Ahoy! Time for an . I'm a poet looking for other writers to consume, create and if I'm feeling brave, collaborate with. I'm excited to find a platform which is open and where we are not the product. Sharing my content from @wordsmith to this place seems like a step up from tumblr.

While I tromp around blindly like a Mastodon in a tearoom in the name of exploration, if anyone knows of a comfortable nook, let me know.

I am almost done with the first draft of my story . It is an epic/hard fantasy story about a girl who can steal other people's pain and shame, but cannot be free from that pain unless the person who gave her the pain dies.

I expect the story to total about 45k words. I will release it as when I am done.

Is anybody interested in being a ?

Also pretty clear they have no idea what Mastodon is, and that this is entirely automated. But yeah.

Yeah, $50 doesn't begin to cover what we'd lose by letting sponsored posts into the fediverse.

The answer, again, is no.

Hello all, new here, but not new to Mastodon. Have representation on a tech instance but I'm actually moving away from that direction and wanting to spend more time on my creative side. Came here looking for like-minded individuals.

Hey everyone!

I'm a hacker and wannabe writer interested in how technology is portrayed in culture and how that affects us.

Is the current popularity of dystopias really caused by a future shock? Can we promote positive futures by changing the narrative and making technology human-centered?

Two years ago I started a project to address that with stories: glider.ink/ . I realized I need to learn a lot about writing, and now I'm recovering from the initial burnout.

Nice feature for #NaNoWriMo, @write_as allows posts in chronological order for blog to display in novel format!

Any participants that would like advice / encouragement, feel free to reach out. I've done three, and they were instrumental to getting my novels jumpstarted.

Hey everyone, thanks for having me! I'm really excited to get involved with this community and help support my fellow indie authors! I mainly write fiction, but I also write poetry from time to time and I've also written one non-fiction book.
I self publish my work and do all of my own advertising. You can find me on most socials as Jweaverwrites.
When I'm not writing I'm either working my day job, playing video games, or getting 2nd place at Horror Trivia (every freaking time!)
