it's my birthday on friday!
so of course i put up a bundle of all my books on Itch for a special price. (you can also get just one of them on sale if you have the others)
the bundle contains two novels and two short fiction collections. they're all really different from each other!
if you prefer print (and the print editions are lovely, if i do say so myself) you can get them on amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Jennifer-Lyn-Parsons/e/B008A5Z8YA
Does anybody want a cute little black cat? She is friendly and reasonably well behaved. My girlfriend picked her up off the street. She does not have any health issues, but may be pregnant and so can't be spayed or vaccinated and you also may actually be receiving several cats if you take her. I understand that it is not an overly appealing offer but she will likely be headed to a shelter soon if we can't find another home for her. We are in Rochester, NY
#Berlin people: Wanna help with my bra? Wait, it's not what you think of... I never had a good bra, they never really fit somehow and i think i just don't know what i need. Does anybody know of a safe place i as a non-binary trans person could go to to get checked and fitted? A shop, a specific person in a shop you know maybe, even a sex shop if it's possible there. Anything is good.
Please boost, thank you.
When I was a teenager I was told by a more experienced writer that you needed an anthropology degree to write high fantasy or nobody would enjoy or believe your world.
I am *really really glad* I was able to shake the feeling of shame and inadequacy that gave me.
My worlds are messy and silly, sure, but they still have value.
I've been working really hard the past couple of weeks building a new stats system for my web game Improbable Island.
It's a text adventure at https://www.improbableisland.com, there's a lively roleplaying community, player-owned places (with a programming engine!), hundreds of pages of story and no ads/tracking/nastystuff. We've had problems getting new players 'cause the places we used to advertise are all going offline, so if y'all could help me out with a boost that'd be much appreciated
Just because your book is low conflict doesn't mean it can't have Giant Cosmic Horror Space Mermaids

Ich glaub, ich hab jetzt endlich ein CMS gefunden, mit dem ich meinen Blog neu machen will! #gohugo war zwar nicht schlecht, aber ich hätte doch ganz gern was, wo Kommentare schon mit drin sind...
Welches CMS verrate ich aber nicht, ich hab so lange gebraucht um was passendes zu finden, hab keine Lust, dass mir das nun wieder jemand ausredet...😝
Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦♂️
PRE 👏 TTY 👏 PLEASE
And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)
Boost if I'm right.
A friend of mine who teaches elementary school, taught her class, “don’t yuck my yum”
It was like a class mantra, all the kids knew and understood the phrase. So, if a kid brought a bean burrito for lunch, and another kid said “gross! I hate beans” burrito-kid could just say “don’t yuck my yum”
It became the perfect phrase when one student liked something another student hated it. Quickly, it moved from the tangible (food, smells, textures) to the intangible (music, religion, quality)
By the end of the year “don’t tuck my yum” was woven into the culture of the class. They actually used the phrase LESS by then, because yuckers would check themselves before tearing anyone down.
And that class of second graders moved to third, secure in the knowledge that it’s ok to love the things you love, even if other people don’t.
Normalerweise blogge ich ja über LARP Kram, oder Dinge, die ich fürs LARP gebastelt hab... da aber für dieses Jahr alles abgesagt ist, bin ich nicht besonders motiviert was zu basteln und hab daher auch nicht viel zu bloggen... Vielleicht sollte ich mir erstmal andere Themen suchen? Vielleicht ist das auch eine gute Möglichkeit Mal ein anderes CMS auszuprobieren und - wenn ich es mag - mit den alten Beiträgen darauf umzuziehen? 🤔
