@makyo "Swish as a company didn't expect that their social media company would inherit social problems. Everybody should come together and just have fun, right? Swish employee Jared finds himself having to do some introspective Q&A when he falls for queer streamer Dave who wants Swish to provide protective tools. Is Jared Agile enough to avoid Cupid's arrows or will he succumb to Dave's charms? Only time and Development will tell!"
Thanks to those who joined in the plot structure panel today! We outlined in real time an LGBT romance about a transphobic streaming company called Swish with a proposal for a 'yeet the TERFs' button! You can find that and the tools we used here:

Today's MFA generative workshop was about subtle ways to introduce surprise/interest into writing. We talked about showing the subject in the world around them. We were shown a gif of a penguin and told to show a world that would contain such a thing.
Patrons! Things got all busy! My apologies. To make up for it, I've scheduled a week of daily episodes of Qoheleth for you to enjoy, starting today! I may not announce them all because I'll still be busy, but trust me, you'll get them.
