Yay! Divorcing a Real Witch is finally available for pre-order in electronic form: If you do prefer paper, it is discounted a solid $5 from its cover price right now - roughly $18.99. #pagan   #divorce   #wiccan   If you've been watching me work through this project and really want to support it, pre-ordering is the BEST way to do so. It's also a great help if you share it on your social media, or over a beverage with friends pound the table and say, "OMG, I heard about this book. The title is going to crack you up!"

Watching Hart & Dixie on Netflix on Demand. It has its ups and downs - basically it IS an extended romance novel for 30 somethings - but the show has its charm.

Yeah, that doesn't bother me. I don't see why the hell she had to pick only one if everybody knew what was up and the feelings were real.

Putting "thug" in your username is essentially announcing your identity as "slimeball." Thanks for making it easy. Hope you get taken out by a truck.

Yahoo no longer accepts my password. Attempted to change password. 5 attemps made with a 32 character string upper, lowercase, numeric. Each time password is rejected as "too weak." Click help. Page does not load. Search for yahoo tech support. Find a phone number. Call phone number. Get hung up on twice.

For the love of fuck, why does the Twin Cities #pagan  community insist on continued use of yahoogroups? It's not apathy that's killing us. It's the inability to @#$%(@)%)*@!~~!@!!! log in!!!

#Wicca   #Pagan  possibly loaded question: have you (general) actually caught anyone claiming to be part of a tradition or initiatory line that they weren't in the last ten years? There's a lot of concern about it, sure - but it seems like that crap died out around the late 90s.

+Star Foster is spearheading a project relating to spiritual crisis. This has nothing to do with the one I started and dropped in my 20s. :)

For those of you who can't make my workshop at Paganicon2014, this is the at-home version of the same. You can print out handouts from it at my blog: #pagan   #paganism   #wicca   #witchcraft

Writer, Wiccan, gleeful eccentric
Writer. Blogger. Out of the Wiccan broom closet whether I like it or not. There is no party with which I'm involved that has a line that goes anywhere near my toes.

Main Gig: Fat Chic: It's not about trying to look thin. 

Upcoming bookDivorcing a Real Witch: for Pagans and the people that used to love them. To be published with O Books.

You can find out more on my blog or on the Facebook page for the book.

Artist's Way
Also, I am very much involved with the works of Julia Cameron. She is, for lack of a better comparison, my Oprah Winfrey. I have spent since 2008 working through her Artist's Way book series and it has made a wonderful difference in my creative production as well as in the rest of my life.

A few other points:
  • I am neither elitist nor lowbrow.
  • I'm very well educated and very well read - and very aware how much there is yet to learn for everyone.
  • My two most notable fandom/geekouts belong to Daria and Doctor Who.
  • I have a life partner. He has his own stuff going on.
  • I am an ally to LGBT rights, women's rights, human rights, and generally making an effort.
  • I am a feminist. Not post, not pre. Right NOW. Because the world needs me to be one, and I'm doing it for myself.
  • Yes, I AM Pagan. No, I do NOT: camp, enjoy JRR Tolkien or related works, see anything praiseworthy or worthy of criticism in being a Luddite, hate Christians or atheists, consider men "the enemy," collect crystals, collect cats or pets, and when I do wear patchouli I'm extraordinarily picky about its quality and sourcing.
