Tips (Caregiving)

This article has a lot to say about Ehlers Danlos that matches my experiences (especially the disconnect between what I can do and what I feel I should be able to). I also found the notes about caregiving from a caregiver’s perspective to be important regardless of what causes the need for caregiving to arise. (Via Ehlers-Danlos Society)

Serial (Fiction)

Coat of Scarlet by Siri Paulson is a gay steampunk romance that sucked me in from the beginning. It’s a rich tapestry of a world where a talented tailor catches the attention of an airship pirate first by craft, then by character. It is also an example of why I don’t read serials, because I didn’t realize it wasn’t finished yet when I began. There are five installments available, and the fifth acts as a conclusion (albeit an interim one) so I’ve decided to post it now. Coat of Scarlet is a compelling tale with complex characters drawn from across professions, classes, and identities. If you’re comfortable waiting for serialized works to unfold, or willing to accept an interim conclusion for now, give it a try. (Note: This author also appears in the flash anthology Migration, sharing a Table of Contents with me.)
