Fall is here, and with it, a lot of changes have been coming. I’ve been waiting until I got a bit further settled into my new schedule and life before making any large decisions, but I’ve decided that, due to a number of different factors, I am going to be scaling back my writing somewhat for the foreseeable future.
Some of these reasons are personal, some of them are creative, and some of them are practical. With my schedule at the moment, I simply don’t have the time to produce all the content I need for this site, for my Patrons, for my upper tier commissioners, and myself. I would say that 80 to 90 percent of the writing I have produced over the last year has been either commissions for others, or based off of people’s requests–I have a massive backlog of my own ideas that I simply don’t know when I will be able to get them out, if I continue along with my current workload. Much of what I want to produce aren’t even traditional stories at the moment–I’ve been working on some erotic role playing games, interactive stories, and other odd things like that, but I haven’t had the time to really dedicate to them the energy I would like. And finally, with my husband’s new job, we have a much more comfortable income at the moment, and so I can scale back the need to generate income, and focus more on my writing, which was the point of all of this to begin with.
For most people, nothing will change. None of the bottom three tiers on my Patreon are going away, none of their perks are going away, and for those of you with regular commissions I have already been in touch with all of you on how I hope this transition will work. Starting next month, I will be revamping the tiers somewhat to incorporate some of my new interests, especially on the RP side of things, so if that’s something you are interested in, I’ll have more details about that soon. I will also probably reconsider my goals, and have some new targets and things that I would like to target in the future.
With this drop in income, my Patron will almost certainly drop back down below the $700 dollar level, meaning I will go back to posting content only five days a week, from Monday to Friday, starting next week. As always, thank you for all of your support and for reading my strange stories over the last decade (goodness, more than a decade really, more like 11 years) and I look forward to providing you all with many more stories to come. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot me a message, and I’ll get them answered.
