Tag: autism

I am autistic and prefer identity-first language. The posts within this tag are autism-centered, or possibly directly related; however, my autism is no separable from myself, so…this tag is slightly redundant, no? ?

This is an overview of the reading challenges I partook in last year and the ones I’ll be participating in this year.

I don’t know what this year holds, so I’m not expecting anything major. What I do know is that I will conduct Janepedia differently—probably more so than ever before, like I’m a totally different person. Because I kind of am.

Aside from working to be more open about my dissociative identity disorder on my blog, I’m considering serializing a novel I’m writing instead of first going the traditional publishing vs. indie publishing routes.

An overview of my life and blog in 2017, from drama to beating around the bush.

2017 is coming to an end, and I am wrapping up my 2017 reading. Compared to last year, my reading variety expanded. Reading a wide variety of things is important to meβ€”not only as a writer, but as a human being in general. For me, reading helps me connect with and understand a world I have difficulty understanding.

Of the 52 books I’ve read thus far this year, here are my favorite genres.

NaNoWriMo illustration; I don't know how to describe it, but each syllable of the acronym is in a two-tone circle, and they're connected to each other; it looks a bit sciencey

Whether NaNoWriMo was something I could benefit from was something I needed to experience for myself.

I’m not one to share my goals—this is different. (I think.) I’m already in the progress of accomplishing these things.

@JuRainford [other mentions redacted] I don't feel embarrassed. Someone I follow was part of the conversation. And again, having a public discussion means outside people are going to come in. I added to the conversation in hopes you'd understand autistics more. I won't apologize for that.

I don’t feel embarrassed. I stand by what I said. If I am to be punished for standing up like that, for not sitting on the sidelines and later thinking I could have done something, then fine. But also? Shame on Twitter. I expected better. I know they’re capable of doing better.

I have zero tolerance for this shit.

This is one of the hardest posts I’ve written, in that it’s taken me several years and I wasn’t sure how to articulate it.
