An Introduction to Writerly Thoughts, Aspirations, Life, and the Occasional “Gods Why Do I Do This?”

Perhaps not the most original title for a post, especially the first, but I’ll go with it.
I’m starting this blog for many reasons, and it will include many topics regarding writing in the fantasy and sci-fi genres (I used to write dystopian fiction too, but reality got too close to the imagined.) and writing in general.
I have a lot to say. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
Scratch that. Writers know that’s bs. Sometimes writing is not enjoyable at all. The inner editor that won’t let you move forward, writer’s block, the procrastination, the word count woes, info dumps of first drafts you spent all that time writing and scenes that just don’t work so you must cut the bad to cure the body of work, like an eighteenth-century doctor draining your life’s blood to rid the body of bad humors. But, writing cuts are actually necessary and won’t kill you. I think. It feels like it.
Anyway, I have a lot to say about my writing adventures, characters might pop up here, scenes might show up, too.

Tammy loves to build worlds with words, exploring themes the effect of diaspora on the generations born elsewhere than their ancestors with the backdrop of tech or magic and dragons (sometimes both). These stories are inspired by her own family's immigrant experience. She's queer and many of her characters fall somewhere on the LGBTQIA spectrum (though that is not the focus of her work). She's married to an engineer who dances. Together they are raising three precocious teens in the Seattle suburbs. Two of her children are neurodiverse. Her experiences have taught her much about the world, its beauties and its injustices. All of this comes through in her fiction with a healthy dose of absurd humor.
