A10 Many more outlets for work thru self-pub, small press. But also still tuff to keep producing work and get it out there. #blacklitchat

We tend to lump "messups" as evil; often they are still lovable. We shake our heads and wonder why they can't get it together. #blacklitchat

@bernadettedavis A9 I wanted Ray to be a full char. Partly because he's alcoholic, black man. Didn't want to write stereotype #blacklitchat

A9 Chapter 3 makes us love Ray, too. It wld be easy to be against him if we didn't see the beginning. Josie has to see it too. #blacklitchat

A9 - I loved reading Josie's retelling of her parents falling in love (Chpt 3). Clarifies why her mother gave so many chances. #blacklitchat
