Who Am I?

I’m one of several “Sarah Beach”s to be found online, at least two of whom are also writers and artists. I had anticipated this years ago, back when the internet was barely wired (and you had to dial in on phone lines to anything), so I created the band name “ScribblerWorks” to distinguish myself and my work. But that doesn’t really tell you much (other than “scribbling” covers both writing and artwork). Even though I have had work in print (mostly literary scholarship) for over 25 years, I knew I needed a nametag that really caught people’s attention.

After I survived the rigors of academic training and won the rewards of a Master’s degree in medieval English literature, I then plunged into the work arena of clerical library work. From there I jumped into Show Business and landed my first job with a little quiz show that kept me employed for 18 years researching and verifying information. That’s answers and questions for you. But eventually even such things end, and my specific position got downsized, casting me out into the world to fend for myself.

I do freelance editing and writing (primarily web content for search engine optimization). But I would much rather be spending my time working on my own creative projects. Which leads to one of the reasons I have come to Patreon.

Why I Am On Patreon

Keeping myself inspired about my own work isn’t always easy when I’m doing bread-and-butter work for clients. Up until now, I haven’t had a regular audience expecting the latest installment of anything. Because I’m one of those people who responds better to external deadlines, the structure of Patreon – especially the monthly subscription form – struck me as being just the motivator I needed. Having a ready and appreciative audience can inspire and encourage me to work more diligently on my own creative projects. Gaining patronage can lower the need for bread-and-butter jobs, and allow me to complete the wide variety of projects I long to share with the world.

Your patronage will give you advanced access to what I am working on. Indeed, at a key level, you will be given PDFs of draft chapters of works-in-progress. At higher levels of patronage, you are invited to offer suggestions for certain aspects of work, and even receive discounts on services I generally offer to the public. 

Although most of my work is literary, I will from time to time include art projects as time, space, and materials allow. Just as with the literary work, you’ll get behind the scenes looks at the creative process, and first chance options if I put any work up for sale. In the future, I hope I’ll even be able to take on the occasional artwork commission.

I will be thrilled to see every Patron that comes on board. Active encouragement of my efforts is nourishment to my creative energy. You have my deep felt thanks.
