I really should do my writing incoming post for this year.

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!

Thanks so much to everyone who has backed so far.

I should be writing but I don't want to kill off this character. :(

Yeah, didn't write this lunch break. Ended up cuddling with spouse and watching Ghosted instead.

It's #ThankfulThursday and I'm thankful for:

+ there being plenty of fiction to read: Metric Oodles of fic from @aldersprig, a new chapter of Nai from @rix_scaedu, and @Shutsumon has restarted Tales of the First.
+ @InspectorCaracal for running this instance and working to make it ever better.
+ @fluffy for spotting where I'd gone astray with a flask app, she's got some nifty comics and music too.
+ Caffeine for helping me stay conscious
+ wireless earphones, niftier than LED watches.

“So you’re really going through with the operation?”
“Yep!”
“But, what about your humanity? Aren’t you worried about losing yourself when you’re mechanical?”
“When did I ever give the impression that I wanted to be human?”

I stumbled on someone who blocked me and I've just spent the last four hours hating myself for doing whatever I did to cause it. I assume I said something stupid.

Depression sucks.

So is social awkwardness.

It's on Facebook, but last year I was on a little video interview from Alban Lakes books, a local publisher I helped for quite a few years.

I just realized: One thing I'm missing from the Fediverse are event calendars.
I'm currently in a group of people planning a climate protest, and we're using Facebook to post events there for people to subscribe to.
I'm not aware of any federated social network / tool where I could post a calendar event and people could subscribe to it.
That would be a really useful feature to get more people off Facebook.

I'm thinking about doing a poem a day of for April. Might be fun since I haven't done much these days.

One drawback of not being able to go to my writing group is that I can't get feedback on my projects. Like these chapters for Raging Alone I'm working on, I don't know if they are rough or over the top.

I just realized that next week is the climax chapter of Flight of the Scions. An epic battle of engineering verses a giant psychic toad. Who will win?What is it with the epic anime attacks that require power ups?

... why don't I have the next novel done?

I think the universe is telling me to work on spell-check issues next sprint. 😀

Hrm, is there an embeddable comment system that uses fedration/#ActivityPub instead of Disqus/Isso/Embedded ? I'm mainly looking for static sites.

If you're a computer programmer and you've heard of the Dat protocol but looked at the docs and still scratched your head (I was there myself a few months back), there's a new guide that explains in very clear, very detailed language what Dat is and how it works.

Just to be clear, I do not recommend it for non-programmers as that is not the intended audience but I *highly* recommend it for programmers:
