    Having Daddy Issues

    I’ve taken the step recently of doing something I said I would never do: I’ve started asking my kids to stop calling me ‘Dad’. I didn’t want to do it. When I first told them about my being transgender in December, I vowed at the time that they could call me ‘Dad’ for as long as […]

    New URL — What Do You Think?

    I’m finally here! I finally got the new URL up and running. Hooray! And I am 95% happy with the design right now. I know, never satisfied, right? But this is close. It wasn’t what I had in my head, but it’s something I can work with for awhile. I might change the colors a […]

    On the Job Front

    So here’s some good news: I got a job. It’s not the kind of job that will put food on the table, pay the mortgage, and cover health insurance, but it is a job nonetheless. More importantly, it is a job writing. Specifically, I am now a contributor to Gamer Headlines, a video game news site. It’s sort […]

    Being Alison Hudson

    So it’s a day later and the decision’s been made. I’m retiring Alison Edwards. As a nom de plume, she is no more. She has ceased to be. She’s expired and gone to meet her maker.She’s off the twig. She’s a stiff. She’s bereft of life. She rests in peace. She’s curled up her tootsies […]

    Being Alison Edwards?

    It may be time to kill off Alison Edwards. No, not kill off my authentic identity. But to kill off this pen name / pseudonymous last name I have been using for the last year and a half online. It’s making my life more complicated than it needs to be right now and it’s feeling […]

    Being Alison

    With all the things that have happened in my life the past few weeks, I’ve been unable to appreciate what is, in many ways, the most important thing to have happened: I’m living as myself now full time. It’s odd. I had a plan; I had a date. September 1 was going to be an […]

    Happy Fourth of July!

    It’s the Fourth of July, and I’m glad for it. I could use a relaxing shower of explosion and sparks this week. This has been a pretty shitty week overall. Had to replace my hot water heater AND the exhaust chimney; had to clean up the water that flooded out when the old one broke; […]

    Holy Crap, Leviticus is Scary

    So, since I last checked in with you all, I have been doing what Nancy and I discussed: writing! Well, specifically, I’ve been going over all the projects I’ve never finished before and deciding which ones are worth picking back up and which ones are worth leaving in the reject bin. I’ve been revising some […]
