time I guess. Hi, I'm Matt! Scientist by day and / / by night. I write mostly fantasy with some horror and sci fi, and my proudest writing achievement to date is currently that time a beta reader said my draft read like a collaboration between Terry Pratchett and Clive Barker.

Hoping to make some writer friends to share our WIP highs and lows.

Hi, I already have an account on mastodon.online, but I've seen this server and though I'd make an account here too. So this is my .

Writing is mostly a hobby for me. I work as a programmer, and I tinker on an open source app for writers in my spare time, when I'm not writing on my novel projects.

I read mostly sci-fi and fantasy, and my writing is also sci-fi. I suppose it doesn't hurt that I studied physics in university 🙂

Hi all! For , I'm currently a freelance writer and editor (and recovering cybersecurity writer) with a love of writing sci-fi and fantasy in my free time. I'm working through hopefully my last major revision for my first novel, while also doing some micro and flash fiction on the side which I'm trying to get in the habit of posting on Medium instead of just letting it molder unseen.

This is also my first time using Mastodon, so exciting times all round.

Alright, intro post take two: I'm Lauren, and I write stuff. Mostly horror and supernatural fare, but fantasy's something I enjoy too.

I enjoy monsters, especially vampires of the non-sparkly variety. Also I'm likely to start talking about my misadventures in TTRPGs at some point, because that's always fun.

Joined this instance a few days ago but am just getting around to introducing myself. I've been luring around mastodon for a while but think this is the best fit for where I want to go. I'm a systems engineer (not a "computer systems engineer" 🙄 ) by education so I'm a generalist with wide interests. Started working on creative writing late in life.

Especially with the new interest in Mastodon and the influx of users, I feel like this is a good time to start something up like this.

For now, this would be purely on a volunteer basis, and it doesn't have to be just one person. But if we can get something going on a regular basis, I could eventually set aside a budget for this kind of work.

Would anyone be interested in leading some community programming here on ?

I'm thinking along the lines of starting bigger discussions, sharing prompts, holding events, amplifying the writers here, etc.

We could arrange it so that you're more central to the instance than I am. I'm still around, but don't have much personal time to do these extra activities. But I think it'd help make this a great place to hang out.

Hi! I'm Moth. I put words together sometimes. Lately I've been putting them together a lot, so I figured I might move my mentions of Runner KT3 over to here so people who don't wanna hear about it don't have to. (Also, I wanna talk about writing-specific stuff and have more writers see it.)
