Hello, and welcome back to The Autistic Writer. Thank you for coming. It's Sunday morning, and I'm typing this blog on my phone, intending to upload on mobile data, because I currently have no WiFi. This is not a good way foe me to work, as I have clumsy fingers, and I'm short of time. … Continue reading Part 60: Quantum Foaming
Hello, and welcome back to The Autistic Writer. Thanks for coming. I hope you're all as well as you can be. This is probably going to be a bit of a shorter blog post than normal.

Oh, hello! I didn't expect to see you here. What's that you say? You have an appointment? Oh, shit, I remember, now. You're the one who wanted to talk to me about what it's like to be autistic, right? Sorry. When we arranged that, I got distracted, and forgot to make a note.

Hello, and welcome back to The Autistic Writer. How are you all doing? I'm managing to type with two hands, although still in some pain with my shoulder. I did get my pain-killing injection though!

Hello and welcome back to The Autistic Writer. I hope everyone's as healthy as can be. For my English readers; try to stay calm. Not long now. The omens are good.
