One of the most annoying things about practicing is when I only remember on or two aspects of a sign. Like remember the hand shape and location but not the motion, or the motion but not the handshape... It give me a 'on the tip of my tongue' feeling that just drives me crazy.

Anyone here in the Shop (or elsewhere in the Fediverse that recovers this note) planning on doing Camp NaNoWriMo? Looking for some cabin mates.

I'm going a little overboard on moods in this conlang. I know that's often a thing for an English mono-linguists first conlang, just because it's so differnet from what we are used to.

But I'm having fun with it, and I think I'm avoiding most of the major mistakes of a newbie conlanger. So is all good.

Ok, so I have a tweet that's getting kind of popular on birbsite and I want to share the essence here too:

A guy tweeted that MySpace had lost all the music uploaded to it from 2003-2015. " An entire archive just... gone, forever."

So... this is your periodic reminder that uploading stuff to a website isn't an archive.

Morning all.

Executive function is low, otherwise seem to be doing good today.

Wish it were warmer. WHAT HAPPENED TO SPRING!


How you doing?

Hello Mastodon!
This is going to be my first self-promotional toot.

Hello, hi, my name is Veronica.

I have finally published my #gamewriting portfolio, and to not let it go in vain, I am sharing it here in hope of like-minded people finding it.

I am looking for #indie #videogames projects who need a writer, even smallest jobs. I am also interested in #narrativedesign tasks.

Boosts and recommendations to friends are tremendously appreciated.

#gamedev #writing

@jessmahler yes, absolutely! I think most people should do it. I think for those who have a higher chance of dying sooner, though, it's practically mandatory if you want to be kind to the people you leave behind (AND have the spoons)

@platypus My partner and I were just talking about that the other day. We are still working on getting all our passwords in one place, but we have most of them together and told each other where to find them.

And it's not just important if you are in failing health. Anyone can get hit by a bus.

Dispatches from working through my father's digital estate -- if you're in failing health (and/or just want to set up your estate), please set up a password manager and share the password in some place people handling your estate can get to it.

It's made a HUGE difference.

Trying for unusual/uncommon ideas that you might not already have --
*Metal wires scavenged from dumps.
*Casein plastics (learning-center.homesciencetoo)
*Pedal powered systems from scavenged bikes (can be used to power water pumps, mills, electric generators if you are a lucky schmuck with a working one, etc) (basically Pedal Genney described here:
*Readings/recitation of old books/plays/shows
*Paper and ink
*childcare for parents at the market

Morning all.

Doing better today, tempted to try for a full day (I miss doing my stuff, damn it!) but restraining myself because that was BAD burnout yesterday and another day of rest is a good idea.

Hoping it a warm day today. Temp has been yoyoing and I'd really like to go out and sit in the sun later.

How you doing today?

A goal I think aro activism should focus on is building and supporting systems of community care.

I think an important part of aro activism should be creating space for the possibility of never having a romantic partner. But, that means more than just being single, it also means making sure people can survive and thrive while single.

Our amatonormative world expects a lot of the support we need as people to come from our romantic partner. But, if you don’t have one, does that mean you just shouldn’t get the support?
