SizeCon is back for 2023, back in-person and back in northeastern New Jersey. The last in-person SizeCon was in February 2020, and they’ve spent the last three years doing “micro” virtual conventions. Curiously, I haven’t been able to find any current discussion of vaccination or mask requirements.
June 2-4 in Piscataway-Somerset, NJ. Follow the link for the deets. The site also has an invite to their Discord server where you can pre-socialize. I expect there will also be updates on their Twitter.
Today marks the tenth anniversary of my very first post on any Internet size fantasy site. It was the first chapter of the first size fantasy story I ever wrote for publication. It was a leap of something to decide that I wanted to add my voice to the size conversation, and that someone wanted to hear it. I’ve met several fascinating people in the online size community over the years, and a precious few of them have given me helpful feedback on my writing. One person even said my writing has improved over time.
I’ve been struggling recently to devote most of my free time to writing a story that I don’t know more than a single person would want to read. My motives are divided between wanting to express a vision and just wanting to get more practice at creative writing. I’m also trying to improve my executive functioning, such that simply completing a task I have set for myself is an achievement. I have unquestionably benefited from reader feedback, but “writing for myself” remains my only reliable motive.
I wonder if I shouldn’t experiment with crafting a story that I know I will not share with anyone. How will that inform my judgment? Should that even make a difference?
The goal of the Size Aesthetic project is to develop ways to appreciate size fantasy beyond the simple litmus test of “does it scratch my itches or not.” I always love it when people tell me they get off to the same things I do, but these days I’m more concerned with whether I’ve told a compelling story, whether I’ve described a vivid scene, whether I’ve introduced interesting characters. These concerns, of course, apply to all creative fiction, not just size fantasy.
I’ve never participated in a creative writing workshop, either in school or for recreation. Perhaps I should look into changing that.
We’re coming up on four years since Tumblwintr, and the world is getting yet another demonstration why it’s a bad idea to let billionaires exercise their sociopathy by controlling critical infrastructure. The crazy thing is, Musk isn’t even trying to ban porn on Twitter (yet). If grownups ever regain control of what’s left of Twitter, however, advertisers are going to demand they severely restrict or ban porn. It’s inevitable.
Elle Largesse (aka MightyTinyGiant), among others, is exploring the possibility of creating (and running?) a Mastodon server for hosting size fans. Unlike Twitter posts, Mastodon posts can be added to a RSS feed that can be aggregated by apps like Feedly. Presumably, this server will both allow NSFW content as well as moderating against harassment and hate speech. Here’s a form where you can sign up to be notified if/when they get it operational. I will also update this post with the URL if I learn about it.
Because you obviously delight in the sensations of having tinies in your mouth, your throat, your stomach. We want you to enjoy us as we become part of you. We believe your appetites deserve to be sated, and we are honored to be able to help make that happen.
Jitensha has finally released her enchanting full-color comic, Mystical Miami, which I cannot recommend highly enough. This is juicy M/f smut by the brattiest chiquita out there. A clever story with compelling characters, rendered with masterful perspectives and eye-popping colors. Come for the shrunken sexpot, stay for the Cuban espresso.
