One more moment of pride, episode 7 of my 1kYears series is now available for download. My English doesn’t feel like improving, but I do manage a very steady flow of output.

“Virtual Wrongs” is about law and order, a bit of a taboo topic for libertarians, and all the more fun to muse about.

Calling all #Fediverse admins of instances in the #EU. The #CopyrightDirective is coming, we need to show the MEPs how massively the EU Internets will be affected.

We are preparing a list of all EU-based #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale, and any other instances.

Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.

Please help. This is important.

Polly Jackson was an escaped slave who settled in the community of Africa, Ohio and worked as an agent of the Underground Railroad helping others escape. Polly was known for fighting off slave catchers with a butcher knife and a kettle of boiling water.


I made a game. ‘Lovers in Freefall’, a game of Belonging Outside Belonging and love beyond wartime. A game about going AWOL in the middle of destructive conflict, resisting violence with love, turning a former weapon into a makeshift home.
Hold your lover's hand, ride into the black, take your Messer with you, and don't look back.
Check it out at—and while you’re passing through, take a look at all the rad stuff other peopl…

Engage in random acts of kindness and altruism. This has been linked to mood boosting.

What are the :mastodon: #instances out there focused on #writers and #writing?

Fosstodon is great, but maybe I need another place to show the #writer side of myself 🤔

It‘s February already? The bloody month where all stupid promises of the ‚we’ll do that next year, OK?‘ type come back to haunt us? And there’s one more Monday ahead? Plus a dreadful business trip in preparation? Anyone else suffering from such day job side effects might look at this future ordeal to cheer up:

The ‘Fears of a Clown’ submission window is now open.

I’m looking for short stories for a forthcoming anthology. Scary, thrilling, unnerving, or weird stories featuring clowns; but ones where the clown isn’t the thing that’s scary, where there’s something worse.

Full details here:

Hi, I'm me. I don't have it in me right now to write a proper introduction but there's a bunch of residue over at mast.soc if you check out @pagrus

I also am excited to use @pagrus soonish when I get my hands on a better camera.

Hoping to find a job in #datascience soon, either as a data engineer, data scientist, or data analyst. I like techniques that are explainable and while neural net stuff is interesting there's a lot of shady uses.

#introductions #intro #reintroductions

Hey everyone, I am finally getting around to making an #introduction

I'm not too sure how best to talk about myself in this space. I identify as agender, demiromantic, asexual, and queer. I'm a writer, artist, and designer.

I'm also ultimately looking at contributing to the accessibility of other content creators, such as subtitling, and would like to find a channel or creator to regularly practice and help with.

But I'm also a spoony and currently in a bad headspace. Committments are hard.

:blobcatpeek: hello again

BOOKS & BONE is a librarians-and-necromancy fantasy with small town charm in a city of the dead.

It is currently up for funding on #kickstarter as I can't afford to publish it on my own. If you're able, I'd really appreciate your help!

It's a story about frantic research, the boundaries of magic, and the love of home, however strange.

It's mildly spooky and very warm. I hope you'll like it!

:blobcatpeek: ok thanks

#writing #fantasy

As inspiration for today I want to share this video made by some slam poets in Chicago who I admire. If there is a better video about writing, please share. @duck_errant @maer #writing #writingexchange

And see these young people's responses:

Hi everyone, I've just joined the instance. I'm Jane, and I'm looking forward to talking about writing and also reading your stories. There's some flash fiction on my blog, if you'd like to take a look. gives me ideas, most of them weird. 😂 That's enough for now. *waves*
