Some things I have been thinking about:

How this relates to my fiction

Anyway, this is a really messy post which is basically me trying to get my thoughts together and trying to analyze why I write what I write and why I want to write what I want to write.

Rereading Praying for Pedestrians yesterday ( I subbed this one as my #2 story to Clarion San Diego) , I realized that in this piece I was saying things that I wanted to say about the status of the invisible people in society.  It is easier for people to objectify or exoticize the other rather than discuss the issue of giving the other their rightful place in society. 

The thing is, if we all just shut up because we were afraid of making waves and offending people, change will
never take place.
