The one and only time I’ve visited the UK I made sure to visit the British Museum, because I grew up in Egypt, and every museum there has several exhibits that are just a sign reading “we’d love to show you this, but the British stole it to put in the British Museum”

i'm going to be checking out some of the events at this week. I'm especially excited about the ones on writing short fiction and doing research for historical fiction, and also Carrianne Leung's interview with Matthew Salesses who wrote Craft in the Real World

One of the unexpected joys of the fediverse over other places is the addition of weird domains appended on to everyone's usernames.

It makes the web feel like more than just four websites again.

It's both a signal of a smaller more intimate internet and also a larger and far more diverse internet at the same time!

Don't forget to boost good posts with hashtags so that searchable posts make it out to more instances!

So what kinds of writing do you do? What projects are folks working on?

I am revising a collection of SFF short stories at the moment. I also have an early draft of a fantasy novel that I should get back to but it is on hold I have more time and energy.

I also try to write poems and have my debut chapbook of translated modern and contemporary Chinese poetry forthcoming in the fall.

I have over 6k folks following me on Twitter so being on here is going to take some adjusting to. It is so comparatively quiet in comparison lol.

I am hoping there will be more familiar faces soon. I use Twitter for conversations, long threads, and community, especially with other queer BIPOC and with translation/Chinese lit Twitter. I also spend too much time thinking about cdramas and wuxia literature.

Is there a way I can invite folks I know to join this server? Can't find any invite buttons
