Ran across this interesting post on BoingBoing about why Charles Stross no longer reads science fiction. The link to his post is in the article, but there are some quality links in the BoingBoing post like one to info about mundane sf. Since we’re all trying to get better at writing, I thought this might be valuable…
It’s SmuTTerday again, and you know what that means! Erotic stories, shared by the various random folk that make up our circle of adult-fiction writers. If you’ve got a story, post it in the comments. It’ll be good times!
Well hello, hello, hello, fellow adult writers. Welcome to SmuTT, the Saturday-based erotica writers’ retinue. For this inaugural post, I’d like to say I’m glad there was enough interest to make this a thing that is happening. It’s wonderful. SmuTT was conceived of during a discussion about the revival of Thursday…
In response to no small amount of kvetching I’ve been doing on Twitter about relationships in the past few weeks, some of my writing compatriots have been inspired to look at some of the cultural factors involved in romantic self-deception. Namely, fairy tales (and religious thinking but that hasn’t come up yet). I…
I’m here to announce a new weekly activity here at Thursday Tales: SmuTT!
From my Twitter space-boyfriend, Howard the Duck. You may be seeing yet more of his work around these parts soon.
I will pay good attention for some posts about fantasy/science fiction food.
So, check out this video.
Thursdayliens and friends,
Yes, it’s true! After some decidedly lively and hilarious Twitter meetings with a number of Thursdayliens, Thursday Tales is making a comeback! Not today, obviously! Next Thursday there’s gonna be a lovely Roll Call, written by one of us. Someone. We’re not sure who yet, but someone.
This is super awesome. I’m a little bit sad that I wasn’t that awesome at that age. I’m not even that awesome now. ;_;
This woman says it so well, I had to “hells yes!” more than once.
My sister sent me this and no kidding, I’m flabbergasted.
It’s totally fine, right? Nah, we don’t need better gun laws or....something. We can all shoot each other to death and then nothing will ever be the matter again, amirite?
Dreamt up on Twitter by myself and The Burton Institute, The Vague Halloween Thing is a thing for Halloween. That’s about all I’ve got.
So this article basically lays out why really only black women (mostly) vote for all women and it sure as hell makes a lot of sense of White Feminism.
Has anyone else had this experience? Ever since the election, I’ve had to purge 7 former friends from my life. Some of them had been friends for over a decade but it turned out they were either secretly racist the whole time, or eventually became one. Not sure which.
Nothing worse than a woman who can’t control her menses. Geez, unexpectedly bleeding at work. HOW DARE SHE?
I mean, I get it. I know what it means. I mean, why is Daenerys so hopped up on this? What has she done to earn Jon Snow’s knee getting bent to her? It feels a little bit like she thinks she is entitled to be the queen of the seven kingdoms, even though to me it feels more like she’s saying “I’m back for my dad’s…
On one hand, it would be great if our legislators and their staff had to use the same healthcare that so many Americans have to use and are fearful of losing. On the other hand, what’s the point if they’re going to lose it anyway? I’m sick to death of this. What’s next? My neighbors are all poor people, many of whom…
