Hello there! My name is Max, also known as M. Kirin. I'm a novelist and for the last five years I've been running a writing advice channel on YouTube (youtube.com/mistrekirin)!
I started this journey because I found that a lot of the writing advice going around was focused on negativity, and I knew things didn't have to be like that. I sought to create a place where anyone, regardless of their experience or writing goals, could find advice and inspiration.
The goal of my videos is not to give you the 'hard' rules to succeed. I am here merely just to show you a different point of view. The way I do things. My process, and my struggles. We're all writers in a craft where no one becomes master. And in this journey, I am learning too.
If you would like a glimpse into how I give advice I recommend the video below, where I go step-by-step through my method for planning a novel!
Of course the channel is not all there's to me! I am an independent author as well. The ongoing support of my Patrons has allowed me to publish several books over the last couple of years where otherwise there wouldn't have been. The books I have published are all because of my amazing Patrons.
Why Patreon? The things that bring me the most joy in life are telling stories and inspiring those around me. Patreon allows me a little more breathing room to not worry about rent and bills, and instead focus on what I care about the most. And, in turn, give you more of what you love.
More books. More videos. More advice. More of everything!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. Regardless of whether you pledge or not I want to thank you, and I hope that you have a lovely day no matter where you are. ♥︎
