A long conversation with thiccoq
About a year ago, thiccoq on Twitter asked me if I would come on his show. At the time I wasn’t ready to do podcasts, so I told him I would need to think about it.
This week, I was finally ready. I’ve gotten other requests to go on people’s shows, but I wanted to go back to thiccoq. Through our initial discussions I knew that we’d get into some deep waters together; his questions as we exchanged DM’s were thoughtful and comprehensive, he was really seriously reading my work. Besides, he asked first.
As a new writer moments like these feel like stepping further into another world. When I write, I inhabit a private reality for a period of time while I commit some vision to paper. When I share it with the world, that vision has a chance to maybe grow and take on some firmer substance. Dreams held in common must be actively sustained if they are to survive. So when someone responds to a piece that I’ve written with a desire to explore, it’s like watching some doubtful expedition finally land on a firm surface. I can breathe a sigh of relief that my vision will be okay and even survive without me. I’m just beginning to experience this as a writer, so I’m intensely grateful to thiccoq for his interest, and the chance to mutually explore these dreams that no longer belong soley to me: now they belong to you, my readers.
Here’s the link to the discussion. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed having this wonderful conversation with thiccoq:
