Hey y’all, hope everyone is well out there. First off thanks for the support especially those who stayed around through the ups and downs of end of May/beginning of June. Support was close to $1200 a month, then dipped dramatically after signal boosting some other folks, which I can’t control but it’s really saddening to have support yanked from me for merely linking to others work.
So what have I been up to? Too much actually 🙁
March, April and May were pretty non-stop including PAX East, Penguicon, Wiscon, a local Star Trek pop culture conference, speaking at a class at my alma mater along with Jenn C, paneling at the Science Fiction Writers Association (SFWA) conference in Chicago and the Chicago Video Game Law Summit; also in Chicago.
Thankfully June is much quieter, with just CONVergence at the end of the month, and Podcast Movement at the first weekend of July and I’m pretty much done with conventions until PAX Prime in September, Praise Andraste.
There’s been other stuff going on, least of which is some severe burnout, thus the slowing to a crawl progress on a lot of things I’m doing. I put out a call for help on the #INeedDiverseGames side and have gotten some offers which I need to reply to this week.
ICYMI, one article I did put up here and eventually out in the gen population of my social media is So You Want to Describe a POC Character?
So what’s coming in June on here in terms of writing and such? Not sure actually, I’ve been really struggling with that lately even when given a topic. I’m working on a paid piece so that’s taking my focus a bit. I’m trying to do more original video content, but that’s a steeper learning curve than I expected 🙁
So if you’re supporting at the $10 level and above, drop requests below and now that I am not so omgwtf I just need ten naps busy I should be able to write something if not by the end of June, then definitely in July.
So that’s what’s up with me and life right now. To be frank, I’m burned out at both ends but I’m muddling through and without everyone’s support I couldn’t keep a roof over my head for the last six months. So thank you, thank you for your continued support.
It means the world to me and is literally keeping me safe, dry and housed.
