I hosted the September 2019 Carnival of Aces on the theme “Telling Our Stories“. Here are the submissions. Thank you to all who participated!
Para wrote about how ace representation makes them feel.
strangeperspectivesonstuff wrote Stories Untold about the stories they don’t see and the stories they want to see.
Perfect Number talks about how we need to see more than one story to know who we are.
EldenInger wrote about future stories he hopes to write.
Mark tells his story and mentions why stories are important.
Coyote brings you The Glossary and the Gristmill, about how we need to tell our stories, how our stories can be misused by the community, and how we need to be able to control who our audience is.
Siggy talks about telling your second (and third and fourth) story.
I wrote about being an Ambassador from Aceland and how that leads to self-censorship. And to be super-meta, I also wrote about why I chose this topic. And as a side-quest, I tried to make #sixwordacestories a thing on the Twitterer doo-hickey.
And thank you to all of you who tell your stories, whatever form they may take!
(If your entry didn’t show up here, that means I didn’t see it. Please drop me a message or a comment and I’ll include it! Also, if you’re running a few days past the end of the month, that’s completely fine. Just send me a note and I’ll add you. And if I’ve misrepresented/missummarized any of your submitted posts, please let me know and I’ll fix that up.)
The October Carnival of Aces is being hosted by Ace Week, on the theme of “Reaching In, Reaching Out“.
