I was supposed to post this yesterday but I completely forgot about it. Part of it was just that I’m forgetful, but I’d say a large part of it was simply because there’s been so much going on.
And because Menoly distracted me yesterday, but I give her such little attention that I can’t hold it against her.
So, where to start?
How about with all of the amazing people who have become my patrons?
Most Generous Supporters
Janus – Who decided to plop down right between Supporter and Major Supporter. Well done.
That’s right, 41 fantastic patrons who have collectively pledged $126 a month to help me reach a point where I can write full time.
Or, you know, just really wanted those early chapters.
Either way is fine.
And if you noticed the math doesn’t check out – don’t you lie to me, you weren’t counting- it’s because Patreon takes 5% plus payment fees. Think it comes out to like 8% or something all around.
But the boring aspects of it aside, 41 of you donated.
I can’t thank you all enough for your show of support and while we’re still a long ways off from our goal seeing how quickly you all chipped in to help makes me think we might really be able to pull it off.
Gods, I hope so.
But until then, I still have writing that needs to get done between work so let’s finish this up so I can get back to working on chapter 103.
And on that note- progress! I’ve mentioned this already but chapter 102 is done – and has been- and as of last night chapter 103 has reached 70% complete.
Technically I only need to get the regular 5k doen each week to keep up, but I figure that if I spend a few weeks eaking out all the tiem I can to get further ahead I won’t have to worry as much.
It will also free up time dfor some of my other projects.
In this case, I’m bumping ‘Write a book’ to the top of the project list so I can get it published and- more importantly- sold. I have a few ideas, it’s just a matter of deciding what would work best and what I can create a satisfying ending too.
Planning out plot isn’t exactly my strong suit, I usually just write as it comes to me.
Of course, if I was any good at it I could just write smut and fill Amazon with my cheap, sub-par porn. Sorry, “Erotic Novellas”. You have no idea how much I would love to be able to say that I make a living writing porn. I think that would be absolutely hilarious.
But speaking of writing, I need to get this finished so I can do some.
Because I don’t have nearly as much free time as I need all other projects will be put on hold for the foreseeable future, though I will return to them as soon as I can. This doesn’t affect most of you as none of my projects have really seen the light yet but I know there will be a few of you disappointed at the delay.
Streams will continue, I have one every Tuesday at about 6pm (UTC-7) and they last between 2-3 hours depending on if anyone’s watching, how engrossed I become, or how much I know I need to get back to writing because I’m nowhere close to my goal for the day.
It’s usually that last one, honestly.
If people like the idea I might do a “Just Chatting” stream while working on my writing, but I suppose we could all just jump into discord for that.
On second thought, having too many people talking would not be conductive to writing, nor would distracting me. Still,an option to keep in mind, I suppose.
Commentary this Sunday, Chapter 102-B for Patrons on Monday, stream Tuesday [FFXV], Update Wednesday, and then nothing until the following Monday when 102 goes public and 103-A is up on Patreon.
So I think that about does it. Thank you all again for your support and until I next have your attention,
