Considering diving back into writing . Wild to think it's been over two years since I published my book of childhood poems:

While looking through old notebooks, I happened across a poem I’d forgotten I had written. Scribbled behind a page of song lyrics in New York, 2017. (

Finally sat down and read Anne Lamott’s “Bird By Bird,” and really enjoyed it.

I remember one of the things that motivated me to look into the state of decentralized social media (and ultimately begin working on Mastodon) in 2016 were talks that a controversial billionaire might buy Twitter.

Last week, I finished putting my first serialized together for a story about my cat as a private detective (and me as her assistant). I thought I would share the contents of Case 01 Part 01 digitally as well, for those interested:

Hello world! Been away for a while (life has been wild, but I'm back. I hope you all have been well!

Now I'd like to give people the option to financially support without having to pay for a subscription. So today I'm launching an Open Collective page for anyone who would like to support the project.

I've been moving my blog over to, including this post about the collection I put out last year. Hoping to write more this month.

Hello, everyone! 🙂
My name is Spence. I jumped back into writing after finally publishing a collection of childhood poetry last year and haven't looked back. Since then, I've been looking for communities of kind, awesome people to chat and share ideas with. I was happy to discover this one. Very nice to meet you all!
