I'd like to introduce you to my Patreon account. As some of you know, I've felt the Universe pulling at my writers brain. Okay, so actually it's shoving me off my feet.
Historically, it's been that its shoved me straight on my ass; Alas, I get up and recompose myself every time. Sometimes it takes longer than other times.
I do know that writing and story is central to my life. If there's anything, almost nothing brings me the satisfaction and catharsis of making up extraordinary worlds with characters caught up in the most uncanny situations.
First, a disclaimer: I'm in recovery mode from a recent autistic burnout situation. Comorbid depression, OCD and related conditions combined with the issues some high functioning autistics deal with can be a recipe for disaster. My entire life has been a series of ups and downs, the downs crashing down fast and hard as the downfall of a roller coaster... and I'm ready to direct that momementum into my fiction and memoir. -end of disclaimer
Having said that, those of you aware of my "mind" connection with Phillip K Dick will agree that writing is my dharma; my duty. It's not just that. I really do enjoy writing. And the writing will be good. Let the well of untapped potential be tapped...
This Patreon account and my generous patrons will hold me to some accountability. I pledge to be continuously coming up with original content for you to pursue and showing you what goes into creating my content. The writing is the primary focus, though I intend to work on drawings/sketchings, poetry, and even (a)muse you with my untamed guitar skills. Who knows, once I've learned Python, perhaps I'll code a small program just for you.
You can donate on a monthly basis for as little as $1.00 and as much as you wish. The more my generous patrons donate, the more time and focus I can place into my writing. The funds will cover both costs of living and necessary items, etc. for my content creation.
Anything you feel is worth beginning a donation would be greatly appreciated. I truly feel this is a medium that can really help me launch my writing career. Major kudos to all current and future patrons. Thank you so much!
