In these free-wheeling conversations-with-self, author r.r. campbell embraces what it means to live life unscripted, unedited, and unafraid by ruminating on the nature of identity, self-care, the creative process, and more.

    Just Have Fun! (The D&D Episode) - Just Me 019

    Sometimes, you just have to have fun. In this episode, we do just that by talking all things Dungeons and Dragons, or at least all things related to my recent decision to retire a character and embrace a new one who's better suited for dungeon crawling.

    Reckonings on Race in Publishing - Just Me 018

To do so, I explore my own journey and possible missteps.



    Topics discussed include: performative allyship, writing POC as a white author, equity in publishing, the EMPATHY sci-fi saga, self-examination, and next steps

    Topics discussed include: revealing the month's music one week earlier than planned, looking forward and back, a cat who won't go quietly into that good night, hypercorrections, egocentrism, and belonging

    With All Apologies to Jugglers - Just Me 016

    Sorry, jugglers. I really blew it. Or maybe I didn't? You'll have to let me know.



    In this episode, I borrow deeply from my perceptions of juggler lore to explore when, exactly, we should attempt to juggle "all the things," as well as how we can reach our decision about whether to add another ball to our juggling routine in the first place.



    Assuming, you know, it's called a routine. Sorry again, jugglerfolk.



    Topics discussed include: sassiness revisited, meeting in the middle, the metaphor machine, hot takes, when and how we decide to one-up our jugglerdom
