What would you like to see in a book about and ?

I've got my basic outline in place, but god knows I've missed important stuff before.

PMs welcome for privacy.

Managed to get half way to my writing goal for the day. Pleasant surprise. Hopefully I'll be able to get more done later.

Deafcon (part of #Defcon) is trying to raise funds to bring American Sign Language interpreters to Defcon this year for the talks, classes, and villages. They're a bit short of their goal to bring eight interpreters this year - can you help?

I'm not every going to try my campnano novel today. Fiction writing will almost never "grab my interest" when my focus is shot because the central ideas are too dispersed through the story.

The good news is, this gives me ever time to work on my non-fiction, which is the kind of thing that can grab my interest bc it's already outlined with clear topics that I AM interested in.

When I say my focus is shot, what I really mean is my ability to control what I focus on is shot. Usually what happens is I vary between hyperfocus on whatever catches my interest and no focus butterfly-brain going all over the place, with no middle ground.

Giving myself the day off. Don't really want to, but recognize that I need to, so...

if it doesn't NEED to be done today, it ain't GETTING done today.

Masking is such an ingrained habit, that I go mute before I revert to flat affect.

This is the result of being taught, having it pounded into me, that nothing was more important than appearing "normal."

Even my voice.

The straw bans literally mean disabled folks can't drink. And no, many can't use the shitty paper ones.

But I'm sure the sea turtles, who are far more affected by industrial plastic pollution than straws and which nobody seems eager to stop, will appreciate it.

Cue gatekeepers all "give them to people who are disabled only." Because they have to look sick.
