It's #NaNoWriMo again! Every November we open up some of our Pro features made especially for novel writing. That includes:

- A higher character limit — all posts have the Pro limit of 500,000 characters
- The Novel blog format — this puts your blog's posts in chronological order, so each one can be a chapter that'll be read in-order
- A dedicated NaNoWriMo blog — a free additional blog just for your novel this month. Let me know if you'd like one!

More here:

@matt I have a question about the app - is this meant more as a note app or strictly an anonymous publisher vs. one we are able to log in to so we can post to a blog? I hope I am not missing something incredibly obvious.

If you would like to help fund the development of :pixelfed:, feel free to donate or become a patreon! Every dollar helps.

Applying for many jobs in a row is pretty demoralizing.

RT so this is clearly the coolest thing we’re all going to see this week


Is there a gdocs alternative that is trustworthy? Something that lets me write, share, and have people see/edit all in one?

Eight months ago I left my job to work on @write_as full-time. It wasn't an easy decision to make, but it's meant that ever since, I get to wake up every day and do work that I truly love.

If you'd like to support what I'm doing, including fediverse projects like @read_as and our Writing.Exchange instance, here are a few ways you can help:

If you use Instagram and your friends join Flickr instead, you'll have to move to Flickr or you'll lose contact with your friends.

If you use Pixelfed and your friends join Anfora... that's fine, because you can still follow each other as these platforms federate together through ActivityPub.

If any part of the ActivityPub network grows, all the platforms on the network get a bigger audience and all members get more potential friends.

Here we go! Are you a trans creator who could use some support and exposure, or do you know one? Add your name to for 2017, where we provide a list of trans people you can support instead of or in addition to your Black Friday spending.

If you're familiar with Github, you can add yourself and submit a PR; otherwise, email us and we'll add you ASAP!

Please boost and spread the word!

What is the gender neutral term for a person who seems incapable of facial expressions and always looks a bit angry or annoyed?

Asking for myself.


the lady next to me also humming along to "rains down in AAAAFFFFFRRRIIIIICCCAAAAAA" (who doesn't love Toto?) <3

I am thinking of taking a drive, but feel kind of guilty about it :/ what's up with that (spoiler: I do actually know what is up with that, but it is dumb and guilt ridden)

it's also kind of weird that I am not sure what to write here... when I should just be writing whatever I want to, like on twitter, right? (I feel dirty even saying that name here, eesh)
