The Friendly Black Hottie.

***PSA: DON'T SEND ME MSGS ABOUT THAT OLD ASS REVERSE RACISM POST. YOU'RE JUST ANNOYING, NOT CHANGING MINDS.*** Hey hey. I’m Colette. 23-year old post-grad doing that writing thing. This nook and cranny of the Tumblr universe is a mash of all the things that spark me eye and soul. That being POC and particularly Black + Woman of Color Issues, Writing, Facts & Knowledge, Diverse Beauty, Art, Lovely photographs, Health, Self-Love, God & Happy Living. As for specifics, be prepared to see Leonardo Dicaprio’s hilarium and sexiness, with the occasional Walking Dead Post [Richonne & Dixonne ftw!]. If this all appeals, then stay on the line! Amongst fan fiction and smaller projects, I’m working on a fantasy novel + a fairytale retelling anthology with all WoC heroines. ALSO: Look out for my PoC Writing Advice blog…coming mid July! Oh and I actually updated my about me with non-lazy ish.

On Writing: Unasked Questions

readingwithavengeance:

If a book is to have a sequel, obviously you don’t want to give up all the information in the first installment.  There should always be questions unanswered, mysteries to be solved, plot lines that need continuing.  That is, after all, the point of a series.  I’ve no problem with that.

What I take issue with is questions that are unasked.

“How did her parents know to hide from the supposedly-benevolent government?”

“Why are all these kids being experimented on?”

“Who the hell thought factions would actually work?”

It is fine if the answers to these questions are left for a later book.  As long as the questions are posed, I know that they’ll be addressed later, I know that the author is aware that there is a question there.  If these questions are ignored, what assurance do I have that they’ll be solved later?  How do I know that it’s not going to remain a plot hole?

There are two things to keep in mind in this regard: every reader’s time is limited and perception is reality.  I can’t read every book out there, so I’m not (usually) going to going to spend it on sequels when the first novel feels lacking.  And, since I can’t read your mind and see that you plan to answer all my questions in a brilliant fashion, you have to let me know this is going to happen in the book I’m reading.  If I perceive the book to be full of plot holes, then it doesn’t matter if they’re going to be filled in later, because right now all I’ve got are plot holes and no hope.

Have your characters wonder about things.  Have them ask questions.  Turn your plot holes into mysteries.  Curious characters are your friend.

Imagine if some guy was tripping and saw the woman, runs up to help her and she just crumbles apart in his hands. That’s gonna take the trip south.

So that white girl made the team? Really? Er idk how I feel about this…she don’t need this damn space. Tell me she didn’t tho…

I know how you feel

Why didn’t see need it? She’s just as good as the other girls…. Why is it bad that she’s on the team?

niggas cant do shit pertaining to their culture without a white girl jumpin in…these same dances that are getting the dolls & their show called ratchet, trashy, slutty and ghetto will not be applied to her, and if so without the same force or from a “we need to save that white girl” stance (see white moms *concerned* for miley cyrus). now off with ye wench you’re annoying

I follow @KristyT on Twitter and she let me know about a project that she created with @tiffani (#DetroitWater) to help Detroit residents with their water costs. Their website is detroitwaterproject.org and there you can confidentially donate to cover a person’s bill. 
Detroit has the highest percentage of Black residents compared to any other major U.S. city, and as I wrote about in Black In The 99%, race is most certainly forever intertwined with class and poverty; these cannot be extracted from each other, especially in a country where its very financial system and imperialistic power would not exist without enslavement and genocide. There is no way to extract the economic violence being committed upon Detroit residents from racial histories. 
According to RH Reality Check, "in Detroit, the cost of water is nearly twice the national average, and approximately half of the city’s customers owe outstanding balances on their water bills. But let’s situate this against a broader historical and sociopolitical backdrop. By 2011, half of Detroit’s working-age population was unemployed, and only 27 percent had full-time work. Nearly one in five Detroit residents were below the poverty line. Approximately three in five children were living in households headed by single mothers (see Rose Brewer’s article on the prison industrial complex). Moreover, these statistics are significantly worse for the city’s Black and Latino residents.” 
People simply cannot go without water and while this entire situation is larger than just “unpaid bills” but are acts of violence against these residents amidst larger economic and racial disenfranchisement, with the recent 15 day suspension on the human-made drought, hopefully no other excuses can be used to harm these people if they’re able to pay the bills. This isn’t about lack of “personal responsibility” creating negligence over a “luxury” but about systemic poverty, capitalism, privatization and WATER. 
Again, if you want to support Detroit residents through a confidential donation via this fundraiser created by two thoughtful Black women, visit: detroitwaterproject.org.
