Are we doing #introduction posts again
Hi, I'm Amanda, I've been here since the Tumblr Titty Ban
I'm a writer, fountain pen user, history enthusiast, general fandom goblin, and maker of bad DIY projects. I have a dog, three cats, and four chickens, and I post about them constantly
Feel free to follow and to @ me about whatever!
@alpine_thistle I feel like this is deeply emblematic of your brand. Like if I had to give your eulogy I'd be like "she believed in an afterlife, and she hoped to find a 13th century crusader pope there so she could fight him" and your loved ones would all nod to themselves and say "yes, that's our Amanda." (Also have you seen the Wikipedia entry for this guy? The section on the Albigensian Crusade sounds like it was written by Innocent III.)
The first 15,000 words of my WIP are 100% complete. The remaining 25,000 have gaps.
I'm slooooowly filling in the parts where I left directions for myself to transition between scenes, which is always difficult. Usually inspiration strikes in the middle of scenes, and I write down these scenes as they come to me and leave "working it into the rest of the document" for Future Me to figure out
My methods are a mess. No one should do anything like this.
I have more than one PILF (pope I'd like to fight) but every time I read something that mentions him I'm like "oh this fucker again"
Whatever book/author you think I'm targeting, you are correct
Full disclosure, I am also a 30-year-old white lady with a humanities degree from a (not-fancy) private college
So part of it is like "the only thing these bitches have that I don't is enough money to kiss ass at WorldCon"
I am soooo deeply unimpressed with the vibes of everything Tor is trying to get me to read these days
How brave of you to print one million softboy m/m specfic stories written by 30-year-old white ladies who all have humanities degrees from fancy private colleges. Groundbreaking. Just revolutionary.
America’s covid response has failed in no small part because, from the very beginning, people have been looking for the Product to Buy to fix it — hand sanitizer, masks, plexiglass shields, disinfecting wipes — while maintaining the exact same lifestyle uninterrupted, without any consideration for what actually spreads the disease. every problem must, by rule, have some sort of consumption-based solution
