I have been waking early recently, like about 4 or half past.
This has vaguely helped my writing, or so I thought, because I could do a lot whilst the gentle snores emanate from the other room.
The book Mindful
or alternatively titled,
A Descent into Sanity., is out on Kindle.

The Constantine Affliction by T. Aaron Payton (Night Shade Books, 2012) is a steampunk detective story, set in an alternate London where a sexually transmitted disease has recently begun spreading, killing many and changing the sex of the survivors. This is central to the plot, but not in the way that it would be in a story that’s solidly in the TG fiction subgenre; none of the viewpoint characters are transformed, though a couple of major supporting characters were transformed in the backstory, and one other is transformed in the course of the story, though not onstage.
Families, who can live with them?
The next time I mention something about my family being nice, someone please have the guts to put me out of my misery? Please

What would Donald say, or Walt? (Actually what will the Disney Legal team say?)
It's been several months since I last posted anything on BC. This is because I went to see my doctor about what I thought was a minor medical problem.

As I general rule, I always picture myself as a bottom rung kind of person who is trying to get to the next level but always seem to have some difficulty.

There was a surprise cross-reference in Temptation of Anya - Part 3, but apparently nobody noticed it, or if they did notice, they didn't comment or PM me about it.
This turned up on the Guardian website and I found it very sad. There are some links to reports and also some photos of the 'girls' working as prostitutes.

I'm looking for a story where the main character hasn't started puberty and is taken to see the doctor and after getting a checkup is given a shot of testosterone and goes into anaphylactic shock due
I hate to sound like a Catholic Nun or something. Several of you from BCTS are my friends on Facebook and everyone has respected my caveat about being too open about T stuff there until now.
Its not news, but I am a total wuss when it comes to pain.
For example, I am currently in tears because my mouth hurts so much.

Hopefully better luck tomorrow.

Maybe there is intelligent life in government after all.
We here in the Closet don't often give our editors the credit they deserve publicly, and that's something that I'm hoping to correct here, not only because I feel she deserves it, but also because I think that there are a few of you who might appreciate how her work has helped me.
Last month I published an anthology of flash-fiction that I put together. It was a lot of fun to edit and write for and I'm really happy with how it turned out.
The overall article is interesting, but page 3 has my favorite listing: Jeph Jacques.
A rant is not fiction.

I'm really excited today. I finally finished a part of my writing and posted it.
Well, today is my fifth anniversary here on Big Closet!
I'm truly happy to see so many celebrating Mother's day. Mothers go through a lot bringing a new life into the world, nurturing that child, then sending them out to stand on their own two feet.

Back in January 2011, I couldn't believe I'd written episode 1234 of Bike. I wondered if I'd get to 2345. Now I know the answer. Why? is probably best not asked.
I read an article on CBS News that I thought would be of interest to those around here.
Well, happy Mother's day, everyone.
If you can, be kind to a mother. Your mother for preference, but you can pick another mother if you need to ...

Well, Jaci is gonna have a laugh about this, but last night, I was talking to a co-worker about my transition, and I mentioned how nervous I was starting out.
I didn't wanna bother people with this after having announced that it was up but...
I ran across this today while looking for information for a story.
Okay okay. I admit. I've hardly read it all. I probably haven't even scratched the surface when it comes to what's out there to read. The problem is that most of it, doesn't appeal to me.
For those of you who have been following my blog for the last week know I've been doing some kind of weird experiment on Amazon.

For the few people that may be interested "Away With The Faeries" and "April Fooled!" are now available again on Amazon.
This should be of interest to anyone who is publishing or is thinking of publishing on Kindle. Is there a bigger market for TG fiction than we think, that question should be answered in part today.
I love and respect so many of you. Those of you that have not been able to transition and live like I have are the brave, courageous ones.
Well after carefully thinking about it, I decided to change the pic of Beth for Ch.5 of Clownfish. The pic I had of her did look a little old as a few people pointed out.
Well, after long last I have finished 300 Rains. I wrote the last bit just a while ago. Once I edit it I will get that up here and people can see how it ends.
Perhaps a matter of perspective though sometimes I wonder if this is my perception of my own bizarre gender appreciation.
