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. 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.
