To help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-7 things that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same.
Don't forget to boost good posts with hashtags so that searchable posts make it out to more instances!
With various instances it can be hard to find new people on here, even if you hunt, so I think #followfriday really works here, better than it did on the bird site. @FediFollows sometimes suggests them
But why not use the tag to tell us some people you like to follow.
Don't worry about missing people out. It's not about naming everyone. Just a couple a week #ff

"So, uh, you're an Elf?"
"Are you, like, homo or heterosexual?"
"Me, or Elves?"
"Most Elves are homosexual, some are heterosexual, some bisexual. I am bisexual."
"You like both men and women?"
"What's gender got to do with it? I like both Elves and Dwarves."

#introduction so I can pin this
Hi, I'm Aen!
I'm 22, British-Indian, he/him, I live in the UK, and I am a Computer Science student, specifically going down the Networking path.
My other interests are Eurovision, reading (although I mainly read Sci-fi/Fantasy, I'm very open to exploring other genres), history, and talking to people here!
I have decided to make an audiobook of my first book, new episodes as often as I can record them. I am also editing (just a bit) as I go, with the goal of making a second edition.
Guitar intro and outro also by me.
Fun fact: my book 1 manuscript file was corrupted, so I am also reconstructing it as I go.
I hope you enjoy.
Setting the Write Goals
This probably already sounds obvious, but setting actionable writing goals will help you get closer to your writing dream. These goals can be anything from 500 words a day to 5,000 words a week to “I will have a completed manuscript in six months.” Some writers I know well set a goal of “I will write one hour a day.” This way they account for those inevitable days of write

Have we done a #critiquePartnerMatch here yet? Either way, here's mine!
My passion is #scifi but if I'm being honest, I write (and read) basically all speculative fiction that isn't medieval fantasy. I have a finished novel that I'm querying with, and a bunch of short stories I'd love to improve on.
Looking for a fellow not-fantasy-speculative writing partner to swap ideally long form fiction, but also open to short fiction.
Please boost so others can join in!
