I am pretty grateful! To some, one online publication isn't a big deal. But for me and this project...this is a feat!
Please take a look at the article and also the other articles in the zine this week!

You ask questions, that's how.
I posed some interesting but basic questions about pregnancy and hit up all my girlfriends who have babies or who have been pregnant. I got some awesome answers, by the way, which I will be posting anonymously (unless some ladies don't care if I use names...hit me up if you don't care!)
Also, I've been doing art. 'Cause you know, this project features letters (which you've seen) and essays (which you've also seen) and art (which I've only posted minimally). I'll be posting a few of those randomly as well.
Things I have to remind myself:
1.) Art and writing is hard-don't let anyone tell you different. Don't listen to people who say their art and writing are fluid life forces (what does that even mean, dog??). They're show boaters who will make you feel bad.
2.) Share it, that's progressive!
3.) Politics, positive and negative, are your friends and give you lots of fuel. We all have frienemies so use them to your advantage.
4.) No amount of coffee and wine will aid in your writing quest.
5.) Reading helps, especially funny, informative and dynamic lit!
Okay, let's do this!!! I'm coming after you, brain!

If you had left your uterus to its own devices, however, you wouldn't have had to worry about the tampon string, at least. I can see it now: my uterus would have gone to Morocco. It would have eaten good food, gone to the beaches of Essaouira or Tangier. Baked in the sun or roamed the streets, drunk from wine and dazed by hookah smoke. It would be completely unaware that I was also having the time of my life without it. The uterus wouldn't miss me. I think I might miss it, though.

I think it would be a great idea if you took a vacation. Not that the rest of the body is sick of you or anything, but you really aren’t doing anything down there. If you went away on a trip to, say, Barbados, and came back if/when you receive word that you are needed, I really don’t see that as a problem. Just think of how refreshing that would be! I am not suggesting that you never come back, as that would be troubling. But who doesn’t need a little sand in their fallopian tubes every now and again, right?
Think about it.
