I just finished and published chapter 3 of my story! Check it out and let me know what you think so far. I'd love feedback!

I also added the Solar Seal that my friend Ryan designed to the header. It looks awesome!

A week ago, I mentioned I was gonna write a solarpunk story. I have just 2 chapters so farβ€”an environmental scene and a dialog scene. It's not very solarpunk-y yet, but I'd like some feedback on the direction if you want to check it out:

@adzwoolly Ok, cool. Haha it happens to the best of us :)

I don't know how frequently it'll be, but yeah, I'll probably post here when I add them!

@adzwoolly thanks for reading it! I'm glad you think it's good so far, too!

As for the word choice, I used "there" because the two of them are currently on the boat heading back to the compound and aren't there yet. Do you think there's a better way to make it clearer that there's some travel time before they get back?

I'ma try to write a solarpunk story. I have the first chapter writtenβ€”trying to set the stage super far in the future after geological and ecological shifts have happened without saying it outright.

I woke up thinking of conlanging today, and maaaan I really want to work on Lexiconga today.

@bvtsang I suppose it _could_ count, but I wanna write short stories or long stories. Fiction and whatnot. The majority of my Mastodon writing is personal nonfiction. :P

@bvtsang Prose, mainly... I could (and do) write code all day every day.

I wanna write something. Why can't I write anything?

@latinamnonvoco I should try that method sometime. My problem is usually that I never start writing in the first place because I keep getting caught up on "I have no ideas, what's the point of trying". Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―

I also noticed that I've been using "100%" as shorthand for "completely" a lot recently too. I don't know what that says about me, but I like it so whatever I guess.

I've noticed that I use the phrase "definitely probably" and "probably definitely" a lot and I'm not completely sure where that came from.

I learned about allophones yesterday, which is exactly what my ehw needed to allow flexibility with the vowels!

I also added the concept of word doubling to either emphasize or expand the meaning of a given word. This will allow a tiny vocabulary to have a lot of flexibility! Plus it's fun to say things twice sometimes. :)

Yay! Some guys from my DnD group might learn toki pona with me! I finally have a reason to learn it! haha

Can I get your opinion?

Do you think pairing valid secondary pronunciations of vowels would be helpful or just make things more confusing? i.e. pronounce /Ι™/ as /Γ¦/, /ʊ/ as /u/, and /Ι›/ as /e/.

My bet would be confusing, but maybe allowing for the flexibility would be helpful?

Maybe could add additional meaning/emotion to words so people can choose how they want to express themselves in slightly more specific ways? Then again that would probably definitely be confusing...

In other news, here's my lexiconga for ehw, my simple, air-limited . There are only 25 words so far and not all the grammar is in place, but this is kinda the direction I'm going with it:

I'll still post updates and things I like about what I'm doing with it here, but this is in case anyone ever wants to check out what I've done so far. πŸ˜„
