"Free world building idea: Wizards have the same trust in magic that software designers have in software, which is to say, almost none at all."

Finally launched the kickstarter for a book of my illustrated haiku poems! It's like my passion-project, so any pledges/shares are super appreciated. Also, check out the page if you want to watch a video of my battling being camera-shy/curbing my gesticulation.

Heya everybody! Just a friendly reminder that the due date for #TalesFromTheFediverse is next week! If you, for whatever reason, can't make the deadline, just tell me, and don't worry, there's always next issue (if and once I announce it). If you need *just* a wee bit more time to finish, also tell me, just know that *at the very latest*, I need it in by the end of the month.

If you're not contributing, the comic'll be out on May 5th!

And as always, boosts are appreciated!
