Patreon this Month: Finish It

My friends!

The theme this month for my Patreon is “Finish It!”

Which means, if you have wanted me to finish something, if you want me to write more about things, if you think I have too many cliffhangers, if you’ve been thinking about sending me a couple bucks in my tip jar,

now is a great month to join my Patreon at the $5 (prompt-me, “To-Do List”) level.

Yes, even if you only want to join for a month.  I won’t tell anyone 😉 That’s still $5 (less fees) for me!

Bonus:  If you join and prompt, I will write to one of your prompts, even if I’ve already written the 4 stories for that month.

Yes, it’s a loophole to get me to write even more finishes (or semi-finishes, let’s be honest).  But to do that – you gotta Patronize (the capital P is important in this case; if you lower-case patronize me I don’t write nothing) me and you have to prompt (on the “Prompt Call” post, please).

Livewriting Recap and More

Happy New Year!

Yesterday, I spent from about 8 to about 10 writing, adding in a little more after that and wrapping up just in time to kiss my husband, feed the cats, and go to sleep in 2020.

I wrote a total of 14,026 words yesterday.  Not only did I beat my 2018 Livewriting total (10,000) (in 2017: 7519), I blew it out of the water.

I’m pretty happy with that! I got prompts from new prompters, which makes me even happier (I love getting prompts from my constant people and I love getting prompts from new people, too), prompts from some long-term readers and Patrons, and may have started a new serial.

All in all, in 2019 I wrote 810,016 words, 8% more than in 2018. I finished (yes, some debate on one of those) three blog serials and Edally and… I’m not sure if I started any new settings!

In 2020, I want to focus on the following, in re. writing:

  • Submit at least 1 story every 2 months
  • Get caught up and stay caught up with Patreon (this is mostly non-writing; i.e., maps and chapbooks, right now)
  • Find one more way to promote my writing and keep up with it at least monthly (suggestions?)
  • Clean up and self-pub one novel, pref. 2
  • Finish 1 novel (pref 2), edit, submit for publication
  • Work on improving my Weak Spots of Writing
  • Fun Goal: Beat 2019’s monthly, weekly, daily, and yearly wordcounts.
  • I want to say “get more Patrons” but that’s not in my hands. I can write and talk about my writing and promote it but I can’t manufacture Patrons.

I will try to keep something similar to my recent publishing schedule: stories on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and/or Saturday, one-shots or blog posts slipping in on Tues and/or Thursday.

I have several new series or mini-series either in the works or in consideration right now, so there may be a few weird weeks while I get caught up.

But all in all, I think it will be a good year!

Cheers, and thanks for all your reading and comments in 2019!

Since I like playing on 4thewords, this little bug monster says I need to add a little bit more to this blog post. 

Webpage goals for 2020 include:

  • *find an effective plug-in which lets me:
    •  Automagically crosspost to Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, and maybe Mastodon
    • Automagically crosspost to Dreamwidth and NOT continue to re-crosspost every time I change anything in the post.
  • Finish my Settings Page and my Fae Apoc landing page
  • Start a New Readers Page of some sort which suggests places for, well, new readers to begin
  • Complete the Great Patreon Crossposting and the Tag and Category Clean-up

Livewriting Day

So!

When should I do a livewriting day this year?

(A day where I write most of the day (with breaks) in a GoogleDoc or maybe in Twitch too??, at least in part to your prompts)

Options include:

Thursday 12/26

(less ideal) Sunday 12/29

Monday 12/30

Tuesday 12/31

If you don’t think you’ll prompt or stop in (to the Docs window or if there’s a Twitch feed or if you have some other interesting suggestion for how to write in my cave for all y’all to read it while I write), no real need to chime in, TBH, but the more people who prompt/stop in, the happier I’ll be. 😀

Impromptu Prompt Call

Hello!  Yesterday, in a bid to finish a time-limited quest in 4TheWords1, I asked for prompts on Mastodon2 and Twitter.

And then I posted the first bunch of stories on Ko-Fi as I wrote them.

These are those stories. (Dun-dunn3).

A Light in the Dark – The nights were long and dark and the days were cold and grey.

The Real World – “Stand and Present arms!”

The Two Kings – “There isn’t meant to be a thief king!”

D.F. Claudine Davenport & other authors – “I do have one question.  The fact that you credited your cat as a co-author.  Is this a nod to F. D. C. Willard?  If not-”

Atsidasauron Minimus – Every ship that went into space, every one since the first to leave the solar system, the Virginia of Sagadahoc, had one thing in common: they all carried at least two cats.
