THIS IS THE ONE POST WHERE I'LL BREAK FROM CHARACTER: Okay, fine. I'm gonna figure out how to take advantage of Ello. And I think what I can use it for is just as a place for me to type as if I am not me. As if I'm the me that breaks off from my current reality, and enters the reality of my novel, which leads to the future-me dying in 20 years of unexplained causes (perhaps a murder? perhaps a suicide?) Because of the shitty text layout, I am not going to use any of this text in my novel. But I am going to use it to explore the character to the me-that-is-not-me if I diverged from who I am now. And I will now start to comment on others' posts using that persona, not as the me that I am now. BE WARNED. Any post after this is from that perspective.
