April showers bring May . . . Gryfons, of course!
So friends, here's the scoop. I have finished shipping off the last of the goodies from my 2016 Kickstarter, so I have actual time to dedicate to my projects, in a more organized manner.
April poll results showed excitement for the size comparison chart, including some gryfon terminology and so on, so expect that to be done early (okay, maybe slightly later) next week.
Those waiting on your trading cards from March, never fear, they will ship soon (apologies for the delay!) along with the goodies for those who pledged at the $25 level in April.
Changes for May
1. Chat Format Changing to Q&A Post until I Find An Acceptable Format
Just as it says: I'm working on finding a chat format that works both with my outdated computer and software, and is workable for all patrons (or as many as possible, at least). My ideal would be Discord since it's already linked to Patreon, but I have to check if there's a laptop somewhere I can borrow that will actually run the software. I'll keep you posted.
2. Daily Postings! More Content!
My plan is to stick to a daily posting schedule for patrons, so you get lots of fun stuff and I have some small attempt at organization... With that in mind, here's my idea for a posting schedule (this will include your polls and the Flight, whatever that may be). I'm also open to ideas :D
Monday: Goals/Dear Diary Monday. A glimpse into my plans and goals for the week, progress, and what I'm working on story-wise.
Tuesday: Character Inspirations & Teasers! Continuing the posts on my inspirations for characters from The Summer King Chronicles, as well as sneak peaks, sketches, and so on, both of existing characters and upcoming ones.
Wednesday: Writing Wednesday. this will be a post with tips for writers.
Thursday: Pup-day. You get a photo or video of Sparks because he is wonderful and brings happiness wherever he roams.
Friday: Gryfon Pride Day! A post where I encourage patrons to brag in the comments about their current projects, tell us about great books they're reading or movies they've seen, and advertise artwork or books that might be of interest to the Pride. These will be Patron-only posts, to discourage spamming shenanigans from outsiders, but you are welcome to speak on behalf of someone who maybe can't pledge at this time, as long as the content is appropriate. Plug your Kickstarters, book releases, commission slots, long jump score, or any other thing you're excited about.
Saturday: Gryfon Trivia. I'll post a factoid or quote from the books, and you figure out the answer, or who said it, or what-have-you.
Sunday: One Sunday a month will be the Q&A Day, which will transition into Chat Day once I find a program!
