Who writes this stuff?
Hi, ‘Likho’ is the alias I publish my writing under. For the most part I keep real life separate from my online life.
I am making it a habit to publish at least 1,000 words per month, either as a short story or a new chapter. The newest content appears on ArchiveOfOurOwn/Likho first. After typos and errors are edited out, a Neocities page is made for it.
My favorite types of websites
RE: “Is this you?”
If you have received my e-mail address from your company’s web form, chances are it is not me.
I am not on the following platforms:
- Facebook (or Instagram)
- Amazon (or Royal Road)
- Google (or Plus, YouTube)
- Ko-fi, Patreon, fanbox, any online patronage sites and marketplaces
RE: Free|libre culture, copyright
I am a supporter of free culture. Whenver I can, I would license my work under CC-BY-SA. I don’t have a favorable opinion of copyright and prefer to ignore copyrighted works.
RE: Criticism, concrit, less than positive opinions
I don’t have eggshells regarding critique or criticism. But I won’t agree with every piece of feedback I receive. For both site design and content, honest feedback doesn’t have to be sugarcoated.
RE: Tips, donations, trades, commissions
- I do not transact online in fiat currency.
- I transact online exclusively in ‘monnaie libre’ (libre|free currency).
- I commission other people.
- I don’t take commissions at the moment.
I only accept Ğ1 at the moment. Check my support page for extra information. (I used to have a Monero address, but its fallen to disuse.)
I’m open to participating in fic trades or exchanges. Most of that takes place on Dreamwidth however. I don’t have a reason to sign up for Dreamwidth when I have Neocities.
I am not signing up for Discord.
I know it collects user data, doesn’t sell user data, and that it’s revenue comes from “Discord Nitro”. I don’t want my data to be a corporations asset either perpetually held by Discord or transferred once Discord is sold. I don’t care there’s a setting I could turn off or that I should use a VPN+sandbox. That is not actually relevant to why I do not use it.
Within writing and fandom communities, I’m also disappointed in that Discord has become the go-to for communication. When I tried Nanowrimo, the forums were mainly for advertising writing groups which took place on Discord. I am also disappointed in that ArchiveOfOurOwn held an event on International Fanworks Day also over Discord.
I wish fan communities didn’t evaporate from the publicly indexed web to Discord.
RE: NSFW, erotica
I generally do not write NSFW or erotic content, but I also don’t have moral reservations against it.
