For those who aren’t supporting me on Patreon, I’ve announced over there that I’ve started rewrites on my urban fantasy novelette in progress working titled The Daiyu Saga and those chapters will be the new Patron only stuff.
That done, I will likely list a bunch of my source material on Etsy along with some other stuff.
I’ve also been thinking about what to do with The World (go back to last Sept to read them all) I still have a deep interest in putting them together in a collection of linked stories. I’m thinking I could do that as a kindle book, try it for KDP select and that way a LOT of folks could read them for free/I wouldn’t need to manage the way I do my Etsy stuff.
I’m also working on SCLAB stuff and essays.
My output right now is pretty consistent and I’m pleased with it. I put a new piece up at Medium about marginalized writers and risk.
While I’m very happy with what I’ve been writing lately, what I’m not as happy with is that I’m again finding myself in a pressurized position because economically, not one of these things is really viable for me in a way that helps me life my actual non writing life.
Intellectually I know that even as things are, my partner and I still have our little apartment. He’s got the medication he needs. We have food.
Emotionally speaking, if my non writing life is the toy I am these birds. Inside my brain there are cats, hamsters, puppies a carnival wheel and a class full of first graders hopped up on Mt. Dew all losing their collective shit at top volume pretty much all the time.
My Poverty Brain has kicked in full speed with anxiety kicker.
I will say that unlike previous years, the shit fuckery in my head isn’t causing me to be unable to write so there’s that.
That said, I’m stuck at that point of making some of this shit profitable while battling a whole host of other feelings. Those are feelings I will likely keep to myself and a few friends because reasons.
So that’s what’s going on.
I might schedule up some posts here because I have ANOTHER thing. In a few short days, I’ll make my triumphant return to personal blogging.
Come and check it out, subscribe and hold on to your butt.
Now I’m going to dayjob and work on shit.
Grind grind grind grind.
Try to make them extra coins.
And stay calm.
