I used to charge more than I could afford when I first started writing to coach writers just starting out. Which is kind of like a giant asshole move, and mostly explained why most new writers said things like "Well, I'm new, so I can't afford that." Don't ask me how long it took me to figure out I was doing it wrong, but we're all here now, and now is awesome. Check out my rewards for details on exclusive coaching opportunities for my patrons. 

Note: I'm not a copy-editor. My twitter feed is proof. But I am job-security for those that are. moving on....

I'm a freelance writer with bylines in a lot of Fancy Places and rejections from a lot more Fancy Places. As a trained journalist, I live for deadlines, learning new things, sharing the stories that I think matter to my readers, and get giddy every time I get a new acceptance for work I always pour my heart into. Writing headlines & titles is one of my favorite hobbies and writing pitches that sell the story no longer gives me palpitations. 

Why? I know I can write, but I had to be told by you, my badass patrons, that I am pretty badass at this thing I love to do, and perhaps badass enough for you to talk me into creating a Patreon page where I can over a decade of experience and a lifetime of Always Doing the Thing Wrong first because I hate being predictable.

In any case, I'm here and I am no longer spouting that positivity-guilt bullshit about how you need to invest (what you haven't even made yet) into yourself in order succeed. Let's leave the self-help stuff for the experts. We're here to Write First and Think Later. 

Thank you for supporting my desire to not have to work in Actual Pants. 

Now....let's get to work.

Sometimes, I draw things. Pretty doodly things that may or may not include bad words. My favorite thing to doodle is a 3.5x3.5 write artist tile (not an actual tile, but a square piece of paper that is called a tile because it's art paper and that makes it fancy).

Goals
$3 of $1,000 per month
When I reach $1,000 per month, I can slow down the pitching/writing pace and get to work on the book you've been asking me to write. Ya know...the one about writing? 
I am a full-time, work-at-home, freelancing mom of one homeschool kiddo. With your support, we can make this happen. I will add a fun, new reward level related to the book project after reaching $1,000 per month. Thank you!
