Who I am.I'm Erica McGillivray. Some of you may know me as a community professional and online marketer; others as a co-founder of GeekGirlCon; and a couple may know me as a writer and pop culture, mostly comic books, critic. I've been writing stories since I could spell my name. Now I'm working on making my writing a bigger priority and focus in my life.
What's Patreon and why am I using this platform?Patreon functions like a subscription to an artist or writer. If you like what I'm doing, you can support me on an on-going basis and get access to exclusive content. Patreon's mission is to support creators.
I initially started using Patreon when laid off. However, since then, I am employed. However, my long-term career goals are to have the ability to focus on my writing and creative contributions, instead of my current career.
(I am also very lucky that my 9-to-5 gig is something I generally enjoy and you won't see my complaining about at large.)
In order to achieve moving myself long-term into writing, I need the finance support of incredible patrons like you. Even $1/month pledges mean the world to me.
