Okay, an actual #introduction:
I'm an #sff writer with a few dozen short stories out (most recent one linked below!) & a #solarpunk novella forthcoming. For 6 years, I've run a #smallpress that's currently on hiatus.
I don't post my every thought on social media, but I do scroll. A lot.
Here's that story, text & audio:
I dislike doing #introduction posts, because my identity is at once inscrutably strange and frustratingly typical. I am not defined by my interests so much as by the contradictions between them. I am the shadow that can only be cast in bright sunlight. Those who think they know me know only a distorted reflection of themselves.
Also, I like tea.
@debmerriam I had the same position last year, and can absolutely confirm: the Grist folx are wonderful. I'm excited to dive in again!
I am a story reviewer for Imagine 2200, a #climatefiction & #solarpunk contest seeking #sciencefiction stories that show a path to a clean, green, and just future. (Or just show what it's like to live in that future!)
Feel free to message me with any questions!
