The Skim: 25 January 2014

Welcome to The Skim, a curated weekly round-up of links, podcasts, videos, and/or books. I apologize for being late, but work and life have a way of sucking me into a vortex. (This video sums up how my life, full of conference calls, is.) This week features blogs about not being an insensitive jerk to (single and) childless women, choosing your own beloved community, dumb mythologies about black women, finding part-time lovers, and writing advice. 

TheGrio: Single and Living Fab — Jacque Reid discusses how to speak respectfully to childless women (also known as “don’t be a jerky ass to women who are single and childless” and “don’t chastise people for their situations that you know nothing about, clown”) 
Brain Picking: John Steinbeck on writing
To wrap everything up, it’s Nina Simone giving sage advice.

I am an oil-and-water combination of humor, ambition, laziness, insecurity, certainty, procrastination, and drive. I am an aspiring romance novelist who writes by the seat of her pants. Waging and sometimes winning a daily battle with procrastination, plots, characters, and the day job.
