Variable reward: did the person that I want view my Snap / Insta story? What are they doing instead of checking their phone?
Probably having more fun doing something else...
with someone else.
...Jealousy creeps in....
Why aren't they looking at what I made?
Why aren't they "liking" me?
Why aren't they paying attention to me?
Me, me, me. Me!
I am a novice writer of sci-fi, fantasy and erotic fiction. Currently, I'm working to publish my first novel and break out of the web-fiction genre.
I wish you all good luck in your work!
This obligatory “hello world / testing 123 / is this thing on?” post reminds me of my first posts to other social sites over the years. Some of which sank without a trace, but some began conversations that changed my life.
I’m hoping for the best here. So, hi!
(Me, I’m a cis “he/him” guy. I look pretty young but I’m just backdated. I read & sometimes write spec fic, attempt to play post-rock or ambient, and try to be a good person to my family & friends.)

🔥 Trying to separate my writing and art from everything else.
💩 I'll try to keep my personal bullshit over on weirder dot earth.
❤️ Thanks for having me!
Hello again, Mastodon! I've been taking a bit of a social media break for a while, but I'd like to get back into it (to help keep me motivated and also keep track of others' creative output) – and nothing shames you into getting back into it like an awkward "hi I'm back" post. Hope to be posting a bit more around here!
Some thoughts on the #fediverse. Not going to become inactive, but this dialogue runs through my head whenever I do surf or toot on here.
This is new & exciting. I'm looking forward to meeting lots of positive tooters 😁
I've been an indie author - #histfic - for 6 years & learn something every day. Admittedly, I forget loads of stuff too 🤪
nature, words, dogs, software, privacy, music, and the moment.
