I have a Patreon now!

I need to eat.
I need to create.
I need to network to access resources to improve my writing. I need to not have to choose between eating and transportation.
I need to sell the anthologies I am in to make money at conventions.
All this and more is why I have turned to Patreon, where I have unique content, and I plan on going deeper into the trials, the tribulations, the struggle, the drive, to not just survive with a major mental illness, but to live, thrive.
It’s not a smooth journey.
Interested? Become a patron.

Help me live.

Quoth

“The most important thing if you want to be a writer is to find something to get you going. What usually works for me is a deadline. Sign up for a writers’ class, join a writers’ group, volunteer for a local paper — do whatever you have to do so that someone somewhere is expecting you to hand them something. Make it as good as you can make it, and then show it to someone and listen to what they have to say and then go at it again.

If that sounds like fun to you, then maybe you are a writer. If it sounds like lunacy, if it sounds like torture — you’re probably right too.”

Stuart McLean
