We're working to build a suite of tiny, focused tools that all work together, and share the same simplicity and privacy-awareness of Write.as. This little platform is just the start.

Now you can along with each of them right here in the fediverse:

@readwriteas - stories from Write.as
@snap_as - photo and album hosting
@htmlhouse - HTML hosting

Future:
@draft_as - collaboration on text
@jot_as - private, encrypted notes

thanks to the magic of @write_as my current :nanowrimo: #NaNoWriMo project is now available as a rough and ready e-book, if you like reading on e-ink readers or dedicated reader software instead of on the web.

And honestly, who could blame you?

Anyway, free epub downloads here:

Hey, #WriteFreely #writeas users! 👋 Quite a lot of you here, almost 300 nodes. Can you please explain your use cases of the software? Why is it better than posting thoughts in any long-format Fediverse network? AFAIK, WriteFreely has no notifications in web interface. It doesn't show followers (except the count). It shows no comments under posts inside the interface. Do authors answer to comments from other apps? Don't you miss comments from your readers? Or is it supposed to be a one-way train?

It's ! Like every year, that means everyone can use the "Novel" blog format all month long on Write.as, even as a Free user, and get one additional blog for your novel at no extra cost.

We're finally leaving the "alpha" development stage! As part of this, we'll need to move everyone to our new infrastructure.

Previously, we mentioned this could involve some downtime. Instead, your photos and galleries will become read-only this coming Monday (Oct. 26), and then you'll simply log in and start the migration yourself.
