A Great Way to Talk to Yourself in Public™

Just realized I can add custom CSS through the Mastodon admin UI, so I've made a few visual changes to :

- Wider columns
- Bigger tooting area by default
- Slightly bigger line height for text

What do you think? What other changes would you like to see?

Just released Make Readable Again v1.5.2, which fixes the "Disable Highlight Menu" setting that recently stopped working.

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.

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 :)

Hello, I don't write often but going on holiday tomorrow. I like comedy and sci-fi and want to write a TV series but haven't figured out the story yet.

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.

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.
