Enthusiasm, that is. What did you think I meant?
Some personal circumstances in my life have taken me away from my writing during the last year. Those circumstances have changed now, and I can finally settle down and once again put words to screen.
I know I’ve probably lost a few readers during that time, and for that I grieve. I can only hope that now that I can be back on a somewhat regular schedule some of those readers will return.
I’m also toying with the idea of creating a Patreon site. If you haven’t heard of this site before, it’s basically a patronage site where readers pledge anywhere from $1/month on up to support their favorite writers. In return they receive some “behind-the-scenes” stuff on a monthly basis – previews of new work, peeks into the writer’s life, maybe even hard-copies of their favorite stories. An example Patreon site is here.
Why am I considering this? Well, those aforementioned circumstances, although they have freed up much more of my time, have also left me in a certain financial bind. I’m not ashamed to say that I’m looking at several possible ways out of this predicament, but Patreon would allow me to continue writing while still ingesting edibles on a fairly consistent basis.
I’ll keep you all informed of what happens.
