    Just shared two major lists of autism traits in females with someone who is wondering if they’re autistic and crying as I reread all of the things that led to me pursuing an autism diagnosis at age 48, you know, as one does. These lists literally changed my life.

    @ImmedicableME @actuallyautistic so much of this is me. I’ve never been tested. Probably never will be tested. It’s so expensive and I worry that being tested will put me on some sort of list that will cause me problems. But pretty much every autism list I’ve looked at seems like a collection of my personal traits. But when this one says “had problems as a child knowing when it is your turn to speak,” I wondered why they said “as a child.” I pretty much never know when it’s my turn to speak, and I’m in my 50s.

    fellow writers and poets - what's your fastest rejection. Mine - TWO days - received on Friday. Yikes! @poets @writers

    @lacouvee @poets @writers I’ve received a few rejections within 24 hours.

    @jake @poets @writers @lacouvee I haven’t sent anything there yet. I should give it a try and click my stopwatch.

    @lacouvee @jake @poets @writers I’ve found that paying genre mags seem to have the fastest turnaround, in general. Capital L literary mags seem to take a lot longer. And prestige magazines like The New Yorker take ages.

    Hey and , this mag is soliciting from members and also other forms of from non-members for their second issue. They also pay rather well (comparatively). http://thenewmodality.com/contributor-commitments-rates-guidelines/

    @arielkroon @sffbipoc I’m trying to figure out if it’s worth my while to get a SFWA membership. With the exchange rate, it’s very expensive for me.

    Stole this image from someone who stole this image, and I'm stealing the question, too:

    WHAT FILM MADE YOU GO 'WTF DID I JUST WATCH'?

    Off the top of my head:

    Mother! definitely. Also Society, The Outwaters, Final Prayer (aka The Borderlands), Dead Alive (aka Brain Dead), Skinamarink, The Human Centipede, Infinity Pool, Antichrist, Hausu, Secretary. And I love them all.

    What about you?

    It's not only phalloi that are auspicious: vulvas are just as lucky and protect from evil. Between women, flashing of the vulva is depicted as light-hearted and funny, such as when Baubo flashes hers to Demeter to cheer her up. But Pliny the Elder writes that a woman can avert storm and hail by exposing her vulva towards Z̶e̶u̶s̶ the lightning.

    🏛️ Relief of Baubo exposing her .

    @AimeeMaroux @antiquidons @phistorians if I tried to pose like that, I’d fall over and crack my head. I’ll have to try flashing a storm sometime to see if it results in better weather.

    @marnanel @AimeeMaroux @antiquidons @phistorians maybe! Or maybe she’s really good at yoga.

    It's a day.
    I'm in a dark mood but it will pass.
    It's a good time to share this art, lol.

    This was pure COVID art, made at the beginning when we knew next to nothing & I needed a place to put all my... Everything.
    I wasn't concerned with how it looked or how perfect it was, and for me it remains a perfect snapshot of a moment in time- anxiety, angst, & anger trapped on a page.

    @stina_marie @horror I like this. It conveys claustrophobia and the agoraphobia all at once in the midst of pandemic anxiety. I grok this.

    I know they're the embodiment of Evil but if you have Amaz*n Prime/Audible, they have an exclusive free collection of really good horror stories by some talented authors: Paul Tremblay, Joe Hill, Grady Hendrix, Josh Malerman, Chandler Baker, & Jason Mott. I've read 4 out of 6 so far & they kick ass. It's called the Creature Feature Collection.

    @stina_marie @bookstodon @horrorbooks I just checked, and it’s not free at Audible.ca. Where are you seeing it free?

    @indigenousauthors @writingcommunity oh wow. I emailed them, and there’s a chance I could get sponsored and attend this. That would be so neat! I’ve never been to Nunavut.
