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.
"There is this false notion that goth—or any subculture that leans towards whimsey or theatrics—is a ‘white people’ thing so disavowing that myth is important to me."

Marian‘s chosen pronoun is ‚they’. Episode 1 features them extensively, but I never had to use ‚themself‘ or ‚themselves‘. Now I keep switching back an forth in this paragraph:
„Easier decided than done. Marian urge themself to enjoy the opportunity. A nice challenge, perfect way to close the day.“
How would you decide? Why? Thanks!
Being that kind of weird person, I did of course do a bit of #marching with my #union today. I also attended part of the #rally. No sign of #noborders momentum building up. Shame, sucks. Went home to revert to #writing my kind of #scifi, as in editing and publishing this month‘s short story.

Our other new article is a new #worldbuilding piece from @JubalBarca, entitled "Ritual and re-use: writing places that feel alive" .

Anyone have a concrete example of "fear of dam burst" going up as we approach the dam then plummeting to zero for the closest people? Maybe a link to a survey, or even just a report about one specific place this was observed?

April‘s short story is tiny. With my day job still in mad mode, my brain had to come up with an excuse to go very short. The #coolreaders video contest now scheduled to happen on #naija #twitter later this year does this trick: 3 min videos = 500 words, instead of the my words-to-go standard of 1-2k. Nice way to recycle the overtime cash, too.
