My good friend, and fellow photographer, Mel Sinclair, has lost her house, and her dogs in a house fire this week. She is devastated (mostly at the loss of her dog, which is understandable).
A donation page has been set up here: https://www.gofundme.com/sinclair-house-fire-in-kenmore
If you have some spare dollars, she and her parents would greatly appreciate it.
My #introduction post:
I'm a bookseller and writer, in-between publishers and busy writing my third novel - also busy with what might become an important non-fiction project.
I'm a DC and Marvel fan, sometimes play guitar, and used to draw, before I began writing. Anything else about me, in short, is at http://davedeburgh.com
I'm planning on learning more #ASL. We started picking up some signs for the kiddo, and I'm realizing that it's a useful language to know. Plus, kiddo is in the language-acquisition phase, and so maybe we can learn together.
When I joined masto, I gravitated towards following creative peeps and noticed a thing that's pretty common to all of us: we feel guilty for promoting places that people can buy our work or otherwise support us financially. So I started the #CreativeToots hashtag for that very reason. Got an Etsy page? Online store? Patreon? Selling a piece of art? Throw that tag on it. Do it with unfettered abandon. Everyone else: Look at that tag for artists to support. Buy their stuff. Help them create. <3
I'm an artist from South Africa. My favourite media are watercolour and ink. I have been training my left hand because my right hand is damaged. You can buy my work on etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/Dwuff

Mastodon.ART is a great place to go if you make or love visual arts, and @Curator is well worth following even if you don't make an account there.
wandering.shop and writing.exchange and tootplanet.space are all lovely for writers.
A bibliophile? Maybe try bookwitty.social
Really, REALLY hate the letter E? oulipo.social of course!
Want nothing BUT the letter E? dolphin.town has you covered.
Look around, there are literally hundreds to choose from!
