Yes, I Can Write

I am proud of the fact that I have haters.

(…all of whom are white men. Coincidence or patriarchy?)

This message arrived in my personal Facebook inbox last night:

Never a dull moment in the writing life!


To John Smith, and the other white men who have contacted me with negative things to say: I will continue to write, no matter what others have to say about my work.

In the words of Janelle Monáe: “Even if it makes others uncomfortable, I will love who I am.”
