I love writing. I've been writing on tumblr as theunitofcaring and lintamande; I'm lintamande on Archive of Our Own too, and I contribute to effective altruist forums under my real name.

I have been inconveniently sick for the last while, and I'm better now but not better enough to blog and create fiction while working a real job full-time. If you happen to be a person who has enough money for everything you need and you'd prefer I write more and work less, then this page is here so you can accomplish that.

If you don't have enough money for everything you need, please don't give me any. If you want to achieve the most good in the world, there is not an adequate evidence base to conclude that giving me money does that. But if you have money to spare for nice things, I'd like to produce nice things, and sponsors will help me do that.

I think you're a pretty excellent human being! (In the interests of full disclosure, I also think this about people who don't give me any money.) You get access to my Patreon feed of thoughts-not-worth-blogging, works-in-progress, notes, drafts, and project ideas.

Every person at this tier gets to request a blog post or short fiction piece of your choosing every month, or gets an hour of my time to talk with you about your projects, edit your work, write a review of something you did, or things in that vein (if you are willing to come to a coffee shop near me we can meet in person.)

I mean, I honestly can't think why anyone would give me this much money? You can have six hours of my time every month for advice or editing or blogging or autographing your books and your napkins and your cat or - I really can't think why anyone would give me this much money? If people want to give me this much money we can talk about what a cool rewards tier should look like.
Goals

I can quit my day job and do nothing but write, all the time! Don't help me get here unless you want a lot more of my blogging in your life because I will be very hard to shut up.
