That moment when your practicing Spanish and reviewing 'underwear (mens)' reminds you that you haven't had pizza in a while.

Has anyone else been Followed/Subscribed by "CreatorOfLove" on Patreon? They seem new & give me bot/scam vibes.

They pitched that being each others $5 patron to boost our individual Patron numbers and therefore encourage MORE people to pledge when they see how popular our Patreons look...

Are they legit but misinformed? Or do I ban/report them?

They have 1 chapter up on their Patreon, both created 6 days ago.

I have been too dubious to Subscribe back to see what their stories are like.

RT @phildini Hello Shop Patrons!

I'm planning on upgrading us to latest Masto version sometime today.

I'll make another announcement here and in our discord server (which you can join by messaging me).

Linguistics, Plurality, request for opinions.

I've been increasing making intentional use of plural versions of you, usually 'you all', 'yous' or 'y'all'.

Is it appropriate to use these when referring to a collective? I've noted that several collectives here refer to themselves with plural pronouns ('we', 'us' etc) unless speaking of a specific member of the collective, but don't want to assume.

Thanks!

a re-introduction of sorts, about autistic and plural rhetoric

RT @dessicance we (our collective, we're plural) have this book of poems we want to publish. this would be our third.

we're kinda...sighs, disregulated as heck about this.

the thing we really don't like is that, as it turns out, writing with autistic and plural rhetoric (see melanie yergeau's "authoring autism" and julia miele rodas' "autistic disturbances" for in-depth exploration of autistic rhetoric and agency) doesn't really...ok.

So, this is annoying.

I forgot I had a bunch of world building and character notes on the same doc as my current draft of Planting Life in a Dying City.

So I didn't reach 50,000 words yesterday. In fact, I have just a bit more than half that done.

Granted, this makes more sense given where I am in the drafting process. but it's still a bit of a let down.

Does anybody know scientific research being done on plurality, but not limited to dissociate disorders? As in how can it be modelled/explained/understood, neural correlates or other.

Both on psychological and neurological level is appreciated, and ideally a combination of both. Thanks!

Morning all.

I'm hoping that I personally manage to have a quiet day. So far, it's looking good. Got a good night's sleep, answered my quota of ridiculous-quora-questions for the day. Now I've got some writing to do.

Polyam&Kink?
Life in a Dying City?
Hmmm....

Hope your day is going well!
