Thank you for following!, a reminder to trolls: if you send me misogynistic abuse, I will use it to raise money for myself. It works beautifully.I'm an artist for #TheResistance, supported entirely by patrons like you! Currently offline to finish a new novel.…"New favorite word: Persisterhood" h/t @JennWalkup

Thank you, @IndivisibleTeam. NOBODY GIVE UP.'ll have to survive without my tweets about smoked oysters and menstrual blood. I think you can though. I have faith.And it'll be my primary contribution to #TheResistance in the next few months, along with regular calls & protests. Short term + long term.Why am I going off social media? To finish the Very Ambitious Novel. Believe me. It'll take all of my concentration.Clear as day. Conway just broke the law in the Briefing Room. Shame we disbanded Congress.
Retweeted by Monica Byrne @pedestrian Lovely.Today is the day I go off social media for a long time!--I am very excited. I'll still be on Patreon, though. Duh.The wind woke me up. Might as well have my cereal.anyway. i have no point except to say what i said. goodnight. :)i'm thinking of my niece & nephew in public school, thinking: OK, we'll have to be their teachers, like my parents & sibs were for me.and that norm--the absence of standards in schools, which i had a safety net for--is what i imagine we're in for with education came mostly from my family, is what i'm saying, and without that i'd be in a very different place.there were ~10 teachers who were incredible, dedicated, brilliant. the rest were there because they couldn't get a teaching certificate.i keep wanting to chime in with how much public schools benefited me but i went to destitute Catholic schools K-12.

Retweeted by Monica ByrneAnd you better believe every Senator who voted to put Jeff Sessions’s radical hatred into @TheJusticeDept will hear from all of us, too.
Retweeted by Monica ByrneIf Jeff Sessions makes even the tiniest attempt to bring his racism, sexism & bigotry into @TheJusticeDept, he'll hear from all of us.
Retweeted by Monica ByrneIf Jeff Sessions turns a blind eye while @realDonaldTrump violates the Constitution or breaks the law, he'll hear from all of us.
Retweeted by Monica ByrneThere’s no Rule 19 to silence me from talking about Jeff Sessions anymore. So let me say loudly & clearly: This is just the beginning.
