A day off (to work)
Today is my first Patreon day. As I have stated, the funds I pull in via Patreon are not happy-fun-time let's-get-some-candy money. They are earmarked specifically to allow me to take time off from my workplace so that I can get more work done to improve Leftover Soup. Now, I haven't been able to use them for that for a while. In the middle of July, I was moved from one department to another, so I had to go through a training and probationary period that ended on August thirtieth. Today is my first regular day on my new regular schedule, and thus it is the first day I could give up a shift. As of right now, my Patreon seems to be at equilibrium - it wavers up and down as people adjust their pledges, but it seems to be more or less stable around $300. A shift at work nets me, on average, around a hundred dollars, so that means I can give up three shifts in a month. (I'm doing six this month, since I couldn't take advantage of it in August.) This is not vacation time. As far as I'm concerned, you guys have paid me for a shift's-worth of cartooning work, so I intend to put in at least eight hours for you. I won't give you the entirety of my schedule or my methodology - I imagine you don't particularly care - but at the end of every Patreon day I take, I will be posting a progress report, listing off everything I have accomplished on that day. You're paying me, I intend to be accountable. Once again, I'd like to thank each and every one of you for making this possible. Leftover Soup is a big part of my life and a big part of who I am - I'd do it even if it never made me a dime - but it means a lot to me whenever someone likes what I do enough to help me keep doing it. Thank you all so much. Now, if you'll excuse me, I've got cartooning to do.
