I don't know how that can be. I was banned from several places on reddit, but not a one across all the fediverse, and I'm much more active here than I was in reddit

I'm talking more about the buzz when he was still just a cooky candidate that obviously wouldn't be put on the republican ticket, but god damn did he make for good television like every time he appeared! And he just kept saying wild things that we all loved reacting to.

There's a web version, too. I haven't played around with it much, but it looks like you can at least comment or mark resolved other people's contributions

EDIT oh here's a better comment re iOS: https://feddit.de/comment/11148500

Maybe you are, but do you feel oppressed?

We've all got biases, invisible or no that we're working on, like you said. Better to know them though

Wow what a great concept. Really well done!

I mean yeah I also like salt fat and carbs, but compare them to a random food truck and even that outclass them several times over

You guys need to get over this knee jerk reaction that any criticism of the "moderate" party is an existential threat that will move the needle over to the "death" party. The person you're replying to didn't say anything remotely like what you're suggesting.

Yes your republicans are materially worse when they're in power, and you should do whatever you can to keep them out (I'm no accelerationist) including voting for their opposition.

But I honestly think that yes both sides do in part contribute to this fall into fascism. Obviously I'm not saying that there are no progressive elements among the democrats, but y'all need to be able to have these conversations about what to do about the chuds in the democratic party, in addition to voting.

It's so wild to me that one of your two political parties is actively trying to dismantle your democracy and everyone continues on as if it's normal.

 

Welcome to the inaugural writing club update! This is a brand new writing club, first proposed here. I have some ideas about what I want from this club, but where we go from here is open ended.

So feel free to start new posts or spinoffs in between my monthly posts, as long as they jive with the rules in our gracious host community's sidebar, you have my full support. :)

On to the whole point of this club! The following brave things set to text concrete goals for themselves (linked beside their names, just below). If you'd like to join their number, simply say so in the comments, along with your goal for this month. Okay, here are the stars of our show: 👏👏👏👏

Participants

You don't have to share any of the actual material you've worked on unless you want to (you could even use our local Etherpad to share writing stuff - for example).

Here are some questions to start you off. I'm genuinely interested in your answers, but don't feel you need to follow my script. This is just a prompt:

  • How do you think you did on your goal(s)?
  • What would you like to accomplish for our next check-in in August?
  • Is there a part of your project that you'd especially like feedback on?
  • Is there anything about this writing club you'd like us to do differently?

No stress if you didn't accomplish everything you set out to (I fell short and I'm still here hehe). I would love to hear your updates no matter how things went!

I'll share my own progress in a comment below. What I'm hoping from this step is that we treat this as part check-in, and part conversation. This is your chance to really dig into each others' projects (and if someone has done so for you, maybe it would be nice to return the favour and take an interest in their own project? ;))

I've never been in a writing club but I'm interested in trying to get one going. Would anyone else be interested in giving it a go? I don't have to lead it, but will do so if no one else wants to.

What I'm picturing:

  • Monthly check-in cadence
  • Everyone sets a personal goal, and then talks about how they did the previous month
  • No pressure other than what you want to take on to motivate you
  • Maybe some "assignments" in the vein of a creative writing class
  • I volunteer to send members reminder DMs to motivate them :)

I was thinking I'd just start with this post - come up with a goal for myself to accomplish by end of June, and then check back sometime in the first week of July. If that sounds interesting to you, feel free to join in and comment with your goal, and any details you want to add.

PS Also very open to writing club discussion meta. I'm new to this so wide open to suggestios, comments, critique, etc.
