Contemplating upon the fact that I don’t have the luxury of more established authors to completely swear off the hellsite, I’ve created a new twitter account. For now it will just be retweets of my favourite twitter accounts.
I’ll be honest, I have a private twitter account merely for following food and classical music (and science) accounts. In lieu of personal content, I’ve decided to re-follow all these accounts for my new public account. So, till 2022, I’m quite happy to have a wrecked ratio. Doubt I’ll have any short stories etc published this year although I’m told that I’ll be in another Clarkesworld anthology, so that’s nice. I did think of submitting more short stories to see if I could have any out by the end of the year but I’m really enjoying not having to promote anything this year and not having the angst of the year end lists, nominations, etc. At 27 short stories (not including reprints and translations) published, I’m not feeling particularly angsty about lack of publication, which is a good place to be in. So, if I want to consider 2021 my “holiday” from being a professional author, why not? My creative well needs regeneration and healing.
At any rate, friends, if you’d like to re-follow me, it’s the same id as my insta: mythogenetica. I let mythopoetica out into the wild, and I’m quite happy to make another fresh start.
