I’m unabashedly proud of something I’ve made. “Take On Me” is the best thing I’ve ever written.
It’s a story about love, grief, food, music, and the people who accept you exactly as you are.
And now it’s not just mine anymore, it’s yours, too.
i run http://lunastationquarterly.com, a speculative lit mag for women-identified authors.

my alt is https://icosahedron.website/@pixelpaperyarn which i use for various writing talk and announcements.
i show my learning process, hopefully demystifying how the tech industry works. i chat about the ideas i have that i don't have time to manifest.
i'm a neutral good paladin and i am friends with chaos. systems have their uses, but my moral code will always take precedence.
i believe in kindness and do my best to help when i can.
i do a LOT of things, many of which are meant to be helpful to other developers and some just because i love doing them.

realizing my mana (spoons, executive function, whatever you want to call it) is running low lately. that’s why i’m pondering ways to reduce friction in my life and daydreaming about external services to take the load. what i really need is space and rest and perspective.

Sadly I've been kicked out of a bunch of groups for having the unpopular opinion that artists shouldn't work for exposure. People don't like being held accountable.
"But we're showcasing their art to our 20,000 group members!"
I don't fucking care. Do you know how low click-through rates are just for follows, and how few of those actually convert into sales? It's minuscule. Fucking pay them instead.
RAAAH *shakes fist at the sky*

Look at this pull request.
I mean, this commit, it's just so small.

Kitchen sink full of stars like coffee ground
I try to hide from my flatmate,
like the glitter in my hair my ex rinsed off me

we couldn’t help
but aim for her hands.
