@matt My parents owned pubs while I was growing up and I distinctly recall watching car lights paint across my bedroom ceiling as they drove through the gaps in the curtains at night. The smooth dance they made across the room was always a source of wonder, even though I was old enough to know what and why they were.

Hi all,
here is my quick .
My name is Massimo, I am from Italy and a year ago I had a weird dream about a boy and a strange phenomena.
That image grew in my head and I started writing some short stories (in Italian). I decided to publish them on a personal blog/site – crooked.ink. That wasn't enough: bored because of the lockdown, I decided to translate one in English and –a few weeks later– to write another one directly in English.

TL;DR: I think I enjoy writing.

Small moments awake noticing the pretty, shifting light.

This is my first step into the . I'm looking forward to learning more about it and meeting new people.

I'm a writer by trade who works for a University as their Web Content Officer.

I run a website called the Worldbuilding School which is all about building imaginary worlds. And I'm writing a collection of Cyberpunk flash fiction with a Retrowave style.

Hello, all! You may call me Tutu. 

I just joined `don, and I'm so very excited to be here! I lurked for a day over on my other account to learn how it works, and I'm excited to share my stuff and get some critiques and improve my poetics, story-telling, prose, and maybe even my song-writing if I feel vulnerable enough!

Check out my bio + links for all the things. & If anyone would like to talk poetry, phenomenology, spirituality or music, don't hesitate to reach out, future-friends! 🤲

I will be starting the upgrade for all Mastodon servers on Masto.host to v3.2.1

There should be less than 30 seconds of downtime during the process.

You can see the changelog here: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Any issues or questions please let me know.

Hey everyone! I'm new to mastodon and the writing.exchange. I'm a software developer trying to get into creative writing.

I'm hoping to do this year 🤔, but I don't think I've written anything over 10,000 words before...

Hello, everyone. I'm new to Mastodon and the Fediverse in general. I may ask questions that reveal my naivete.

Been working with SwifUI all summer to build this. It’s getting close! 😬😃🥳

Not to mention all the things that enables that you simply can't do on other social silos.

Only got to catch the end of Evan Prodromou's Q&A session, but I really appreciated the point he made about how we might grow the fediverse by only having certain interactions here (instead of cross-posting to birdsite, for example).

Matt boosted

These past few months have slipped away from me; I haven't been around / participating in the fediverse as much as I'd have liked to.

Looking forward to watching everyone's @apconf talks, though!

This week I'm re-architecting and moving @snap_as from a separate application into our single @write_as application. Here are a few thoughts along the way.
