I will miss #writing this stuff when I’m done, really love the #1kYears cast. Episode 8/9 Double Trouble of my near future VR neuroscience kind of quarterly soap series is now available. Thanks to my nuisance of a well paid day job, it’s free:
It might be easier to start with episode one, here’s the full 8x20k lot:
As of today, I've been a full-time writer for five years.
Still not sure how I'm getting away with this, but gonna write a blog post anyway. #writing

„Phase two, step one, engage.”
Olu wouldn’t mind Samaria’s voice to be a tad softer.

I'm now thinking of changing it to Public, since people annoyed by the two botposts in public timelines can filter on bot. (Or mute glitchbot in particular.)
What do you think?
Can you write a novel as a group? This New Yorker article made me laugh, and made me want to try it.
Thanks a lot for your thoughts and advice on my earlier musings around #betateaderresponseanxiety very much appreciated!
Now I’m curious: How do you proceed with your beta readers? Oral or written feedback? Are you using templates to help them structure feedback?
Here is mine:
