Hi Mastodon. I'm hopeful this is a better place to be than twitter. Could folks point me to other scifi and fantasy authors on the network?
"So i just came out to my dad abt being #nb, and he said something really wise about names, i think.
He said “Gifts are not obligations. You give things to people, and you hope they like them. And your name was a gift from us to you. If it doesn’t work for you anymore, you’re not obligated to keep it.”
and i just thought maybe other people could use hearing something like that."
Has anyone spoken to @eryn recently?
It's a new social network, let's do our best to follow and boost a diverse group of people!
if I made yet another mastodon to Twitter and vice versa application. what feature would you like?
- an autoposter?
- an actual client that posts to both services?

A user on lgbt.io posted recently about a suicide attempt: https://lgbt.io/@mizui
Profile says she lives in Luxembourgh.
The admin is looking for anyone who might know the poster or have ways of getting emergency services to intercept her / check in on her. We're also looking for people in Luxembourg who might be able to help.

part of the problem is that there are a handful of communities on Twitter that important to my professional practice that I've only participated in mostly as a Twitter handle, and those connections have occasionally turned into important professional opportunities because of my reputation there. so not being active there feels like it could hurt my career and my ability to connect people. which sucks.

I will actually probably read your posts about sexual assault, elections, court cases, Trump, ad nauseum . but I, and others, would like a little warning first, please.
There's a CW button near the next box on Mastodon when writing toots. Please use it. Many of us have come to Mastodon so we don’t see that stuff inadvertently.
