Hey, just a newb amateur here. I've written quite a few poems over the past year. Also the past few months on Reddit I kept making r/WritingPrompts and wanting to make the prompts increasingly complex, so I'm gonna try making some short stories and putting them on the Fediverse's favorite write.as platform.
From what I've seen so far this instance seems very calm and peaceful. I look forward to discussions and inadvertently learning crazy news here.

If you're interested in testing those out, please let us know! We'd really appreciate the help!

Mastodon feature request 

Excited to go back to Japan for almost all of November. I'll be in Tokyo and all over, starting next week. If you're there and want to meet up, just let me know!

Linked is a #pherephone "Announce" activity from a writefreely post. It works on mastodon but not on pleroma. I cannot understand why this is. Can any helpful #pleroma or #ActivityPub experts give a hint?

boosts appreciated

Hello! I’m moving here from comicscamp.club, after my webcomic ended and I took up a much more text-centric writing blog.

I’ll get settled in here properly as soon as I’m not on the way home from getting groceries!

That afternoon the movie theater witnessed two romantic comedies.
One that was playing and one that was happening.
They both lasted 92'.

@darius Just mentioned you via ActivityPub on a WriteFreely post: matt.writefreely.dev/ap-mentio -- curious if you got it or not.

Excited to support #ActivityPub mentions in #WriteFreely! (In progress here: writefreely.org/pull/195)

So far it works great with #Pleroma, but #Mastodon doesn't support mentions in the Articles we send out (only Notes). So we've opened an issue to fix this: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

People have asked me if having local-only posting somehow discourages federated posting.

I finally did the actual queries on our instance database, and after about a year of having local-only as an option we are at almost exactly 50/50 local vs federated posts.

65% of our accounts have been active in the last month, which is on the high side of normal for an instance with 80 accounts.

We post about 2x more *federated* posts than other instances with ~40 active users.

When the muse arrives, you get to work.

Facebook: I'm in a promising local band.

Twitter: I'm developing an idea for a startup.

Instagram: I'm building an audience to become an influencer.

Mastodon: I use Linux distros you've never even heard of.

#Poem by me:

Taking care of you,
Lets you take care of them.

I feel your pain,
been there
was there, still there.

Taking care of you,
Lets you fly.

Please remember,
“Secure your own
Oxygen mask first”

Taking care of you,
Lets you soar.
