Qoheleth Ep 030: Ioan Bălan - 2305

Prairie and fox - engagement - a name - apostasy - first lines - games.


As promised, there is a new sample chapter of Toledot available here: toledot.makyo.ink/sample2/

You can also get 10% off the ebook here: makyo.gumroad.com/l/toledot-eb
And 10% off the paperback here: makyo-ink.square.site?cc=book

I'm also cancelling the Toledot reading today, my apologies. In lieu of that I'll release another sample chapter and offer dinner discounts. Just struggling.

Nevermind! Will try doing the reading at 4.

In about half an hour), I'll be hosting a panel on creativity and mental health and at 4PM Pacific (2.5 hours), I'll be giving readings from A Wildness of the Heart and Toledot for @furcon home edition!

You can tune in on twitch.tv/drabmakyo

Patronfriends of the $10 variety get the first pass developmental edits of Nevi'im, the third Post-Self book. Please enjoy Maddy fretting about pacing.


@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:


Next on FC home-edition:

Come join for a generative workshop on plot structure! Even if you're not an outliner, it'll be fun! Voice/text chat will help write a story outline.

Discord link is discord.gg/qk4mZ9wF , but I'm moving to twitch because OBS is being a pain twitch.tv/drabmakyo

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.
