New story "Chaos In The Eye Of God " posted on SFF Super Shorts.
Intro: For 33 years I was a professional journalist: reporter>editor>managing editor. I founded & ran, for 12 years, a nonprofit dedicated to helping young people write: https://youngwritersproject.org.
Now I focus on my own projects: a novel that has occupied my mind for 18 years; a journalism project: words, sound, images centered on a courageous opioid addict.
I provide editing support to several professionals & young people. I hope to give and receive feedback with you. https:geoffreygevalt.com
Yet another reason to be so happy with Plume blogging software!
LYNX is a text based command line web browser - ideal for folks with older hardware and less bandwidth.
THIS is what one of my blog posts looks like in LYNX. Granted I don't use a lot of fancy markup so that helps, but it's so clean and readable. AND even using a Pi Zero W as a client, it loads in the time it takes me to blink so well done Plume & well done Sunbeam Technowizards!!!! 🧙♀️

@switchingsocial Could you recommend where to look for bands that release their music under CC licences? It would probably mean their songs could be shared on Funkwhale without any copyright violation (giving the proper credits).
Have been so caught up with development that I forgot to mention some of the improvements and fixes recently deployed on Write.as:
- Federation with #Pleroma works now 🎉
- Fixed RSS feeds for "Novel" formatted blogs
- Fixed em dashes and some other glyphs in the default font, Lora
- Moving an anonymous post to a federation-enabled blog now federates that post
- The API now accepts a `created` value when publishing a post -- great for maintaining post dates while importing posts
