Who am I?
My name is Christina Hufford, and I run Happy-Writer.com, a blog for advice, inspiration, and motivation for anyone who's ever wanted to pick up a pen (or scrape the crumbs off a keyboard) and write a story. I'm also trying to write and publish novels and short stories of my own, all the while pursuing a Certificate in Writing from the University of Iowa.
Writing can be isolating work full of rejection, and it can be really difficult to maintain a happy, positive outlook. That's where this Patreon comes into play! I wanted a way to keep myself motivated and accountable. By becoming a supporter, you'll be a little whisper in my ear telling me that my writing is worth my time, that people do want to read it, and that it will get out into the world someday, somehow, someway.
So, what does this mean?
If you would like to support my writing, consider becoming a Patron! I'll be posting monthly updates to hold myself accountable, where I'll talk about my WIPs, sneak glimpses of future Happy-Writer blog posts, share snippets of my writing, and maybe even post a few stories!
Supporting is totally optional -- my blog posts on Happy-Writer will always be free and available to all, and my writing, when it is published, will be accessible to everyone. Still, if you feel like throwing a buck my way a month, if you feel like being part of the wind beneath my wings, if you feel like showing a writer out there in the world that the words she bangs out on the keyboard are words worth reading, that would be endlessly awesome of you.
To everyone who donates, thank you so much! You're the ink to my pen, the notes to my notebooks, to pages to my book. In short, thanks. <3
