Okay, Internet. I've got a deal for you, so pay attention.
The short story is you need to ask me for more solicited advice so I can be witty and sassy in my answers while fixing your life and entertaining the rest of the world.
Fine, maybe not your entire life. But at least the part you're getting ready to ask me about.
So here's the deal. For those of you who don't know, the big glossy mags have huge lead times between putting an issue together and the actual date of publication. I turn my own work into Latina months in advance, which is actually pretty standard in the industry. So, maybe I'm ahead on paper, but next month's deadline is still giving me the stink-eye.
This summer is going to be insane for me with conferences (like that BlogHer '14 Me Speaking on a Freelancing Panel because I suck at self-promotion and totally forgot to blog about that when I found out forever ago!) and a few new projects I've got brewing. That's not counting the novel I'm still trying to write, the ChingonaFest workshops and retreats I'm in the planning stages for, and remembering to feed my child, or the times I write "Sex with The Husband" on my To-Do list so I have a visual reminder to step away from the laptop every now and again.
To make my life Slightly Less Insane, I need you to talk to me. I need my inbox full of questions and to keep it full of questions. Topics include (but aren't limited to..)
- * love
- * relationships
- * cultural issues
- * body image
- * dating
- * parenting
- * Crazy Ex stories and related drama
- * or variations on how to respond the next time someone says you don't look/sound/act Latina enough. I have found that replacing the U in Fuck with an * totally works for spicing up a glossy mag page.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. All questions are confidential and if used, your name is replaced with a sassy secret identity. So basically, ask me for solicited advice and I'll turn you into a super hero for free.
I kind of love me right now, too.
