Little self promotion here.

If you want to know when I get published with my YA sci-fi about superheroes or my adult fantasy about Wheel of Time trope subversion, here is my newsletter.

I won't be updating this until I'm published, so no worries about spam!

I'm the dystopian sorting hat. Boost this and I'll assign you a Hive Mind.

‪Woot!! I’ve gotten through first editing of Chapter 3 of this . Onto chapter 4 and closing these annoying loopholes I’ve been avoiding.‬

‪Few more chapter to edit and then I will be able to get back to actual writing.

I learned something pretty cool today. You ever heard a song on a YouTube video that was electronic music? It might have been Monstercat. Monstercat has terms where YouTubers who make money via advertisement must pay them $5 a month in order to use them in monetized videos, but unmonetized videos can use them for free. However, their page only lists certain platforms they have deals for like YouTube and Twitch.

Due to how PeerTube is decentralized and doesn't do ad revenue, I was worried about whether or not I could use their songs in a video without risking an entire instance. So, I sent a support request, and they confirmed that it would be fine if people use their songs on PeerTube as long as the Monsercat, the artist, and the song all get proper credit!

So if you're looking to publish on PeerTube and need background music, Monstercat has your back.

so it's official, the government is trying to kill me. i cant survive off £93 a week, especially when we're being hit with such cold weather. i literally cannot work, i'm disabled, even standing for longer than 20 minutes can put me in severe pain. walking to the local store is difficult enough. at this rate i will have to decide between freezing or starving within the month.

if you have the ability, please consider donating so that i can keep the lights on.

Would 5 people be willing to back up my UK Parliament petition to provide a Nest-like scheme for installing sound insulation in the homes of low income people for free?

Been doing edits on this . Anyway. I just added like 1000 words of stuff to a single printed page.

I guess I’ve been kinda light on descriptions and things! Lol!

I've been naughty.

Got this new , I'm maybe at the 1/3rd mark finished.

However, I've started edits, adding world building, tightening the plot, closing holes, ext.

It's working.

If you feel editing before finishing will benefit you, do it. Ignore people who say you have to finish. You can always edit, you can always continue writing.

Just do what you need to get yourself writing.

boost this toot and ill choose a monster from the 1st edition monster manual that i think exemplifies you

Are there #biology people here? Maybe even #marinebiology people? I don't know where to ask but I might be working on a project to track #linedseahorse genetic diversity and it looks like #poplink is the software people use.

It's Windows only as far as I can tell and while I guess I could run it under WINE it would be cool if there were something that I could use on Linux. Or even better, an OSS project that I could maybe even contribute to?
