I'm Martyn. (I swear I didn't add the "y" myself.) I'm a writer living in Melbourne, Australia.

Right now I'm working on a novel as part of a PhD on superhero stories; I'm also a screenwriter with a couple of projects in development in the US. I like all forms of stories, but comic books have always been my true love.

You can read some of my work at martynpedler.com, if you like. There's flash fiction if you're time-poor too!

My name's Brandon. I'm currently an student (or at least I will be for another week, when I graduate), and I hope to become a full-fledged soon. I was diagnosed with autism two years ago, and as I try to move into a library career, I hope to advocate for and neurodiverse voices within the profession.

Outside of LIS, I'm a human to an incredibly spoiled Japanese Chin, as well as a Trekkie and a Whovian. I also have a lot of other special interests.

Hi everyone, I'm new to Mastodon, and I write fantasy fiction (adult and YA).

I'm querying agents for my first novel (epic fantasy) while writing my second (gender-flipped Three Musketeers-meets-Treasure Island with a dark academia vibe) in my spare time.

I love my day job as an academic (PhD in medieval lit), but here I'll be be posting about fiction writing, the query/rejection (!) process, and things that I'm reading and watching.

I look forward to meeting you!

Once we figure that out, we'll also support custom blog avatars in the fediverse (first on @write_as, since it has photo support).

Finally got @writefreely blog updates working in the !

Before, changing your blog title and description wouldn't update on other instances. Works with Mastodon, but it seems to break (and I haven't tested with other platforms). So I filed an issue: git.pleroma.social/pleroma/ple

time I guess. Hi, I'm Matt! Scientist by day and / / by night. I write mostly fantasy with some horror and sci fi, and my proudest writing achievement to date is currently that time a beta reader said my draft read like a collaboration between Terry Pratchett and Clive Barker.

Hoping to make some writer friends to share our WIP highs and lows.

Hi, I already have an account on mastodon.online, but I've seen this server and though I'd make an account here too. So this is my .

Writing is mostly a hobby for me. I work as a programmer, and I tinker on an open source app for writers in my spare time, when I'm not writing on my novel projects.

I read mostly sci-fi and fantasy, and my writing is also sci-fi. I suppose it doesn't hurt that I studied physics in university 🙂

Hi all! For , I'm currently a freelance writer and editor (and recovering cybersecurity writer) with a love of writing sci-fi and fantasy in my free time. I'm working through hopefully my last major revision for my first novel, while also doing some micro and flash fiction on the side which I'm trying to get in the habit of posting on Medium instead of just letting it molder unseen.

This is also my first time using Mastodon, so exciting times all round.

Alright, intro post take two: I'm Lauren, and I write stuff. Mostly horror and supernatural fare, but fantasy's something I enjoy too.

I enjoy monsters, especially vampires of the non-sparkly variety. Also I'm likely to start talking about my misadventures in TTRPGs at some point, because that's always fun.
