Blog / 2020 / Being Inspired Instead of Jealous

January 9, 2020

There’s more about how to redirect jealousy in this vlog. Please remember that it can be exhausting to inspire people who never thank you. Publicly giving credit to the artists you love is good for all of art-kind!

The first names embedded in the ABC book image featured in the video are Fang, Farideh, Fatimah, Fauna, Faust, Faye, Felicity, Felipe, Felix, Fern, Filomena, Fiona, Flora, Floriane, Flynn, Forrest, Fortunata, Frances, Francis, Françoise, Fred, Freda, Freya, Fuchsia, Fumi, and Funmilola.

Here’s what I’ve been reading since my last alphabet book update:

  • The Summer of Jordi Perez by Amy Spalding

    This sweet YA novel gives me hope that upcoming generations will not be as uptight or repressed as the current crop of adults. The book also includes an interesting plot line about portraiture and appropriation.

  • Know My Name by Chanel Miller

    This memoir is about reclaiming personhood when you have been assaulted, and it is really good. I talk about the book more here.
