Sometimes you want to take a picture, capture how the morning light looks filtering through the trees; your cooled skin; the sound of birds.
But you can never smell the air in that photo. You can't look around to see the rest of the world from that spot you stood, capturing a split second of light.
The only way to remember it is to sit for a while; feel it as deeply as you can; accept that it'll never be as good as it is right now.
And I've just sent out my first Patrons-only post on Patreon! This one talks about a potential name for the open source version of #writeas, and progress on that so far.
Going forward, I'll post more behind the scenes, development-oriented things for $5+ patrons over there.
Eight months ago I left my job to work on @write_as full-time. It wasn't an easy decision to make, but it's meant that ever since, I get to wake up every day and do work that I truly love.
If you'd like to support what I'm doing, including fediverse projects like @read_as and our Writing.Exchange instance, here are a few ways you can help:
#introductions Greetings! Most of my writing nowadays comes in the form of fanfiction/roleplay both in/out of the game (my RP partner and I utilize discord to RP). I’d like to expand and have people read some of what we write, if I am brave and if there is interest :)
Hi. I’m Liz. I am a writer and publisher. Very interested in democratic, non-violent activism, Internet communties and collaboration and Catalan independentism. Yeah and I sew and knit and garden. Based in Barcelona but with half a foot in Massachusetts. #introductions
#introduction It feels weird to be typing this. Social media never was my thing, but I feel like it could be helpful. I've written since I was in elementary, and I've never looked back. I'm much better than I was back then but I still have a long way to go. I hope I can become active on here and find people to help me improve and maybe even help others to do the same if I get the chance.
I already started on the macOS app (written in #Swift), but I need help polishing the UI and packaging it up. For the Windows app, I'm not sure where to start. So I'm looking for #developers that can help with either!
If you're interested, feel free to send me a message. Otherwise please pass it along to anyone you know!
Have you ever just stopped and appreciated how you type? That at some point, the fluency of movement becomes so deep in your instincts the words don't come through your hands, or even really your conscious actions.
They pour like water spilling over the lip of a cup and you alter the universe to accommodate it through arcane gestures that can exist in that way and no other way.
Returning to paper.

Hello has anyone tried publishing in Amazon Direct Kindle Publishing? If so what did you think of it? Thank you so much in advance :)
I'm just a visitor here.
I didn't take pictures at the moments I felt the most -- I could only capture a shadow or an interesting corner of a room, anyway. things that would only make sense to me.
Those real moments included the first day in Madrid among the crowds and music and old streets; the last night in Sevilla, getting lost down narrow corridors and sitting on the bank of the Guadalquivir, meeting a group of strangers and trading languages.
But for the visually appealing moments between:
nature, words, dogs, software, privacy, music, and the moment.
