Counting down the days until my laundry room is not also my kitchen.

Is it even a flea market if there isn’t an artfully-posed haunted doll?

I have started an instance dedicated to #screenwriting and #filmmaking. Why not create an account and be a part of a nice little community for all of us who love storytelling?

At the moment we are in the need for some funding, not much but some, in order to pay for appropriate server capacities.

Serious question: Easter was more than a week ago and my children (ages 1 and 3) seem to have forgotten about the chocolate bunnies I got for them. Is it okay for me to eat them?

No cats over here - husband is horribly allergic - but this is Bailey Jo and she is getting groomed tomorrow.

How’s everyone’s day so far? I wrote morning pages, paid some bills and watched the end of “The Ultimatum” on Netflix and now I’m at a loss for what to do next.

(Writing. I know the answer should be writing but I’m between projects and not sure what to work on.)

Question for folks: are we keeping the content here focused on writing, skewing more personal, or a little bit of both?

So by some small miracle I actually didn’t have any work for the day job today, after being slammed yesterday, which was supremely helpful as I was stuck entertaining a not-so-sick 3-year-old with my mother out of town and unable to help.

Here is the tl;dr for the #newbies about #Mastodon terms:

Toot = a post (or 'tweet')
Boost = re-sharing content (or 'retweet')
Favourite = liking or bookmarking something (or a 'star')
CW = content warning (basically self-censoring a post)
Instance = a version of Mastodon (like a Discord server or Reddit subreddit)

Remember 2 things:

1. if you don't like the way an instance is governed, you can always choose another
2. The internet isn't the be-all of life. Go outside & enjoy the sunshine


I may not have a kitchen but the mudroom my husband built from scratch is almost done. (It’s not quite this blue IRL.)

This is already more fun than Twitter and I’ve only been here 20 minutes.

I feel like I should have a clever first post but today was the Mondayest of Mondays and I don’t have the energy.

I think I might like it here though…
