Thank you all for the supportive comments and stories on my depression post Monday, and I’m sorry I haven’t been able to respond to them all individually. It’s very much appreciated. On a related note, I think four of the most powerful words in English are “You are not alone.”

Rape Crisis Center Fundraiser Update: We’ve raised more than $2500 so far, which is wonderful. For those who still want to donate, RAINN is matching all donations for the rest of April, meaning anything you give is effectively doubled. Also, my LJ friend Shadesong is once again doing the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center Walk for Change. If you sponsor her, that would also count as an entry toward my fundraiser. I’m just saying…

Remember that cover pose thing I did earlier this year? I’m thinking about doing another one to address some of the most common responses I hear when we talk about how women are posed and portrayed. This is inspired in part by the comments to an article over at Tor.com: Hey Everyone, Stop Taking This Picture. What do you think? Does the world need another round of ridiculously-posed Jim pics?

I have Libriomancer bookmarks. If you’ll be going to a convention in the next 3-4 months and would be willing to put some bookmarks out on the freebies table, please let me know? Thank you!

An idea!

Make a game of this. Have a group of fannish reader friends over. Everyone (in turn) strikes a pose from the cover of some book they know (and expect others to know) and everyone else tries to guess which book it is from the pose. Sort of a twist of Charades.

That would make a good panel for a convention, actually.

Except that if you do that "My butt let me show you it" pose, it could be pretty much any SF/fantasy book with a female protagonist ever.
