Just realized I can add custom CSS through the Mastodon admin UI, so I've made a few visual changes to #WritingExchange:
- 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 #Medium Readable Again v1.5.2, which fixes the "Disable Highlight Menu" setting that recently stopped working.

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
I'm Lottie. I write things. poems mainly. I look forward to maybe sharing some things with you, and getting to know you all. #introductions
I'm new to mastodon. I came here to share my poems with you beautiful people. I write micropoems almost every day! So let's trade follows. I want to meet you!
Hello, #introductions 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.
#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.
I'll officially be at #AWP19 in Portland, Oregon next March! If you're going, I'd love to chat in real life. More info about where our booth will be and everything else coming soon.
