Welcome to JR's April 2022 Newsletter
Here is what I have been up to...
I tried out Mastodon for a bit but its not really for me I think.
I also made a gemini capsule. There are 6 sections including a Guestbook. The one that is the most interesting to folks seems to be the Solarpunk section.
I started 750 Words, which is a daily challenge to type about 3 pages. Lots of fun thing like badges, monthly challenges and metrics that measure what you are writing. I maxed out at a 10 day streak but allergies go in the way and I missed a few days.
I've been posting near daily on Dreamwidth. A sampling of my posts:
I have a few readathons such as Translatathon coming up in May. I also have some interesting solarpunk things coming up. I don't know if I will go back to Multiverse, I really enjoy my gemini capsule and Dreamwidth.
