I’m an #AmazingAmputee with pretty aggressive lupus that keeps trying to klll me. It’s literally it’s mission. BUT I’m really hard to kill and instead of dying these days, I’m drinking too much coffee (with coconut oil and milk because of the ulcer!), using cuss words sparingly, and still addicted to helping folks through my work at NYLPI and my endless years of organizing and art activism.

I originally put this page together to support folks doing their own art. But folk kept asking me about mine. And I was like, Oh yeah, I am an artist, aren’t I? Lol! I almost forgot! And I’m creative from time to time, when hang up my cape. But I don’t hang it up enough. 

I’m
going to work on 3– YES 3– creative projects. 

Project one: a book 18 years in the making, since I’ve been writing it THAT long! My first memoir. I KNOW I’m only 34, going on 35, but it feels more like 85. I’ve lived a thousand lifetimes already in this short amount of time. I have so many stories, that seem so unbelieavable, that I have to tell them. And people on social media have already told me they’d buy it. Who knew I had a fan club?! Can you imagine what the second will be like??? 

Project two: first of many children’s books. When I first became an amputee, I didn’t know how to live my life. Of course I met other amputees in various stages, who told me that everything would be fine. But I wouldn’t know anything about that until I experienced that myself. Especially since I hadn’t met any other Above and Below knee amputees, who were young women and wanted to kee active. 5 years later, I’ve learned so much about myself and what I can and can’t do. And that all amputees aren’t the same. And that what works for me may not work for someone else. I’m writing this children’s book to show kids that our differences make us great. And that a wonderful thing. And even through our differences, we can find things in common. We don’t all have to be the same or look the same to have things in common.

Project three: many part graphic novel. A smart-ass spy is double crossed by her boss and losses both legs in the process. Once she gets out of the hospital and rehab and recovers, they attempt to kill her again. She’s still a trained killer and now has titanium legs. It’s quick wit, fast paced story-line, and jaw-dropping reason as to why they wanted to kill her will leave you coming back for more. She may even become bionic, which she isn’t. Her legs come off at it. 

They all cater to disabled people of color, but definitely relate to everyone. Everyone will be able to look at these characters, even me, and see themselves.

Unfortunately, there’s no guarantee that publishers will throw money at me. I KNOW, RIGHT??? I’d throw money at me! Sheesh!

And since I’ll have to ge a new computer to draw out the graphics and childrens book (I know what I want Surface Pro 6) so that a professional can then take a stab at it AFTER my first draft is done. I can’t half ass this. At all! So I’ll need to raise these funds to do it, to keep it going while I’m doing it. And if I need to go to a conference on writing or a podcasting thing to help my creativity, I can use the funds for that too. This will help me do all things creative, so I don’t have to self sacrifice! 

So let’s do this! Together! While I’m healing my ulcer, I’m going to be doing a lot of writing, and as many of my writer friends know, I’ll also be day dreaming into existence as well. ANY suggestions are welcomed! I’ll be going to writing groups and coffee shops all over the city too, so I can get out of the house to write/draw/be creative!
