I'm Naga. A statistical consultant by training and trade, but more here for general social interaction, especially geeky, sometimes sexy/kinky, and occasionally left-wing political. Oh, and new-dad stuff. Dragonlet is my toddler, Jalan is my wife.

"We’re looking for stories about people who are planting the seeds for a totally different future, who are actively pushing for changes in their communities, who are imagining who they would be in another time and place, if they didn’t have to define themselves against stereotypes, systematic injustice and a dominant culture that excludes and harms them. Show us these visions."

"We are, as always, especially interested in submissions from trans women and people of color."

These are paid projects, circa $50-300.

I don't do color work often. This was done as a farewell pinup when I ended my run on the webtoons series 'Dents' #mastoart #art #dents #webtoons #comics #pinup

Samantha Shannon's The Priory of the Orange Tree is on sale in the US Kindle store, and likely other ebook vendors, for US$1.99.

No, no, young (and probably male) writer, those women are not robbing you of your success.

If you are not successful, it's because you're either not a good enough writer, or because you haven't written enough. Probably both.

It's not enough to be a better writer than Robert A Heinlein. Novels improve every year. You must become a better writer than N K Jemisin.

This has been a public service announcement from the Successful Professional Male Writers Association. #writing

We're planning to have a meeting to kick off the new year.

Take stock of where we are, what we need to do, and who wants to do it with us.

This means that even if you haven't contributed before, but would like to and think you can this coming spring, you're very welcome to join us!

We're checking suitable times with Doodle:

If the purge was real, I would spend the whole 24 hours planting trees in places I am not normally allowed to.

When I was a kid we used to hunt around for scorpions at night with a UV lamp. (UV makes scorpions floresce.) We didn't do anything to them, just looked at them for a while and moved on. Anyway I figure that's probably the arachnid equivalent to a UFO encounter.

In-laws got a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse playset for his birthday and he's beside himself :)

Between us and grandparents, he also ended up with two nearly-identical plush Mickeys and one Minnie.

Does anyone have any idea what it would cost me (as a person) to pay someone to on a bi-weekly or monthly basis review my private notebook and public social media posts to identify items worth saving on my personal website; and turn it the decent stuff into a "second-draft" with editorial commentary?

Assuming it's somewhere between 4~8 hours/mo of work?

the thing about the internet is one moment you're like "heh, i just remembered Ralph the motorcycle mouse," so you google the beloved children's books from your youth.

and then exactly twenty-two seconds later you are somehow on the Etsy page of an amateur taxidermist who dresses stuffed mice as Pope Francis and sells them for $100 a pop, and squinting at the photos trying to evaluate if that's a rip-off or a fair price for the level of artistry.

because internet.

It's 's bedtime.
