I rarely comment on the happenings in #Romancelandia. I'm a lurker. But I have a few things to say and get off my chest because this weekend seriously sucked. So forgive the very long post. Eight years ago, I was in a toxic job. /1?
they never respected my feelings, belittled me and I could never trust them. My instincts were right. I sought other job opportunities, but they fired me before I could get out. I’d never been fired before. Ever. That very day I laid in my bed, arm slung over my eyes /2?
and asked God what should I do. Me and God…we’ve had these types of convos and He usually comes through. I got the strong impression that I needed to get my butt out of bed and write. Prior to that day, I’d been dabbling in writing for a few years, but day job came 1st. /3?

First up at #popcaanz18 this morning: @MTRamosGarcia, talking about Jane the Virgin, metafiction and bilingualism.
Ramos-Garcia: one of the more original features of Jane the Virgin is the omniscient meta-fictional narrator, playing into the tropes of the telenovela. #PopCAANZ18
Ramos-Garcia: the script calls him the "ubiquitous Latin lover narrator". #PopCAANZ18

So far there are 3 things I’ve gotten crazy Twitter attention for: trolling white supremacists, talking about Asian representation in Anime and now romance novels. What a wide variety of subjects 😂
Had a few questions about why I even went to the hearing. Answer: I read smart romance and am part of this huge community (hi 600 something new followers) and thought it ridiculous that a trademark was being pursued for a generic adjective.
I am not a court reporter. I work on photo features that focus on climate change and weather things (see bio). But when I saw this entire cockygate (plus bookstuffing) situation going on, I kept wondering who’d cover it.

K firstly. Judge denied the TRO. #cockygate
Judge said it was not clear that the defendant used the word cocky in a way indicating source as a series, but as description of it.
Judge also said that it seems that the readers are very well acquainted in the genre of romance. Dismissing the original docs saying on defendants end that readers are easily confused.
