A thanks, a plan, and a question
 
First off, thank you so much for another month of financial security! You continue to make it possible for me to do what I do. This month I'm focusing a lot on my writing, so I think I'll be sharing some of my poetry with you in the coming days. I'm trying to figure out new ways to keep you in the loop with what your support allows me to do, so I hope you enjoy whatever comes down the pipe this month!

In other news, I've just had a meeting recently about hiring some help to get these $10 and $20 tier perks done. Patreon's organizational system of patrons is a bit overwhelming for trying to keep track of perk rewards and lists of what's been fulfilled, and I've finally realized I need help to get started with tracking that or I will always been far to overwhelmed to begin, so I'm very pleased about that.

And lastly, the question: 

Why did you become a patron?

I saw someone I support (Chris Ryniak) ask this question today, and I realized I wanted to ask you the same thing myself. As he said in his post, there is no right or wrong answer, I'm simply curious and would like to understand what got people to actually click that support button. If there are lots of reasons, feel free to tell me all of them, or just focus on the one that actually pushed you into signing up by typing it out below in the comment section.

GOODNIGHT MY LOVES I'M OFF TO WRITE <33
