The silly infomercial I needed today: 😜 Outrage Slots! Available for an (un)limited time.

I’m poking my head back into Mastodon after a few years. Curious to see who is online. 🙂

Deep cleaned the condo today. Scrub scrub scrub. Ready for a late lunch and some pen shopping. 🙂

This is your monthly reminder to back up your computer. 😊

I lost my journal-writing pen, and I need a new one. Any favorites, pen aficionados? I like something flowy but not smudgy.

Good morning/afternoon, Writers. What are you working on today? 😁

Happy Saturday everyone! Enjoying the calm after the holiday?

I am cat-deprived and visiting a friend who has a cat. PLAY IT COOL, I tell myself. DON'T LET THE CAT KNOW YOU'RE DESPERATE. 🐱

Had an early wakeup today, and I’m discovering it’s hard to be creative on 6 hours sleep. 😴

I’m slowly rebuilding a set of hard bound classics I had as a kid. They’re illustrated! 📚

You can toot if you want to. You can leave your tweeps behind.

Lesson of the day: Nothing like working on financial statements all day to remind me why I love writing fiction. Columns of numbers so rarely solve crimes, fall in love, or battle an ancient evil.

"Let's play a game, to help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-7 things that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same."

Enjoyed my first visit to! Thanks, everyone. Gonna log off now and get some writing done. 😎

I'm seeing lots of confusion around the federation about instances. So I'm gonna try to sum it up. 

With email, we use one domain, but we can still communicate with people on other domains-- gmail users can talk to hotmail users. We can have multiple accounts too.

Instances work a little like that--but they also have a "local timeline" to show you what's happening on your instance, which gives each instance its own community.

Hello everyone. I'm a writer from Seattle, I've written two amateur sleuth mysteries and my third is coming along nicely. I'm looking forward to hearing about your lives and work!

I love Twitter for the jokes and pop culture and creative community, but I dislike the negativity and ganging-up that happens there.

Consider me "in" for this friendlier and wackier social media experiment. 😊 Hello!
