Hello, my friends.
How ARE you?
As some of you have already discovered, I've started up a Patreon.
I started it for a few reasons. First, I started it because I missed doing what I used to do in this space, on this website. I wanted to find out if starting that up again—albeit in a different place—would be something that people would like to see, to read, to participate in.
Second, I feel like I've been spending more and more of my time on Twitter, and lately, most of that time I've been either furious or despondent or both. (ODDLY ENOUGH, those feelings seem to have started in early November of last year. *side eyes news*)
Which isn't to say that I don't like Twitter anymore. THAT IS NOT THE CASE. I looooooooooove Twitter. It's just a different sort of online interaction—conversations there are faster, shorter, more off-the-cuff. *side eyes news again*
Third, I miss talking about stories.
I miss talking about them at length.
I miss having a specific place to do that.
If you're so inclined, head on over to my Patreon.
Let's talk books and movies, comics and podcasts, television and music and pop culture and weird science and strange history.
Let's share recommendations.
Let's use story and stories to understand each other and our world.
