I am a 25-year-old who originates from a midwest state that is commonly associated with The Wizard of Oz. Almost a year ago I quit my full-time career in advertising to pursue a life in writing. It has been a dream of mine since the age of 8 (or maybe even younger) to be an Author. While that dream has now changed to simply writing what I love, I still have a passion for creating stories others would like to read.

I started  The Graceful Klutz around 7 months ago, a lifestyle blog where I share articles about health, relationships, beauty, fashion, travel (well anything pertaining to lifestyle). Whether I make money or not I have finally found something that I truly love doing every single day. I wanted to create a Patreon to help expand my horizons. While I fully enjoy real-world pieces that can help others gain knowledge and understanding, my true love is fictional works of art as well as poetry.

My goal is to finish my first novel and get it published in some way or another by next year and find a way to make my love of the written word morph into a full-time career. At the end of the day, I just want to create pieces that readers (like yourself) will enjoy and remember to have fun in the process. That being said, I would also love to be able to do this full time without the need for small part-time positions to help pay the bills.

What would I do with the money from Patreon?
While I love the idea of being a starving artist I don't truly want to starve. The money from Patreon can help me:
  • Pay for bills and food (the necessities)
  • Spend more time writing and creating quality content
  • Pay for advertising for my website to expand readership
  • Help finish and publish my novel
  • Go towards The Graceful Klutz website to pay for better hosting and layout

For me, writing isn't just a career I want to profit from. Writing (and reading for that matter) has always been a form of friendship I have kept close to my heart since a child. I found friends and homes in books growing up and always wanted to create that for someone else. Written words can literally build cities and change minds. It can motivate leaders and help a child explore different worlds. If I could inspire or entertain even one person than all of the hours spent writing will be worth it. I thank you, whoever you are, for taking the time to read what I have said and for supporting me on my journey to creating a world around me with words.

If you are unable to afford a monthly subscription but still want to support my work I will leave a link for a one-time contribution. Again, all your support is greatly appreciated!

Really, this is too much love. I do not expect anybody to give me this type of support. Again, everything I write is 100% public for you to read. If you are crazy enough to give me this type of support monthly I will give you a little care package in the mail that includes a t-shirt with my logo design.

Not only would I feel so much love if I reach 250 patrons but it would give me an opportunity to spend more time creating amazing content for you to absorb.
