I’m looking to make a connection, care about writing as a transcendent experience, and see it as a way to access the atmosphere of the mind. I approach it as art.

Experience is never limited and it is never complete; it is an immense sensibility, a kind of huge spider-web, of the finest silken threads, suspended in the chamber of consciousness and catching every air-borne particle in its tissue. It is the very atmosphere of the mind.

From “The Art of Fiction” by Henry James

My newsletter is mostly essays about my life. As an autistic writer, I’m sincere and earnest and work hard on every post.

About the Author

Amy Yuki Vickers is the author of short stories, personal essays, and a memoir (hopefully, upcoming).

She’s autistic, so she see-saws between intense occupation and recovery. Besides writing, she enjoys hiking and ballet, or at least, she did before she got so tired.

She’s been a black belt in karate, a professional reiki practitioner, a yoga teacher, an ESL teacher, a web developer, and a data analyst. Academically, she’s studied drawing, art history, and integral health.

Amy is Japanese-American. Born in Long Beach, CA, she has lived in Wisconsin, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Tokyo, Los Angeles, and now lives in Orange County, CA.

She also has a second newsletter, called Lovely Little Things, which is casual, sporadic, and about the minutia of daily life.
