Thanks to Patreon support, I'm able to spend time every month writing poetry and developing a new fiction project. I've been able to invest more time in making videos as well. Thank you. It's been a really validating process, and has stopped me from sliding into despair and giving up on creative work.

For years now I've been blogging every day at www.druidlife.wordpress.com - something I do for love. I'm the author of graphic novel series Hopeless Maine, and over at www.hopelessmaine.com Tom Brown and I are building a creative community to let people play and experiment in the world of Hopeless. I've got an urban fantasy novel going up as audio episodes at bandcamp - you can listen for free on the site. https://nimuebrown.bandcamp.com/

I've written books, and dabble in all kinds of creative things. I've had modest success being published, but honestly, the industry is not healthy at the moment, and like most creative people, i struggle. I know there are plenty of people who like what I do, but up until now there's been no good space in which I could make that work for all of us. If you've been with me on this journey, I thank you. I can't write without people to write for.

I write poetry, flash fiction, short stories, novels, graphic novels as well as non-fiction. I sometimes write songs and chants, I'm a crafter, and a dabbler and a performer. I get bored easily so I can't keep churning out the same things. I'm interested in all kinds of speculative fiction, disinclined to sit in a genre, and perfectly aware that these are not things that publishers are keen to hear from writers. this is exactloy what not to do if you want to be easy to market. I'm also tired of this mad situation where poetry and short fiction are pretty much considered unpublishable. So, time to do something different...

I'm not going to create lots of levels for people, partly because I don't want access to what I make being dependent on being able to throw lots of money my way. So my goals are going to be about putting more in the mix for everyone, as I can afford the time to do more. I see it as being more like putting the hat out when busking than seeking  a few wealthy sponsors.

Goals
$127 of $150 per month
I want to get so that I'm reliably making at least one video every month, recording songs I've written, exploring performance poetry - I've got ideas but I need the time to develop them.
