Writer/Patreon Update
 
Last year, I wrote and published close to 90 stories on my site.  I started around March putting out three stories a week.  In September, I cut back to every other week as I started to feel depressed and couldn't keep up with my previous output.  I may, also, have had mild burnout.  In November, I barely made my quota and realized I would not be able to do so in December.  A large factor at that time was how busy my retail job had become during the holidays.  So, I took December off and planned to take January off as well and return to writing in February.

A few days ago I started thinking about revising one of my stories.  And then I restarted putting together an anthology of stories from last year. Also, I took everything I learned in the last year and worked out a plan for the rest of the coming year.  

Starting in February I'm going to be posting two stories a week four times a month to my Patreon.  Non-patreons can read them a week later on my site.  I plan to keep this schedule through December.  Eleven months, eight stories a month is eighty-eight stories.  Because of how irregular months are there will be a few months that will have a skip week and I'm adding a couple of stories to make it a nice round ninety stories.  I'm already planning on writing ahead so I can take a break again in the fall/winter and work on a second anthology of stories to be out early 2018.  Patrons also get copies of the ebooks.

I hope to have the anthology I'm working on right now out around March.

My Patreon is currently on hiatus, since December, until I resume posting in February.  If I keep to my schedule, there will be only one month, January, that I don't post anything.  I'll be asking my Patrons how they would like me to handle that month.
