Tell the story that needs to be told, in the way it needs to be told, to the length it needs to be told.

Don’t poison a story by insisting it must be an apple when it’s really an orange.

Don’t stunt a story by forcing it beyond its natural growth nor by forcing it to grow in a box too small.

“Genres” and “standard story lenghs” are publisher’s artefacts, not part of storytelling.

Breakthroughs don’t come through abiding by conventions and working in boxes.

Twidere is a very nice F/LOSS Twitter client available through FDroid:

https://f-droid.org/en/packages/org.mariotaku.twidere/

Issue:

Trying to login to Twitter with it gives “Incorrect API Settings” message

Fix:

Remove the account. Somehow you’ll get to an Advanced > Network > API settings screen that has a Load Defaults button. Tap it. When it’s finished, go to Accounts and add your account back.

Question:

How to log out of Twitter from Twidhere?

Answer:

Remove the account. Not at all intuitive, but that’s how it works.

10:30 AM, October 19, at the Kapolei Public Library, I and three other Hawaii Fiction Writers members will each be reading a story for the annual HFW Scary Stories Halloween reading. Followed by lunch at the Kapolei Assagio’s, server of extremely tasty Italian cuisine.

My story is about a man, a mouse, and the association of small things: Just A Little Scary.

For more information, see the event on the Hawaii State Library site.

So come and be scared, if you dare!
