There have been a lot of deeply ponderous think pieces & interview questions on the subject of the #Hugo novel ballot being five women and one man this year, and WHAT THAT MEANS.

So I did a little research. A thread.
I have been publishing professionally for 15 years. My first book came out in 2004.

The 2004 #Hugo ballot?

Was *exactly* the same ratio of men to women, with the genders reversed.

One woman on the novel slate, four nominations for women in total, the rest all men.
There were two major differences (notwithstanding categories that didn’t exist in 2004):

This year two of the nominated men are the same author, @pdjeliclark

The nominated women? Connie Willis, Lois McMaster Bujold, Kage Baker, Catherine Asaro.

You had to be a legend.

Alright yall, #2019 is the year I speak more things into existence, so I’m just gonna say it: @HugoAwards nominations are open. My book #BodymindsReimagined is eligible for Best Related Work as an academic work on speculative fiction. Praying someone who can nominate sees this.
#BodymindsReimagined is an accessible academic text from @DukePress on (dis)ability, race & gender in black women’s speculative fiction like that of @OctaviaEButler, @nkjemisin & @Nalo_Hopkinson. Twitter, do your thing & bring me a #Hugo nomination for Best Related Work. 🤞🏾🤞🏾🤞🏾
Need more evidence? Here’s an unsolicited @goodreads review in which the person says they got a date after telling someone about my book. So I’m not saying reading & nominating #BodymindsReimagined will get you dates but I’m not saying that’s NOT what will happen either...

Auguste #Rodin es un escultor francés que nació en Paris en el 1840. Considerado el padre de la escultura moderna, su importancia se debe a la ruptura con el canon académico que imperaba en el siglo XIX en Francia

Su obra #ElHombreDeLaNarizRota fue rechazada por el Salón y recibió malas criticas, por ser "inacabada". Tras 10 años presenta la versión completada de la obra pero su presencia pasa inadvertida.Aun así él la considera como su”primera buena escultura”
En 1876 viaja a Italia donde estudia las obras de Donatello y Miguel Ángel y posteriormente crea #LaEdadDeBronce que muestra una época de dolor y sufrimiento.Por su acentuado naturalismo la obra hizo pensar a algunos críticos que se trataba del vaciado de un modelo vivo.

#HurricaneFlorence taken 5 hours ago ... almost a perfect storm. Should be similar to #Hugo so just go check out the damage photos.
The eye of #HurricaneFlorence taken about 2 hours ago ... storm strengthening and waves 83 feet high! People staying in those beach houses will have no idea what to do as their home comes completely apart around them. We'll see bare sand when it's all over.
#HurricaneFlorence target. Category 4 and strengthening. 83 foot waves ... surf's up!

Should be similar to #Hugo so just go check out the damage photos.
