@meg I don't have any such experience, but to play devil's advocate:

1. Most Kindle users are likely not tech savvy and may appreciate the ability to download books straight from Kindle.

2. Kindle owners already have an Amazon account and don't have to set up payment/create an account for your book.

3. I'm curious how many readers pay attention to Kindle recommendations. Something to consider/research

I've listened to Dracula on Audible for 10.5 hours. I have 5 hours left.

The first part of the novel when Jonathan Harker visits Dracula's castle was awesome. The rest of the story has dragged on and sucked.

Do I:

We're finally taking care of all the non-technical work needed on Write.as, like better help documentation and minor annoying bugs / missing pieces.

For example, we're putting all our help on (fittingly) a Write.as blog, howto.write.as, and then linking to that site from various places in the application. (Previously, we might've linked to an old Help page from 2015 or guides.write.as.)

Hopefully this makes everything much easier to use!

5 Tenets of a Negative Self-Help

In which Mark Manson pretty much summarizes my life philosophies, especially #4 (you don't deserve happiness)


@fribbledom I had a small wave (maybe actually only a pair) of followers with that same profile pic. Must be a big family

"Faith" by The Cure is the perfect Spooky Season tune, as it has wrecked my day on so many occasions. That hopeless bass, the desperate vocals and the unconvincing closure--"I went away alone with nothing left but faith"...

Consider me wrecked.


My next nominee for Spooky Season Movie Marathon shall be Vampire Hunter D. I can't claim to be a true fan of anime, but D has always been one of my favorite characters.

Reading List (tooting this so I have some form of accountability) 

I'm hung up on the explicit desire on her part to rawdog.

@steven_ovadia I haven't seen that one, but everyone keeps saying it. I'll have to put it on my list.

One day I will accept that I keep coming back to Fedora and GNOME because we were meant to be, we three. Hopefully today is that day.

I was considering it but will probably pass. I would like to maintain regular writing before jumping into NaNoWriMo.

I was not feeling Joker when the first teaser trailer dropped. But I loved it. It was obviously inspired by Taxi Driver which was fitting since it also featured DeNiro.

I recently read No Plot? No Problem! by Chris Baty, the creator of NaNoWriMo. He says you're right where you need to be. :)

The point is to vomit something out so that you can edit it later. Don't get lost in the planning and don't expect perfection.


Most of the movies I've requested from the library for my Spooky Season Movie Marathon are currently checked out. Spooky Season is in the air.

Facebook: I'm in a promising local band.

Twitter: I'm developing an idea for a startup.

Instagram: I'm building an audience to become an influencer.

Mastodon: I use Linux distros you've never even heard of.

I've always thought sympathy to mean that you understand that someone would feel bad but don't have personal experience to go along with it. And I've thought empathy to mean that you relate on a deeper level because you do have experience with similar situations.

Forgive me if I'm asking the same question twice. Fedilab shows that I responded only by tagging you but doesn't show any additional text.

Can you elaborate on what exactly you disagree with?
