Also reminds me I have an M5Paper I haven't done anything with.
I meant “Not sure why,” but I was half asleep on the couch when I wrote it and I’m far too lazy to delete and repost.
Not see why but I’m thinking more and more about self-publishing these days.
For a while I had thoughts of starting a really small fiction press, but now that it’s so easy to put out a paperback and ebook at the same time... and since I don’t really have much audience for my stuff anyway... why not?
(Other than the stigma about it not being for “real” writers or “serious” work or whatever, which I am extremely over)
troff/groff writing workflow question
Anybody know of any good troff how-to’s? Pandoc can output .ms files and they work with the groff ms macros, but they don’t work with the ms macros on 9...
I’ve done a tiny amount of LaTeX but never touched troff, and I’m trying to see how much of my writing workflow I can move to 9front.
Brief thoughts on Plan 9 so far, inspired by the SDF Boot Camp: https://systemstack.dev/2021/04/9front.html
9 beginner angst
If I’m honest: still a little intimidated by 9. Diving in to the SDF Boot Camp helps, but at the end of the day I’m still not a very good programmer and my 15-year usage of Emacs/pandoc feels a bit like golden handcuffs.
I love using it, and it feels like a better way is *right there*, I’m just still at a loss for how to rebuild my writing workflow around these tools, and unsure of whether it’s worth the effort.
