It's slowed down a little bit over here, I gotta say. But you're still nicer than Twitter, Mastodon. <3

@chuckwendig A bit yeah. I kinda like that it’s a bit slower over here? I dunno. I don’t get that same emotional exhaustion.

@chuckwendig It's rater predictable. Twitter/someone on Tw does something stupid->Mastodon influx->Much activity->Major slowdown->Repeat. Seems like the slowdowns aren't as big as they used to be, and that's a good thing.

@chuckwendig Damn, now I'm thinking, "quick, come up with something entertaining to toot to make the TL move faster"

@Gargron @chuckwendig but not too fast. I like to savor the tastiest toots and feel terrible when I am rushed.

@chuckwendig I kinda like being able to keep up with things. Now when I switch to Twitter and I see all my lists updating I can feel the information overload.

@chuckwendig Mind if I ask what resources you used when writing your Star Wars books? I recently wrote a short for one of the comics and it was surprisingly HARD.

(Lots of fun, but hard.)

@fasterthanshaun Resources? Um, stupid answer, I guess, but the standard: TV shows, films, canon books and comics.

@chuckwendig It happens in bursts of activity... The past few days have been more signal less noise...

@chuckwendig The Mastodon snowball may be stuck on a ledge, but the twitter handbasket is still going downhill. Things were so much nicer before the election.

@chuckwendig I've also noticed the slowdown, but I like it here so much it's worth the slower drip.

Glad you like it here. <3

@chuckwendig it's like waves ahead of a tide. There are surges of activity and then people get back on their old habit. The average activity has still gone up though. 😀 There will be another wave. There always is.

@chuckwendig

Some of us prefer "sedate" over "slow".

We are in no rush. There is time to think about what reply to make, if any.

@chuckwendig Welcome to the wonderful world of early adoption. :)

@chuckwendig We all got worked up by your arrival, then resumed our normal mellow somnolence.

(Hey, I need to work the word "somnolence" into one of my tech books. Having to look words up really annoys my computer-geek readers.)

@mwlucas @chuckwendig a non-trivial number of us just assume it means whatever we guess it means because we are classy well-educated aubergines who are rarely wrong.

@chuckwendig True, but lots of cute animal pix and relatively little hostility. Still figuring this out though.

@chuckwendig I'd love to be able to read where I left off here and then read in chrono order. Mastodon just feels more awkward. And I'm really owner here for a handful of authors like you. :)
