overcoming fear of the blank page

Quoted in this week’s Central mag, Roller Derbyist Simone Boudoir expresses surprise that most of the other Roller Derby women are from around Newtown.

I don’t know why that is; maybe the girls from the Eastern Suburbs are a bit princessy.



Or maybe, despite what Hollywood movies might try to tell you, Roller Derby is the second dykiest sport in the world (behind soccer) and Newtown and surrounds is the dykiest area of Sydney. Just maybe.
