#LitsyFamily, I have another incredibly wonderful long-time close friend of mine who has joined us 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Please give a warm welcome to @NYzTRiNiTY 🤗! She‘s a #NYC lady again after having been in Oklahoma for awhile.
I‘d tag all 6,000+ of you amazing Littens, but my fingers would revolt 🙈, so if I could just tag a few of you, could we get a #WelcomeWagon going? Thank you! 😁
#LitsyFamily! I‘m so happy right now 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🕺!
One of my all-time best friends has now joined Litsy!
Please say hi to @AmyRebecca and give her a follow ☺️. She‘s so awesome!
She‘s a fellow hardcore bibliophile who is in Florida and is looking for more positive and bookish friends, and you all definitely fit this bill.
Welcome Train please? If I tagged all 6,500 of you wonderful Littens, I‘d be up all night. 🙈

This book gave me so much food for thought. It‘s given me more perspective on the type of fiction I want to write, and how to write disability and image differences with sensitivity.
This book opens up the conversation about ableism, which is long overdue. I highly recommended!
Also, I noticed that the author, @CarlyFindlay has joined Litsy, so let‘s put her on the #LitsyWelcomeWagon !
Another great read! 👏🏻 I appreciated the honesty in Carly‘s book. I loved that she made me uncomfortable, as odd as that sounds. She writes in such an engaging & entertaining way, that when she tells it like it is & points out the privileges that non-disabled people have, you bloody well listen! Carly provides ideas & advice on how to be an ally to the disabled & visible differences community, along with ways to make some real changes. 💪🏻
In answer to this question: yes. My partner was offered a disability ‘job‘, and they were extremely interested in using his previous experience and training and paying him a pittance for his trouble. Here‘s a news flash for employers: disabled people like/want/need money just as much as anyone else!
Don‘t assume ‘they‘ll just be grateful to have a job.‘
Wisdom from Carly and Stella.
An excellent message from this great author today: ‘please don‘t forget your disabled sisters when celebrating.‘ Happy International Women‘s Day, everyone ♥️♥️♥️
