I have always wanted to write professionally. Were it up to me, I would spend every day in front of a keyboard, typing my heart out and pouring every inch of my soul onto the page before editing the crap out of it so that it is at least remotely presentable. Writing is my passion, and I would love to do nothing but write. Unfortunately, I have yet to be able to make this happen.
I do have what most people would call a real job. In fact, I have two of them! Unfortunately, neither pays much above the state minimum wage, nor do they give me a lot of hours. I'm lucky if I hot a combine total of twenty hours a week. So, to supplement my income, I am asking you, my dear reader, if you feel so inclined, to leave me a tip on Ko-Fi.
Ko-Fi is a service that acts as a front end for PayPal and Stripe, and allows patrons to leave tips for their favorite creators. Usually this is a one-time tip, but I have invested in a Gold account, so if you want, you can leave a recurring monthly donation. And if you choose to do either, you will receive exclusive content that only supporters of the blog will have access to.
Poetry has long been one of my favorite things to write, and if you leave a one-time donation you will have access to supporter-only poems. I will try to post a new poem at least once a month, so check back regularly for new updates. This does not mean that I will never post a poem to the blog, but rather that there will be poems i post to Ko-Fi before posting them anywhere else. If poetry is your thing, consider leaving a donation and taking a gander at my writing.
If fiction and tarot are more your cup of tea, you will want to subscribe on a monthly basis, as i will also be posting Tarot Tales: flash fiction based on a four-card tarot draw. The first card determines the protagonist, the second the central conflict or problem related to the story, the third presents the action the protagonist takes to try and resolve that conflict, and the fourth card is the outcome of their action. It's a good way to practice divination while also honing my writing skills. Again, the intent will be to post these at least once a month, so keep your eyes peeled for notifications and updates.
The first two posts, one poem and one tarot tale, are live on my Ko-Fi page right now. Please consider checking them out and leaving a donation. Also, please consider following me on my new twitter account for updates and shenanigans. Any way you can support this blog is greatly appreciated. Thank you all so much. I'll get into more magic posting later this week.
