My Month Off

As you may have noticed, I took some time off.

For those that don't know, I work against an anxiety disorder and, lately, depression. Writing has been difficult, if not impossible.

It's more than "I don't want to" or "I don't feel like it." It's an all-consuming frustration that makes me second-guess every move and decision. My brain freaks out and shuts down or flies into panic. I have a hard time just doing and understanding the basic parts of life. Sleep, eat, shower, work, eat, sleep.

I slept too much...

I didn't care that I'd published a book. I couldn't be bothered to finish the last few edits for the sequel. My mind kept taking steps in-between reality and dreamtime.

But I'm back! (I hope)

It seems like just yesterday we interviewed Lara Perez Takai and Megumi Nishikura about their film, which features the different experiences of mixed-race in Japan.

We can't wait to see it!
