Good Morning America used one of my tweets this morning!
I wrote the tweet in response to the vile statements by the CEO of Abercrombie & Fitch. GMA only used part of the tweet, the rest read:
“Abercrombie & Fitch are the worst. In case you don’t know why, read this. Douchebaggery at its most repugnant.”
You can read the Amy Taylor article I was talk about here.

Creatavist is a digital publishing platform from the team that brought us long form non-fiction publisher/app The Atavist.
I managed to swing myself an invite to the Beta version, and last week I used the platform to publish a short story.
I’m not easily impressed (something to do with copious amounts of self-loathing) but I’ve been running round like a giddy schoolgirl all week telling everyone who will listen how great Creatavist is. Let me explain why.
The platform allows content creators - writers, photographers, filmmakers - to easily publish multimedia stories for apps, ebooks, and the web.
Their tagline is ‘Storytelling without limits’ and after playing with the software for five minutes it’s easy to see why. Firstly, It’s simple to use.
Secondly; the finished product looks pretty fucking spiffy.
