They always say that it is never too late to chase after your dreams. Well, one of my dreams since about the fourth grade has been to be a paid and published author, to see a book of mine on the shelves at the local bookstore, with my name on it.  But writing takes time, it takes a lot of blood, sweat and tears, and the occasional mental self-check of, "Is this all worth it?" And my answer has always been a resounding, "Yes!" So I have been writing, plugging away at my dream, hoping to see myself published under my pen name of J. J. Roberson. 

But with having to work a full-time job where I could be put on call at any moment means that I can't spend as much time on my writing as I would like, because I need the income from my job. I am a single woman who is a proper servant to two very loving and playful cats, and seeing as they can't fill out a job application or provide birth certificates to prove they are of legal age to hold paying jobs of their own, my income is the only income that comes to our happy household.  And trying to find ways to meet the bills and keep the roof over our head is extremely stressful at times, which ends up taking away valuable time from both the chain maille jewelry business I am trying to build, and from my writing career that I hope to launch with the sale of my first novel once it is completed. 

"Dream big or go home," I believe is the saying. So I am dreaming big, because this dream has been with me since childhood, and I have several stories I want to tell. Will you help me tell them? I sincerely hope so.

Goals
$0 of $500 per month
I am currently working on four novels, all either science fiction or fantasy based. There is one of the novels that is further along than the rest, currently titled "Haven Full Of Stars", that I hope to have finished and ready to shop around to publishers or possibly self-publish by the end of the year under the name J. J. Roberson. Every month my pledge goal is met, I will be releasing a new chapter of the novel so that my donors can see the progress, get an early look at the novel as it is being born. Monies raised will aid with the meeting of monthly bills, upgrading my computer to ensure that I will still have a working computer to write on, upgrading my word processing software to make the writing and formatting easier, and will also help in the costs of sending my work out for sale, or going the self-publishing route.
