About Dandelion

Hi everyone ! 

I'm a French non-binary writer, a theatre PhD student, a metalhead and a rain lover owned by a cat (don't worry, she treats me well). 
I write, and write, and write, and again. In French and in English. 
I write novels, theatre plays, songs, (very) short stories and stuffs with no label. I write weird things. I write story. I make up words if needed. I also write about schizophrenia, what it's really like, and what it's not. 
In between, I eat chocolate and read books.
And I am here for two reasons.

Poussiè·res turning into Dust
I'd like to offer my last novel Poussiè·res to my English readers. Which means a lot of translation work. Which means time. Time that I don't have because of being broke in a capitalist society. If you support me here, I'll be able to translate it, and you get to read every chapter week after week as I move on the translation road. Before anyone else. 

What is it about? Will you rightfully ask.
One day, Medusa wakes up in the body of a contemporary woman. She doesn't know how she ended up here. In fact, it seems that she has a life here, but has no recollection of it. How did this creature from the Greek mythology end up here? Why?
Through the eyes of three different women, the novel tries to explore the rape culture. M., Mélusine and Max(ine) will try to build their identity and overcome the social pressure and wounds they had to suffer. 

(PS : I suck at summary. So as soon as I finish translating the first chapter, I'll probably make it in a public post so you can have a glimpse !)

The Schizophrenic Linguistics
I work on this project for years now. First secretly, then publicly in a blog (first on Tumblr, but working on moving it to Medium). I live with schizophrenia and often suffer from the public missundertanding of it. For years, I waited for someone who would explained it, debunk it to the public. I grew tired of waiting, so I started the work. Through fiction, vulgarisation of scientific papers and non-fiction articles, I'm working on creating a better understand of what schizophrenia really is. Spoiler alert: it's not like in the movie.
But this cost a lot of (mental) energy, and time. Your support here will also enable me to write more regularly on this blog, maybe buy more books about schizophrenia, (anti)psychiatry and neurodivergence so I can do an even better work, aaaaand maybe I'll be able to make enough time to translate to French so it can be accessible to French people too ! By supporting me, you'll have my new article before everyone else. And I'll try to organise video Q&A.

About the tiers:
Whatever you pay will give you equal access to my contents. I know it can sound unfair... but I didn't see what I could offer more... and more importantly, whatever you can afford, you all worth the same to me! Your support has no price and I want you to know that whatever you can afford, it's amazing, and I love and thank you. I hope this is ok for you (if not, well, you can let me know).

Thank you for reading this.
I hope I'll be able to talk to you soon.

Take care of yourself in the meantime !
Goals
