First of all, a hearty thank you to my great patrons!
Up to now, I've had some very good people pledging money to me each month; they have been helping me through a very dark time, in so many ways.
I am sure every person who reads my work, and who enjoys it, will fasten on something different.
For some, it will be my beautiful poetry.
Or my evocative and profound (I hope!) spiritual meditations.
For others, it will be my ruthlessly Swiftian satire.
For yet others, it will be my detailed philosophy and ideology critique.
Many will disagree with some of my ideas, or find a particular satire story distasteful, or a particular poem contrived or artificial.
Even so, there is so much to explore here, that I hope none of you will ever get bored.
I am deeply, deeply appreciative to all my patrons, as well as to all those who have commented, given feedback, liked and followed me on social media, or shared my work.
Special thank you also to those who have bought my books; these creations of mine are very precious to me. As I know I will never be married, I like to think of my books are my children; long after I am gone, something of what I have created will still remain after me.
And that is a great source of comfort.
Be free, be courageous, and be loved.

Goals
$50 of $80 per month
Once I have reached $80, I will begin serialising my edgy satire novel: 'Rainbow Jez An' Me Man 2 Man Movement!' This anarchic Swiftian satire fest (not without its more poignant moments) pokes fun at Northern England's rising stars of the self-styled, self-appointed and sadly self-funded Men's Rights Movement.
But what will this $80 do to help me in this difficult time?
Contribution Towards Living Costs
Depending on the exchange rate, $80 is roughly £60.
This will cover water (£15), phone and internet (£10), non-edible small essentials e.g. washing-up liquid (£5), and even bite a meaty £30 chunk out of my food costs!
