-fi shows tend to have characters who could be read as ace, and sometimes crime dramas, too.  Codeman agreed.

I should really get a race tag, but it seems presumptuous.
