Introducing trans and/or intersex characters - some common and less common pitfalls!
(A note that here I also include all sorts of nonbinary, genderqueer, gender-nonconforming and other kinds of non-cis / gender-atypical characters too, even if they are not explicitly labeled trans; but that wouldn't fit into the word limit. Sorry about that!)
A few words about me before I get to the pitfalls:

I both edit and review a lot of trans-related fiction. I edited Transcendent 2: The Year's Best Transgender Speculative Fiction 2016 (#Lammys winner) and the upcoming Transcendent 3 too. :)

So patterns stand out after a while!

🖋️ Worldbuilding thread! 🖋️

Some pitfalls related to shapeshifting, gender, and trans people.
As usual for my worldbuilding threads, this is not to subtweet any specific story, but rather to point out larger trends / common issues.

(I read a lot of trans-related fiction and currently edit a trans anthology series, Transcendent: The Year's Best Transgender SFF.)
My previous trans-themed worldbuilding thread was here:

🖋️ Worldbuilding thread! 🖋️

How (not) to include trans people as background characters - some common mistakes.
Just a note: this thread is not subtweeting the stories I am currently reading for #Transcendent3: Year's Best Transgender SFF

(submit here:… scroll down)

It was inspired by several books I recently read - what I'll say will be more relevant to long-form.
(Please don't try to guess the books from my Goodreads feed, I usually don't add the books I DNF within the first few chapters. ;) )

These are common issues that appear in many, many books - and increasingly so, as writers try to be more trans-inclusive (which is good)

Today on #diversestories: You Will Never Know What Opens by @mari_ness, @LightspeedMag Dec 2017.…

2100 words, contemporary portal fantasy deconstruction + sense of wonder + feels!

(Content warning for physical injury + threat of death.)
Choice quote :) :
"Up until then, you’d just assumed that most people couldn’t even see the doors, let alone go through them; you’d had plumbers in to fix the bathroom after the cheetah incident, and they hadn’t seen anything."
I really liked the feelings the protagonist had about the portals and how this conflicted with everyday life, the need to pay bills, etc.

I also enjoyed the second person narration! I only realized halfway through the story was in second person, it's done very smoothly -
