NaNoWriMo, NaNoNosk update #1 

Apparently, Blizzard have announced Diablo 4, and I haven't been this hyped in a long while. :blobcheer:

Yes, I am progressive.

Progressively listening to heavyer and heavyer metal as I age.

Be'lakor - Of Breath And Bone (album)

[It's melodic death metal, I've just discovered them, and the music gives me the same feelings as when Amon Amarth was new to me :blobheart: :cubone: :gengar: ]

does anybody use mixxx and arch/manjaro and know how to fix the whole "can't connect to anything" issue?

please boost this post so i can find help, it's a halloween vantaradio emergency

Hey all, it's the last day to get the ebook of BOOKS & BONE for $0.99!

It's spooky and fun and I'd really love for more people to read it.

It's on sale everywhere but Amazon, but you can get the Kindle version from :)

You can also try the first three chapters for free!

Feeling #1: The slight pull towards the train when a freight train enters a train station at high speed.

Feeling #2: Making the loud rumble of the freight train go away and replace it with a thin whoosh sound, just by clicking a button on the side of my head.

Imagine an ActivityPub server that gave all it's participants a vote to decide whether to federate with a new server, whenever a new server tried to interact in any way.

Bonus points: forcing follows from that server into pending until the federation permission is voted on.

Bonus points: opting out of such votes, to avoid having to consider new servers and trust the rest of the community.

Be very very careful how you talk about the impending humanitarian crises caused by climate change

Never allow your arguments to even tacitly support the belief that refugees are bad for the countries that take them in; focus on how bad it is for the refugees themselves to be uprooted

For Halloween may I suggest obtaining and reading BOOKS AND BONE, by Victoria Corva @vicorva

I have not read it but several people I know read it and they have all loved it.


Read chapters 1-3:


push notifications were invented by someone who has never experienced anxiety

Florence preparing for Crowdfunding 

And MONSTROUSNESS BEING CUTE. Monsters being charming. The horrible being made familiar, human, worthy of love.

I should probably stop going on about this as I'm sure you get the idea but I am just *so so taken* by this.

I want it to be an official subgenre.

I want to have a bookcase full of books like this.

:blobcheer: *bouncing with actual excitement*

I'm now obsessed with @zatnosk 's suggestion of sweetdark.

This is the aesthetic sibling and thematic reversal of grimdark.

This is what I write.

I love it so much!

Did you know? (CW: Fictional Necromancers) 

@tom borders are a scam invented by the border industry to sell more borders

I hate mobile game tutorials that insist on telling me exactly which button to click for twenty minutes before I can play the game.

I want to explore and learn, godsdammit!

I made a map!

Based on the prep I did earlier today, and using a pretty nice tool called Inkarnate ( ).

Feedback is more than welcome. This is meant as a sketch to help me plot travel and political intrigue in the world.

I repeat: Feedback is very welcome. I'm mostly fishing for layout / placement of stuff, and whether there's any geopolitical stuff I might have missed.
