Back on May 12th, I commented on both Twitter and Facebook about the Buy Black Movement. Big Brother and I had watched a YouTube video explaining its origins. Since neither of us were familiar with it, I did my thing by researching. It's a wonderful idea and something sorely needed in the black community.

Mini-Musing ~ April 24th, 2022

So I'm taking some time from my writing to clean the two inch thick layer of dust and cat hair from my office. I'm also listening to Neil Gaiman's MasterClass.

I tried applying, but it always made me key in my card number and such. I was wary about that and it didn't seem that I… Continue reading So Maybe it’s Time to Update That List, @SFWA?
