Oh no :(
If you just jumped because you heard someone in the distance screaming “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO,” that was me.
Octavia Butler (June 22, 1947 - 2006) was one of the very few African-American women s-f writers in an otherwise male-dominated field…
On her own position:
“I’m a 48-year-old writer who can remember being a 10-year-old writer and who expects someday to be an 80-year-old writer. I’m also comfortably asocial — a hermit in the middle of Los Angeles — a pessimist if I’m not careful, a feminist, a Black, a former Baptist, an oil-and-water combination of ambition, laziness, insecurity, certainty, and drive.”
I’m being completely sincere when I say I will name any daughter of mine after her.
Make sure to use copy paper and a laser print copy- it works best this way. Also, to those who are having issues getting all the paper residue off, here’s a tip: get as much paper as you can off, then wet the image with water again so the paper is no longer visible, then apply the mod podge before it’s dry. I found this helps for me.
