Thanks to the way Open Collective works, and calculates things, we're currently at estimated €99/month.
Scratch that! As I was preparing this post, we've crushed the €100 / month goal!
Thank you so much everyone, one time donations, monthly donations, yearly donations, donation matchers (which aren't even accounted for yet!)!
Had a great time hanging out in the Remark.as chat room today! Thanks to...
we're gathering in our virtual Café for the next hour, for a laid-back chat / hang out. come stop by!
Haven't done this in a while, but I'd like to get a sense of what's most important to everyone as we head into the summer. Are you happy with the platform? What planned feature development should we prioritize?
Please share your thoughts in our latest survey (and sorry for the Google form!): https://forms.gle/acgit3Z2QCTv2vjx9
I can see some functionality of Read.as merging with Remark.as in time. Whereas I think we need a line between creating something and sharing / talking about it (e.g. Write.as vs. Remark.as), I think the line between reading something and talking about it should be a little thinner. So things like following blogs and bookmarking posts will be at home on Remark.as (playing off the blog bookmarking feature just added).
I'm Martyn. (I swear I didn't add the "y" myself.) I'm a writer living in Melbourne, Australia.
Right now I'm working on a novel as part of a PhD on superhero stories; I'm also a screenwriter with a couple of projects in development in the US. I like all forms of stories, but comic books have always been my true love.
You can read some of my work at https://www.martynpedler.com, if you like. There's flash fiction if you're time-poor too!
Hi. I'm Sam.
I wrote this: https://blackandgoldlines.wordpress.com/2020/08/14/the-boy-in-the-picture/
My name's Brandon. I'm currently an #MLIS student (or at least I will be for another week, when I graduate), and I hope to become a full-fledged #librarian soon. I was diagnosed with autism two years ago, and as I try to move into a library career, I hope to advocate for #autistic and neurodiverse voices within the profession.
Outside of LIS, I'm a human to an incredibly spoiled Japanese Chin, as well as a Trekkie and a Whovian. I also have a lot of other special interests.
Hi everyone, I'm new to Mastodon, and I write fantasy fiction (adult and YA).
I'm querying agents for my first novel (epic fantasy) while writing my second (gender-flipped Three Musketeers-meets-Treasure Island with a dark academia vibe) in my spare time.
I love my day job as an academic (PhD in medieval lit), but here I'll be be posting about fiction writing, the query/rejection (!) process, and things that I'm reading and watching.
I look forward to meeting you!
Once we figure that out, we'll also support custom blog avatars in the fediverse (first on @write_as, since it has photo support).
Before, changing your blog title and description wouldn't update on other instances. Works with Mastodon, but it seems to break #Pleroma (and I haven't tested with other platforms). So I filed an issue: https://git.pleroma.social/pleroma/pleroma/-/issues/2875
#Introduction Hello everyone, I'm a biologist and in the next months I'll start a new path into planetary science, and my focus will be on astrobiology and human space exploration. I'm interested in #scicomm and #scifi, and I read heaps of Italian literature. I'll talk about #biology and #space, more or less. I've just started a blog here: https://noblogo.org/drawanowl where l'll write in English and Italian.
New to Mastodon, and this server too, so here's my #introduction!
Im currently working on:
🚀a #scifi epic
🌳ecopoems, and poems generally
Lovely to meet you all!
#introduction time I guess. Hi, I'm Matt! Scientist by day and #writer / #artist / #gamer 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.
