Last year we made it to 10,000 participants on day 15.

This year, we're on track to reach 10,000 participants *today* - day 6.

If you know anyone whose #gender defies all the known laws of physics, maybe send them this link? 😁

I wish everybody knew about

when "hey you should read article! [link]" leads you to some hideous monstrosity of popups, autoplaying videos, and begging for/demanding money to read the damn text, you can instead:

1. copy the URL
2. paste it into the box
3. enjoy reading the actual text
4. (optional) say "not today, Satan"

sometimes it doesn't work, for some mysterious, unexplained reason. sometimes chokes on NYT articles, for example, but other times if I close the tab it's in, open an new tab, and try pasting the url again, it works, so.

anyway yeah! spread the news!

Life hack:

Academic papers are written by human beings who want their work to be read; and these people actually pay to be published in those journals. the journals do not pay them. And all journal licensing deals stipulate that the original author retains the right to share their own research.

So 99% of the time if you email the author of an academic paper and ask for the PDF, they will gladly and excitedly give it to you for free over email.

I have finished initial edits for SPARK OF DESIRE, a polyamorous romance! And that means it's time for first readers! DM with your email address if you'd like to be one. More details in pic/at link:

I finished my second round of edits on The Twilight Etherium on Friday.

I still don't want to write my current first draft WIP. (The Lord, His Monster, and Their Lady.)

So now I'm editing Spark of Desire instead. -_-
