Monday 23rd April is International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Day
Due to a series of events that are likely only to be interesting if you are an SF writer, Jo Walton has declared Monday 23rd April as International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Day.
In honour of Dr Hendrix, I am declaring Monday 23rd April International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Day. On this day, everyone who wants to should give away professional quality work online. It doesn’t matter if it’s a novel, a story or a poem, it doesn’t matter if it’s already been published or if it hasn’t, the point is it should be disseminated online to celebrate our technopeasanthood.
Whatever you’re posting should go on your own site. I’ll make a post here on the day and people can post links in comments to whatever they’re putting up on. If you are a member of SFWA, or SFWA qualified but not a member (like me) you get extra pixel-spattered points for doing this. If other people want to collect the links too, that would be really cool. Please disseminate this information widely.
I will be posting a link to the free fiction I already have up, plus a new story. I will also have the delight of making a very cool and entirely appropriate announcement. Yes. Yes, you have to wait a week to hear it.
