The Society of Classical Poets has just published our Francesca’s translation of “The Iroha Poem.” This 8th Century poem by Kūkai (空海) is famous in Japan, especially because it cleverly uses each syllable if the Japanese syllabary once and only once. It’s been translated countless times. Her own translation is an attempt to capture the unique combination of wit and feeling that makes this poem such a perennial favorite in Japan.

It's Working: Short Stories - Cough Syrup

I (Jessica) would like to thank Cough Syrup magazine for publishing my short story 'Alien Internship.' They describe themselves as the kind of thing you'd read at 3am on acid. There's an option to download the PDF for free if you don't wanna pay. https://www.coughsyrupmag.com/product/its-working-short-stories/?fbclid=IwAR0P49UntcE2cMZBgdYxJqspom4xYi8RpxiozVNZbm-IR--LZWeVmJ9F0p0

A collection of thirteen short stories. Fiction, science fiction, horror, drug literature, experimental, and pure bliss. Each of these excellent stories stands alone but the collection spins tales of weird and feels of strangeness from beginning to end.

Younger man: You don't need it
Older man: I did a lot of research for it!
Younger man: It doesn't advance the narrative! No one cares that you had 17 tabs open

A character sheet someone on reddit suggested. Looks pretty good once you get past the vast wall of all caps rambling.
What does it mean when I (as an admin) move something into "done"?
20 minutes long, but absolutely beautiful.
See what the people want.
With writing I don't feel burned out during the creative parts, but I do during the revision part. I hate revisions.
