I decided to highlight overuses of "was" and "as" in my latest WIP. I'm sad because there were a lot of lines showing.
On the other hand, feedback from the writing group (after my hackles went down) is helpful. I'm just saddened of their immediate reaction. :( I make a point of not writing SA and two of the readers just assumed it was. I'll need to fix that.
Family, War, Success Show more
TFW you see your brother on television talking about making combat more lethal when you're a pacifist. I'm so glad he's succeeding just... not my thing.

I celebrated my nineteenth wedding anniversary this weekend in Madison. My spouse got a relatively nice picture of me, which is rare.
@dansup I say chrono because if you drive it based on like/replies, you encourage comments that appeal to the baser instincts, which frequently means inflammatory, rude, or destructive. You do get the intelligent ones, I just think it also drives other behaviors to get that top spot.
Ug, so many streaming services being announced by different networks. No way can I afford or want to afford a subscription to each. Everyone wants "more money".
Besides, most of my personal entertainment budget goes to Patreon, Kickstarter, and direct-to-folks subscriptions. The household? Less control.
Raging Alone 13: Grief
When Desòchu wakes up, his father is still missing and now he is fully responsible for his brother. Without anyone to comfort him or allow him to grieve, what could he do?
#SPFBO is coming soon and it doesn't look like the "random factors are going to align" so I won't make the fifth year (but hopefully the sixth).
Though, I suspect my changing of cover art styles is going to hamper my SPFBO entry when I can submit. :) But, I like how the style carries over across all the books which I couldn't do with the Chimípu cover (plus, you know, the book is from Rutejìmo's POV).
Social is the worst though, I have on my phone: Twitter, Tusky for Mastodon, Slack, Discord, Riot for Matrix, Bacon for Reddit, Teams, Signal. All because different communities want different things.
Slack and Discord are my least favorite though because they can't be customized for my flaws. At least Slack allows multiple accounts, Discord doesn't and I need that for work so I can't have a personal at the same time.
