excited to share that *Hillary Rettig, *one of our SoJust Skillshare
presenters and longtime SoJuster, is taking preorders for her new book,*"The Seven Secrets of the Prolific: The Definitive Guide to Overcoming
Procrastination, Perfectionism and Writer's Block."* Procrastination is
disempowerment, and this book identifies the major forces that cause that
disempowerment, including perfectionism, scarcity, internalized oppression,
and exploitative career paths, and tells you how to overcome them. It's a
great book for all writers and students, and anyone wishing to become more
productive. She's offering 30%+ discounts for preorders (available in
paperback or ebook). Mention SoJust when you order and she'll give us a
donation. Preorder: http://igg.me/p/31389?a=167905&i=shlk Read sample

*Socializing for Justice - www.sojust.org*
Since 2006, we've been building this great sandbox where we can bring
progressives of all stripes together and try out new ideas in this "Movement
Moment". Spaces like this are crucial as we start to reframe and build new
visions for our movement(s).
With over 1750 members and almost 5 years of creating a diverse cross-issue
community in Boston (95+ events!), Socializing for Justice is the best place
to find the great people, organizations and community you're looking for
while putting the SOCIAL back in social justice.
*YES, WE MEAN YOU.* We've got members of all ages, races, genders, sexual
orientations, levels of activism and professions. We hope you see someone
like yourself and meet someone you otherwise wouldn't have.
