“First forget inspiration. Habit is more dependable. Habit will sustain you whether you’re inspired or not. Habit will help you finish and polish your stories. Inspiration won’t. Habit is persistence in practice.”
Octavia E. Butler. “Furor Scribendi.” In Bloodchild and Other Stories, 137-144. New York, NY: Seven Stories Press, 2005. (emphasis mine)
Founded in May 2008, Nunez Daughter is an experiment in digital autobiography and archive. It expands on thoughts formulated in a seminar paper titled, “‘I’m On to You:’ Troubling Performances of Race, Gender and Class.” The Radical Woman of Color blogosphere (including brownfemipower, Prof Susurro, The Anxious Black Woman, Noemi and Suky) provided the original inspiration, love and support even as the rapid, organic and global growth of the blogosphere has expanded, deepened and changed my own views on everything from civil rights for transgender people to histories of slavery.
We are always in process.
