PSA, art, talking to myself but maybe you need to hear it too? 

Art doesn't need to be good. Or unique. Or special. It's ok to do art that has been done before. Your art, whatever medium, doesn't need to earn its right to exist. It is an expression of your breath and life and like you, its right to exist cannot be taken away.

I got a lovely reminder today that projects I worked on in the past may seem like ancient memories to me, but will be new discoveries for people when they find them later.

As a person who's most familiar with making live performances, asynchronous creativity at times still feels like a magical new idea.

Keep making stuff.
Keep sharing stuff.

I was out walking, lost in thought, and paid little attention to where I was going. Imagine my surprise when I found myself in the Library of Unwritten Books.
I wasn't allowed to read any of my own unwritten books, but I read one of yours.
It was really good. You should write it.

its a little hard rn. idk. making art feels painful and unsatisfying ltely. writing is a struggle. i am very scared to go back into a full art/writers block like i was in a few years ago.
i try to take it slow and be patient and try out new stuff.
but its hard. its painful. im tired.

i just wanna make stuff and enjoy it.

I drew this comic a while back, and with the start of another pride month with another slew of terrifying things going on, here is my comic about Feeling Safe and lashing out against the phrase "you don't have to make your sexuality your whole personality"

CW for describing a memory of people being transphobic, but I think it's worth not blurring the entire comic for it

Hey there, does anyone have a good source for a good randomizer or list for prompts? I wanna experiment a bit with something that isn't related to any other poject, but am missing ideas,
anyone who can help?

its almost half past ten and i have already bought some groceries and sent off a letter look at me being a proper adul zzzZZZ

One of the things I miss about the Google plus interface was how easy it was to search for/find & create small communities of interest.

I wish there was a way to do that more simply in the fediverse.

Would love to find more #writers, especially #specfic (#sciencefiction & #fantasy) writers.

There are some hashtags that can help us find one another - #amwriting & #amwritingscifi for example, but I don't thing many folks use them.

So, where are my spec fic writers at???

(Boosts welcome!)

i often feel like its not really worth talking about my current project, as it is a) a fanfiction and i feel often it isnt as valid to talk about the process of that
and b) the kind of fic where you put an oc into the mix of the source content.
i feel these kind of fics are generally the least popular, and (if true) i get why.
I still have fun and can share with my close friends and thats already alot for me, but i cant help wanting to share MORE of it, especially the process

i but i have no clue how to handle the next chapter so i just writer other scenes for other chapters until my brain allows me to figure that one out.

I am so tired. luckily its only a bad cough + headache and a sruffy nose nothing worse.
yesterday i had a fever but today it already calmed down again.

i didnt remember how much it sucked to be sick. But im glad its just as bad as a cold for me

which is usually bad enough 😬

My #pride collection is out and available on both my website and my Etsy! These 3 inch buttons cover 13 different pride flags as subtle sunset cloudscapes. I made these with people who can't celebrate pride as openly as they would like to.

I have, as of today, #pride #polyamory #aromantic #pansexual #asexual #intersex #genderqueer #transgender #bisexual #demisexual #genderfluid #nonbinary #lesbian

Links to buy are in my bio!

im always like "i overcame my writersblock!" which is true, but also i wrote german before, and have not since, so i feel like i just "tricked" my way around the writers block

wonder if i can do it someday again (and if i do, will the cringe will catch me again)

A note made in Reykjavík a long time ago: "There's a difference between being interested and being interesting. When you live around Nature that could snuff you out in a moment, is demonstrably visually constantly larger than you, being more interested rather than trying to be more interesting is probably an excellent survival response."

Came across the expression "come visit and ring with your elbow" on A Way With Words, a show about and how we use it. It means when you come round, don't come empty handed!
