@Redseebee@mastodon.cloud 1) she’s an adult. 2) I had to spend part of the day dealing with one of her creepy friends who obsessively posts about me on Twitter, and when blocking him on Twitter, I found this is her display name.
How many weeks has it been?
She IS a shitty adult. Super fucking creepy.
@KitsuneAlicia But at least she can’t talk big about being ready for adult friendships and then hide behind “i’m Three” when she decides to be a creepy person
@KitsuneAlicia You right. She’ll just be a shitty adult
@KitsuneAlicia Her Twitter handle is complaining about me. She’s a shitty adult now. Congrats to her on accountability day.

Just generally, I would be super wary of a class claiming to teach you about publishing, because publishing changes constantly and it’s more like a culture than something static you can learn. It’s also not something really big established megastar authors really have to think about much.
King’s On Writing is a great craft book. I would not ask him how to sell a book, and nothing he sells you is gonna give you a leg up.
Neil Gaiman has a class he is putting on that seems like a real trash fire (4 hour series of videos, $90 for access) that people are mistaking for an in-depth writing course that will give them a leg up and are desperately trying to crowd fund.
So I might throw together a legit list of good resources (paid and free) in a blog post or something. Because yikes.
