I’ve been looking back at some of the things I’ve posted on this blog about asexuality over the last week, and I’ve realised that there’s actually a lot more there than I thought there was. Which feels pretty good, to be honest, because over the past year I’ve not exactly felt the most confident in my asexuality-writing endeavours. This is possibly a side-effect of being an Honours student, and spending every bit of my reading and writing energy on my thesis. And probably some other things as well.
But, the thesis is now done and dusted, and seeing as I’m trying to tidy up the blog a bit, I thought I’d make a masterlist of all the things I’ve written over the past four years. Eventually I want to include this on the asexuality resource page I’m working on (just for this blog, nothing fancy). In the meantime, I thought I’d post it here as a reference for anyone who might be interested … More A Masterlist of Writing on Asexuality
In between digging and travelling, the last few months have also sent a few asexuality-related media and writing opportunities my way. Two have just been published – a piece over at Mamamia which I wrote after being contacted by one of their writers, and a piece for the Observer written by Alex Preston, for which I was interviewed. I also wrote a piece back in June for Role Reboot, which I’ll link to as well, for anyone interested in seeing what I’ve been up to in other spaces … More Recent Writings in Other Places

Today, I’m celebrating a year of blogging! Technically, my blogging anniversary would have been sometime in June. However, this time one year ago was when I really started to get into this blog, and began to post regularly, rather than writing one thing and then nothing for months on end. So I’m celebrating today, because … More Reflecting on a Year of Blogging
Welcome to the 50th Edition of the Down Under Feminists’ Carnival! Fifty editions is quite a milestone, though with the unclear status of the last few months, I’m not really sure if it is the fiftieth edition after all. But that does not matter, because I have a wonderful collection of submissions for the month … More 50th Edition of the Down Under Feminists’ Carnival
TW for mentions of misogynistic and rape-apologetic comments not published on this blog, just to be safe. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve had quite a few very negative and misogynistic comments in response to my writing, and it’s gotten me a bit down. I’m very busy lately; end of semester assignments, (one … More Blogging as Creating Safe Spaces
For part one of the interview, click here. Do you think that there is such thing as women’s writing (as separate to “normal” writing/men’s writing)? My character Sophie ponders this in My Candlelight Novel, and I don’t think she comes to a firm conclusion. Virginia Woolf said that you shouldn’t write as a woman or … More Interview with a Feminist Author: Joanne Hornimann (Part Two)
