Quotes[edit | edit source]

« When I'm writing anything my main concern is: is this good? Is this really fucking good? Will it surprise, refresh, delight, intimidate? Is it gorgeous? Is it horrifying? Importantly, I don't want to bore anyone. I don't want to waste anyone’s time. I am a hungry, questioning creature who likes to work out my philosophical queries on the page, but I want it to be a fun ride for anyone who’s bought a ticket. I want everything I write to be striking, regardless of genre.[8] »
« i am a gender liberationist. i want to live in a world that does not coercively assign children into one of two categories & punish the ones who do not conform to it. thanks for listening, pals.[9] »
