Hey book people! I am looking for 3-5 beta readers to review and critique (and maybe heap praise, if that's your kind of thing) a manuscript for a mentorship submission coming up in 2 weeks.
- 1 week starting Wednesday to review act 1 (approx. 30,000 words)
- 2 weeks after that for the remaining 65,000 words
Story is dark, urban fantasy involving a girl who spies on rich people and sells their secrets, and she uncovers a private club of fae which exposes her and them to hunters.
covid-19 social distancing risk chart (full description in reply)
Someone shared the following graphic - obtained from https://www.bmj.com/content/370/bmj.m3223 - on a group chat we're in.
It describes COVID-19 transmission risk given different group activity circumstances - occupancy, presence of face coverings, duration, ventilation of space, and volume of speech.
It's a little complicated, but it's probably a lot better than "stay six feet apart" in terms of evaluating risk for people who want specific risk criteria.
Gonna post a reply describing the full chart, block by block, for anyone who finds it illegible.
9/11, US imperialism
9/11 is coming up, which means i'm legally obligated to point out 9/11 here in chile is a different tragedy & also important
the 11th of september is when the chilean right wing (funded by the US gov.) bombed our gov. building, killed our democratically elected socialist president, gutted the welfare state & enacted martial law
followed by 17 years of a violent fascist dictatorship in which at least 3k people died, 40k were victimized and half of the country was traumatized
