caseythegreat asked: I like to know the names of things. Would you happen to know the name for the type of stories in which multiple characters take turns telling stories? I enjoy the format. "Worlds' End" and "October In The Chair" are two of my favorites, along with Clarke's "Tales From The White Hart." The format seems to date at least as far back as Chaucer, but I can't seem to find the actual terminology for this style of storytelling. Do you know what it is called?

neil-gaiman:

It tends to be referred to as a “Club story”. If you read the Encyclopedia of Science Fiction article at http://www.sf-encyclopedia.com/entry/club_story it will tell you everything you want to know and lots of things you didn’t know you wanted to know, in a long article by John Clute.

Qayqa is a club story.

Reclaiming the Latina Tag

The first thing I read when I woke up this morning, was a link a friend had sent me about Reclaiming the Latina Tag. The story is here: http://www.buzzfeed.com/yezminvillarreal/these-women-are-using-selfies-to-reclaim-latina-identity-on

I was surprised at myself. The question of heritage and identity is incredibly important to my writing and my person, and yet I had never thought to use the hashtag “Latina”. It had just never occurred to me! But after reading Xochilt Montaño's online campaign, I vow this will all change. 

Thank you, Hannah, for opening my eyes this morning!

Here is my first #Latina #selfie: writer, aerialist, traveller and friend.

Visiting #Caral, the #cradle of #civilisation in the #Americas, the very oldest city!!! On an international scale, Caral was after Mesopotamia and contemporary to Egypt and China. The pyramids were beautiful. This year is the 20th anniversary of its discovery. The temples will be lit up, campers are welcome, and shamans will perform ceremonies. If you are in #Peru on the last Friday in #October, you should go!
