copyright, big publishers Show more
Just filled out a "contributor agreement", meaning I signed away all rights to my text, while somehow retaining all the responsibilities. A big publishers will get all the money, while I get a discount for buying my own text. The eventual publication will cost more than anybody can afford and there can be no open version, so nobody will read that text. I honestly don't understand this.
2019 is gonna be the year we:
- write better image captions!
- use clearer content warnings!
- speak more positively about ourselves!
- call each other out gently on small mistakes!
- bring down two or more national governments!
- get better at setting, insisting on and respecting boundaries!
good vibes only this year ✨
PSA: hey if someone make a toot and then expresses dread at the idea of getting a specific reply guy response, and you decided it'd be funny to say what they're dreading, and you're not their friend, like, stop it. don't send that toot.
i'm not saying i hate you if you did this, but your thought that it would be funny to "ironically" or unironically be a reply guy to a stranger is a bad mistake and i request that you not do it.
