Hello writer enthusiasts and friends!

My name is Sean M. Miller, and I am an unpublished but determined and passionate writer. My project includes the documentation of, by a weekly YouTube Vlog, the process and completion of my first YA novel, The Tolfí Expedition, which I have been working on for the past few years.

Also, I am a person living with Bipolar Disorder and PTSD, and additionally experience frequent anxiety related panic attacks. Because of my disorders I find it difficult and sometimes impossible to write regularly and consistently, hold a 9 to 5 or part-time job, and entertain a normal life. As a result I have failed miserably—unable to complete a Master Degree, hold a full or part-time job, and sustain many friendships.

I am tired of the stigma, failing, being depressed, sad, manic, and disappointed...and that is why I am here.This illness should not control my life and destroy my hopes and dreams.Starting today, I would like to share my story with you and hopefully inspire those living with mental illness, and friends and family of, to reach out for assistance, support, and resources, so together we can move past the stigma and reach toward better health and acceptance.

I am embarking on a Grand Adventure, over the next three months my goal is to finish writing and editing my very first YA novel, and once complete self-publish. Each week I will post a Vlog entry to my Youtube Channel, Living Bipolar..., documenting my progress, how the disorders have affected my creativity, writing and video entries that week, along with—information about Bipolar Disorder, PTSD, anxiety related Panic Attacks, and resources, novel suggestions, personal anecdotes, and responses to your posts.

And I need your help. I need you to hold me accountable to this goal. Writing a novel, professional editing, publishing, marketing, and personal expenses add up quickly.

I am, therefore, announcing A Goal!

I would like to see a monthly support level at $2500*. This money will go toward my personal monthly expenses and self-publishing costs (professional editing, cover art, publishing, and marketing).

Thank you for your consideration, support, kind words and suggestions, encouragement, and most of all your company down the long, scary, and strange road I have decided to travel.
