Girl. Barbra Christian said she wrote to make sure that she saw what she had seen. GIRL. Like, writing as anchor.

Kinda fell apart there for a minute. But seeing this draft, as rough as it can be, but new and clean reminded me of something.

WITCH you wrote a fucking book last summer. So you got this. And when you get this done you can write your next book and launch your next website. An archive of YOUR favorite feminist. MUAH hahahah. Jesus. I hate sometimes how the solitude that writing requires and the pressures of life (economic, heart strings) be having me off my square. Off to get some chinese food and to map out theorists of Black women in pornography and to get my head around this nasty assed disorgranized section on the political economy of the blogosphere. <———————————I hate that section. But I need to Love it.

Also, this would all be better if there were a Black romcom in the theaters, then I could just work until the movie came on. You know..like a reward. Plays Jay Z’s december 4th b/c the Black Album is my favorite dark shit.

Note to self. Always print in between drafts because.a.) It is a HUGE feeling of accomplishment b.) It helps me to see where the holes are in the work.

I knew this. #Stubborn. #Sloppy. #Learning.

It will take 6 of them to equal one of her. #equations.

So apparently at the top of EVERY section, I need to outline where I am going, this keeps me from getting lost in the sauce. THis is hard, and makes my paper look busy, BUT it works. It takes what it takes.

When people fan girl w/ me I get excited. Not in ego, but for my grandmother. She is the reason why I have the language to write anything. And for God, God has kept me alive. #perspective.

It also feels to be something special and accessible for Black girls. For them to hear me or look at me and be like “girl how do you find the time.” For me it smooths out the edges of so much Black girl pain we experience. #pleasure.

So the whole thing has been turned inside out, since yesterday. Welp. I guess God knew I was ready. I apparently didn’t. :)

I’ve been quiet. I am here, recalibrating from this weekend/week.

Yesterday while outlining my version of a Black Feminist romcom, Terry Mcmillan followed me. THAT was a sign, to push forward to the other side of this because God knows how much I look for direction from Black women artists given how stubborn I am. It was like seeing Zadie Smith on the street on my birthday last year. Epic.

coming soon: writing about love

newsouthnegress:

i’m going to be drafting a new book project this summer and doing some other kinds of writing (music reviews, book reviews, etc.) that i’ve been intending to do that often simply can’t happen during the semester.

there is tension in my writing that i need to resolve in order to work on this next…

This elevated my blood pressure but in a good way. :)

The Flavors of Communism

Basic communism/ Marxism

1) a socio-political-economic theory based on common ownership of the means of production by the working masses, achieved by the overthrow of the ruling capitalist elite by revolution led by a single vanguard party. This government will transform society along socialist principles and eventually will render itself redundant, ending in anarchism, being a minimal state, which through plain good-ideas-spreadism, will spread globally. Under communism there is no poverty, as the comparative means of defining poverty are non-existent.

2) Leninism; Marxism but with the idea that small scale non-industrial capitalism is okay and that communist governments should be long standing.

3) Stalinism; One nation under socialism, doing away with the peace and love idea of global spreading, taking a more realistic approach that capitalism self destructs into violent fascism. And that it is best that the communist parties of different nations spread within those nations and form NATO like alliances. It’s communism with borders.

4) Maoism. The vanguagrd party is replaced by the masses instigating revolution, and this revolution is permanent, as capitalism, for as long as it exists, is always a threat.

4b) Mihnism - communism with the idea that is is the duty of the communist party to forcibly put down fascist capitalism, regardless of borders. It was the Vietnamese invasion of Cambodia that stopped the genocidal Kmer Rouge.

6) Trotskism - WAAAAHHHH! MUSTACHE MANN STOLE MY COOKIE!!! WAAAAHHHH! I WANTS TO BE BIG PARTY MAN!!! *shits self, fucks off to mexico, lives as capitalist*
