When someone on mastodon gives the best advice <3
CrossSkitch is out now on itch.io!
It's a drawing tool styled after embroidery, inspired by my late great-grandma and my karelian heritage.
I began today with a guided meditation from one of my favorites on the Insight Timer app.
Really good choice,and I'm thankful it was possible (due to partner getting up with the baby before me).
Such a lovely turnout at my book tour event in LA tonight 💛💛💛
any designers on here that wanna help out on a mastodon app for ios? particularly interested in working with you if youre part of an underrepresented group in tech.
boost for visibility? 😊
Who thought that the log in to Netflix sound was a great idea? It's so freakingly more loud than the rest of Netflix, so logging in is just KABAAAAAAM welcome, now you're having a heart attack and woke up every baby in the neighborhood.
I'm getting more and more amazing ideas for stories and novels.
But I'm already working on multiple! I've decided to focus on them for now.
Considering using one of my many empty notebooks to write down new story ideas.
Partner: *deep throat noise* kkrrgghhhaaarrggllhj
Me: That's what Will Wheaton said.
Stares at each other. Begins to giggle.
Me: No, it wasn't a joke, he said that noise in an audio book I listened to yesterday.
So now that's a thing. "That's what Will Wheaton said."
The secret is that no one else actually knows what they're doing either.
BTW, that Minecraft thing....? I'm so freaking hooked I see square trees flying when I try to sleep at night.
I want to share the art of a friend of mine, Lea.
She has build her own online store and brand and she's currently earning her living as an illustrator.
She works mainly with ink and water colours.
In her shop she sells posters and originals. If you want to support a woman in her own business and her art, you can take a look or you can boost this if you want to :)
(she ships all over the world)

Update on the phone call from yesterday.
I decided to keep my questions and a pen on me and tried to relax. Good thing I was prepared, because he called back while I was visiting my grandparents. But get this! He was really nice and not frighting to talk to at all.
I got a better understanding of what they're looking for at the job, so now I feel I have something to work with at this application.
Okay okay, deep breath. I will write down my questions and keep them at me at all times.
FFS, why does it have to be this hard?
Argh! Person I was calling was in a meeting so his secretary will give him a note to call me back.
Now, instead of being anxious up to making the phone call but being relieved afterwards, I'm now anxious until... UNTIL WHEN? Does he even have time to call me back today?! I was so prepared, had my questions in front of me and now... THIS.
TFW you're working up the courage to make An Important Phone Call.
The new keyboard is great! And it got colors ooooh :o
