Pinned post

Essentially I have two current writing projects:

1. A long-format interactive science fiction story in five arcs, about a young guy on a future space colony who pilot-tests spaceships and invents things in his spare time, as he struggles to figure out what he wants to do with his life. And how one of the things he invents inadvertently leads to a war, that he and his friends have to help end.

Happy Pride Month! Here's an event from my org.

6/18 @ 2PM - Pride Storytime with Bi+ Georgia

This month, we're hosting Pride Storytime, a creative sharing social on our Discord channel. The goal is to create a story (short story, comic, whatever!) that you would've liked to have as a bi+ kid growing up. Please sign up to share your story here:
docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d

Our discord invite link is discord.gg/D4v2UjJ

sharing things I've written! 

Couple updates to the things I #amwriting:

Uploaded a short (1 min) vignette of Erika waking up as an Empath: nebulos.space/e&a_erika_existe

Also put a link to the epub version of act 1 of my book here: nebulos.space/e&a_act1.html

If you give it a read, let me know. It'll make my day. :)

My latest on Medium, Stop Feeding Trolls, in which I plead with people to stop engaging with bigots because all it does is contribute to stochastic terrorism. This is mostly a bird app problem, because of the way the algorithm works there.

Let's get a community conversation going!

Boosts appreciated!

Issue 28 of Indiepocalypse, the indie game anthology I run came out today. It features games from 10 developers, including 1 newly commissioned game.

Not only only is it a great way for you to find new indie devs but the devs also get paid up front and in royalties.

I'd love it if you checked it out!

Currently reading "Writing for games theory and practice" by Hannah Ricklin. It's really good. It doesn't just dive into plot but talks about the realities of game writing and processes. Recommended to non narrative devs too as I think it explains the job wonderfully. So much of the job can be explaining what it is.
There's even a section recommending what functionality your tools need.

My favorite Fantasy books, not in any particular order:

* The Vampire Lestat, Rice
* Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation/MDZS
* Kushiel's Dart, Carey
* Small Gods, Pratchett
* The Last Unicorn, Beagle
* Deep Wizardry, Duane

Licking Sound
May 15, 2022

abroad, the undertone changed
some background ever-presence
gone perfect-pitch astray
relative intervals between home
interstitial, absolutists
mathematically perfect

ignoring instrumental interdiction
theatres sine-cancelling by wire
entire redistribution in many-fold

rolling the five / six split
fifty-fifty, carrier
one can set palm against
insulator in buffer-space
national death rate written
carefully in generational rotation

piano as hearth-stone
most restive in that retrieval state
of utter-most outage

Hey, so, women with 4c hair - what sort of hair style would you use if you suddenly had to go survivalist in an apocalypse situation and you had very long natural hair?

#AmWriting #hair #POC #WOC

One of the things I miss about the Google plus interface was how easy it was to search for/find & create small communities of interest.

I wish there was a way to do that more simply in the fediverse.

Would love to find more #writers, especially #specfic (#sciencefiction & #fantasy) writers.

There are some hashtags that can help us find one another - #amwriting & #amwritingscifi for example, but I don't thing many folks use them.

So, where are my spec fic writers at???

(Boosts welcome!)

I feel like the biggest stickerguy fanboy sometimes, but their special this month is white ink on clear vinyl! Surely you can come up with a cool idea to apply on, say, a black laptop

Great news for people that are using the official Mastodon apps (at least on iOS for what I can see right now) - They have just added the local timeline in the latest update! It’s in a bit of a weird place though: you have to click the search icon and then you have different tabs one of which is called “community” that is essentially the local timeline of your server. Pretty neat!

my last #introductions post is pretty dusty so ... here we go. I'm one of the old-timers who joined the fediverse in early 2017. got a blog at technomancy.us

I grew up in Indonesia and Singapore and lived in Thailand a few years.

I write software for a living but I try not to make my feed here be just about that kind of stuff. trying to decolonize my head but it's a slow process, and I rely on help from those who have been doing it longer.

in the past I've supported the free software movement, but nowadays it's clear to me they've lost their way and that no meaningful user-empowering movement can succeed without an explicit anti-capitalist foundation.

I lead the development of the #fennel programming language and like to participate in game jams for fun: technomancy.us/games

I make weird keyboards: atreus.technomancy.us

WOW. Yeah I've been on mastadon for like only five days now but I'm already flabbergasted at the world that should have been... w3.org/TR/activitypub/#Overvie

Like literally how did we all agree to just NOT have interoperable social networks??? Looking at the activity pub docs makes it clear how ridiculously easy that would have been. You want my content? Just GET my outbox. Want to send me something? Just POST to my inbox. The server can be anything you want, just format your messages in this (VERY INTUITIVE!) way. It's so simple it's STUPID.

I'm very new to all of this, so I'll admit that there's a lot I don't know, but what is painfully obvious right now is how, yet again, the tendrils of Capitalism have fundamentally altered the STRUCTURE of the Internet to make it less open, less empowering and generally WORSE for most users. However, what's also becoming clear is that it does not have to be that way, and being here is in some small way, bringing about that better possible future.

Heyo, it’s time for an #introduction ! Hello, you fabulous people of Mastodon. I‘m pretty new to this app and English is not my first language so bear with me😄 My name is Ellie. I’m a digital and traditional artist from Germany and I love to draw spooky and witchy things in black and white. It would be awesome to meet fellow artists on here! I will post more of my #illustrations soon 💗
