So, I haven’t blogged in a couple of weeks. Partly because I’ve been busy with work and getting BLOOD-BOUND, Book 1 of Ace Assassin ready for querying.
I admit a little of that is a desire not to blog and just, I dunno, give my words and myself away. My hopes for more patrons to help me keep supporting this blog seems doomed to failure.
Unless you can help me out with that?

So more of my time has to go towards things that have some potential to making me money sooner than later. I have hope on the horizon for the immigration thing finally being finished and my legal paperwork in hand.
Yet, you know, that’s not going to change a lot when it comes to my day to day life. I really can’t work and write/edit. It’s one or the other. I don’t want to give up my writing and editing. I really don’t. But unless something changes, I’ll have to give up my calling just so I can afford dental.
So… more of me, my limited amount of energy, spoons and time goes to the writing/editing/querying.
Yet… I’m moved to blog today because I found (to my surprise) that I’m blocked on twitter by someone I don’t know, have never heard of before and (to my knowledge) have never done anything to.
I don’t *think* I’m a horribly confrontational person, I try very hard not to be.
Yet for some reason, this other writer has me blocked.
I don’t know why. In my aspie way, that bothers me A LOT.
There is this culture of preemptive blocking and self-defense in all forms of social media these days, and I just don’t understand what is with people who do it.
I really don’t. I don’t block someone unless they’ve done something pretty bad TO ME. If they’ve done something nasty to a friend, I’ll call them on it, privately if I can and always politely.
So to find myself blocked in such a way truly confuses me.
Go figure, another aspect of social interaction that I don’t understand.
