What do you get when you combine an Onion, and a Sunflower? Why a Social Justice Garden ready to Splain You a Thing or two, of course. Ok, not the best joke, but even for a writer, coming up with what to say in these types of things can be a little hard to start. 

This Patreon is for both Ania Onion Bula, one of the two main contributors to Splain You a Thing blog on The Orbit. It is also for the blog itself, helping to cover any special extra costs, etc. 

Since this patreon has existed for a while, and also represents the overall blog itself, and in an effort to make sure all the writers are fairly compensated for their work, we may post Guest Posts as paid posts. In addition, until Sunflower Punk can raise a better following of their own, their posts will also be listed here.  For more information, read here.

Thank you so much to all of our Patrons and Fans. Your donation helps disabled people in both Canada and the US get their meds, and survive another month. It also helps us get more writing done. 

Ania is the multiply disabled published author of Young, Sick, and Invisible. She also writes fantasy, sci-fi, and speculative fiction, and is currently working on editing her most recent story Hunting Blackbirds, for publication. Her works of fiction are made available to Patrons, both completed stories and chapters from new works as they are being written. 

She lives with her dog CJ, and her four quail hens. She also lives with her relatives after the realities of being on disability priced her out of independence. She is working hard to be able to find her freedom again, a little plot of land perhaps where she can live together with her partner and a few hens. 

One of her greatest desires is to create a community of disabled artists of different types who all live together and support each other. Jokingly referring to it as her techno-hippie commune, she envisions a space where she and several like-minded friends each have their own spaces, but also share resources like energy, skills, money, etc. to make life easier for all of them. In addition they could share studio space and help keep each other motivated. For her own part, she is also excited about being able to build her own smoke house, green house, and maybe even a bake house, where she could really expand her various culinary creations. 
Currently Ania lives on Ontario Disability Support, which is not enough to live on, and most especially not enough to guarantee regular access to her medication. She supplements her income (with full knowledge of the disability program) with her writing, selling her art, as well as teaching on skillshare and youtube, taking on odd jobs here and there. In addition, she usually finds herself having to crowdfund to cover incidental costs as well as the pain medication that is not covered by disability. She dreams of a time when she will no longer have to beg for money online. 

Moving to a new city, trying to rebuild her life after separating from a common law partner of 7 years.
