While the novel doesn’t come out, I’m trying to come up with ways to support myself and the cats without working for McDonald’s. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
One of the things I’ve done is to join Patreon. Imagine Kickstarter but for people who are producing constantly, instead of specific projects. In Kickstarter you might support the launch of my novel, in Patreon you invest long term, in me providing you with reading material on a regular basis. It’s like getting a newspaper subscription, except I’m not gonna bore you to death. Not always, anyway.
I started it this week, so I’m still working on the reward system and whatnots. I still am unsure of how much production I want to provide. I don’t want to overwhelm anyone, so I thought of one short story per week, at first. My stories have a length that would be similar to watching a dozen cat videos on YouTube, so I’m sure most people can find the time. Every now and then I might come up with longer stories. Ones that are equivalent of two-hour loop videos of Nyan Cat.
So, if you’re feeling like it, please come by my Patreon page and take a look. There’s some samples of my writing, in case you need some encouragement, and there’s some simple rewards. I am thinking of making some real palpable stuff in the future, to offer as rewards, but for now, you’ll have to be content with being a star in one of my stories.
And while you’re there, check out other projects. There’s tons of cool stuff!
