For old Frelling, Patreon is an exercise in discipline. I have many unfinished short stories, an unfinished book and a couple of unfinished screenplays. Delivering a draft short story or a book chapter every two weeks is pushing my focus and productivity. I have no problem editing (and re-editing and re-editing and re-editing...) my work. Pushing the first version of anything onto paper is the challenge.
Write the world you want.
