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!

Sorry I’ve been quiet! Still alive. Just my phone app for mastodon keeps crashing and I haven’t bothered to fix it. Busy!

I will eventually.

fun fact: grasshoppers evolved in the triassic period, while grass evolved in the cretaceous period - meaning that grasshoppers are about 120 million years older than grass

"How full does the moon have to be?"
"What?"
"The moon looked full last night, but you didn't turn into a wolf."
"The moon will be full tonight, just before seven."
"It's that precise?"
"Yes, it's only fully full for a few minutes."
"So it's manageable?"
"My condition? Yeah."

Sometimes I wish I had enough power to start a conspiracy that they* want global warming to happen because the lizard overlords are tired of the snow and hate Christmas.

Just posting that I am still alive, just very busy!

Stay well and safe, everyone.

@Teryl_Pacieco I've been trying to find a microfiction story posted somewhere a while back about a machine that can make any fruit if you put in the right number code, and the person who had it make impossible fruits by trying out codes that weren't on the list. Despite my best efforts, I haven't been able to find it, and I'm stuck asking around. You're on the list for who could have written it. Does this sound familiar to you?

i'm searching for an app that will help me stop drinking soda? available on android.

gamification works pretty well on me where nothing else does, so something that gamifies the quitting.

i find only stuff aimed at stopping alcohol or tobacco - which, i understand, but y'know i have a lot of difficulties with soda anyway.

so a gamification app for quitting a bad habit where you can select that the bad habit is soda, or just not specify the habit, available on android ? anyone has an idea ?

i can pay a reasonable one-time fee if the app is good, but i'm not paying a weekly / monthly / yearly subscription.

thanks ewe (you can boost this)

Enough terrible headlines. Here is a fish whose scientific name is Boops boops

hey! do you draw dragons? do you want money? would you be willing to draw a dragon for me in exchange for money? if these apply to you (and you have PayPal, yes it's evil but it's the only way I have to get people money via the intertubes) DM me and we'll work something out! 💚

I feel like the longer I spend on something, the harder it is to let go, but I think its finally time to put this one out in the world.

"and has been a legal title in the UK since 2011" - there's no such thing as a legal title in the UK, there's no central authority or record of "official" titles, and anyone can change their title to anything anytime without having to notify anyone.

The title "Mx" has been in use since the 1970s

#Trans people, how do you feel about Adele saying "I love being a woman"?

Full quote: "I understand why [this award is now gender-neutral] but I really love being a woman and being a female artist. I do. I’m really proud of us, I really, really am.”

Im looking for a #blind person who would be willing check whether this (libre) game works for them and would tell me what needs fixing.
(it’s just two scenes — less than 10 minutes to test)

If you’re blind and would like to help, I’d love to get your comments on dryads-wake.1w6.org/ !

(I want to make this work well for blind people, but I don’t know the problems that come up in real usage — I only know what the orca screenreader tells me)

Please boost, so this reaches the right people!

Hello folks, I want to learn more about Chinese mythology and am looking for recommendations (please no podcasts, but everything else media-wise is ok) to get into the topic. I know that there's no single China, but several cultural regions, and I know that the legend/tale of the three kingdoms is a big thing, but I only know the beginning of it (though Total War, lol). Feel free to drop your media recommendations in English or German, thanks!
