Hey friends, my rear tyre's sidewall has developed a hernia. Is this salvageable? (Compass 52mm smooth tyres)

@golgaloth@writing.exchange avatar

@federicomena Oof. Nope. That'll need replacing. I mean, you could use a really large patch, but you're probably going to lose your innertube if you don't replace the outer.

Does your character have a pet? What is the pet's secret?

Yes, I'm at the same Japanese restaurant as yesterday. Because it's good.

At , the Australian science fiction writers con, and the main, constant lament seems to be that it's so difficult to get any traction as a new author, either through small press or self publishing. There are so many books!

@imalcolm glad you're enjoying it. Word of mouth seems like the only reliable way to get sales, so do say more later.

A monster on your world displays surprisingly intelligent activity. Has the monster gained some sense, or is someone steering them?

Does your character have a favourite place to eat?

The disposal cityscape view from my hotel window. It makes an interesting change, but I wouldn't want to live here. #Continuum16 #travelling #Melbourne

, 17 Have you ever written for other age groups?

I don't write for any age group in particular. They are all welcome.

@golgaloth@writing.exchange avatar

@elysegrasso It's mostly a marketing thing. They want to sell books more easily. Parents should pay more attention to their children and buy for them individually, rather than because the market says so.

Not me wasting the last hour online looking at art supplies. ๐Ÿ–Œ๏ธ๐ŸŽจ
I almost convinced myself I need a giant set of Copic markers (Fun Fact: I do NOT).

I've only been in Melbourne half a day and already I'm writing another story. This is probably a short or novella. Getting out of my normal routine, and away from the happy blandness that is Northern Tasmania, has really sparked something.

Do you find writing away from your home easier or more difficult?

Have you ever attended a writer's fair / festival to promote your work? Would you?

I'm just about to. I'll be at Continuum in Melbourne, Australia, this weekend. Mostly just to see what's what, but also walking around with a sign and a few books. I do want to give away some review copies, if I can find a good fit.

Well well well, look at what delightful new treasure the post has brought me, courtesy of the lovely and talented @golgaloth ! ๐Ÿฅณ ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐ŸŽ‰

@imalcolm Glad it arrived okay! That's the last of the kickstarter backers as well, so the book will be available to the rest of the public soon. Let me know what you think.

@imalcolm Yeah. Those COVID bouts are no fun at all.

@golgaloth@writing.exchange avatar

No, no. Of course I didn't change the churches stance on contraception. I'm just joining in with the Climate Debate to gain popularity. We still want our worshippers actively oppressing women, spreading deadly, sexually-transmitted diseases, and adding to population growth which is a major cause of climate change.

The workers in your world go on strike, or are unable to perform their duties for some other reason. How well does your society hold together?

Law No. 2 of home maintenance/repairs: the tool you need for the job right now isn't in your toolbox. You lent it to Dave four years ago and he hasn't given it back.

@fraser @imalcolm @MichaelPryor

But I lent it to Jacko. You'll have to talk to him.
