Hello, friends. It's me, Nico. You may know me from such hits as that poem about terraforming Mars with the power of gay sex, or the only known crossover between The Mindy Project and Godzilla, or perhaps even some actually quite serious fiction. This morning I drafted a new sonnet, and this afternoon I'm working on a funky little YA novella, because it turns out there's nothing I can read without my arrogant Leo ass saying, pftt, I could do that.

And doesn't that kinda make you want to, you know, take me down a peg or two? Not a serious unpegging, just an all-in-good-fun, affectionate sort of roughing up between close, trusting friends. I'm talking, obviously, about you setting monthly writing challenges for me. 

Here's what we're going to do:

Once a month, I'll post a poll with three challenge options. For example: 1) Queer noir flash fiction 2) Specifically Filipino-American Limericks 3) Horror based on a Carly Rae Jepsen song. (See, I'm already over here thinking, pfft, I could do those which is only very arguably true. Especially the limericks.) 

When a winner is determined, I'll write the thing. Because writing is painful and difficult for me, I will also complain about the thing and try to write the thing and fail at it a couple times, which will be documented in a blog post for your amusement. 

After the thing is written, I will post the thing! Then we'll do it all over again.

Goals
$59 of $100 per month
Nico has Extremely Niche Takes. When we reach $100/month, I'll add a monthly review post available at every reward tier! Get ready to dive deep into a single issue of Justice League International, or one particular episode of Space: Above and Beyond, or, inevitably, an Animorphs book or ten.
