At least once a month, I'll ask you for some type of input, usually a word or short phrase. I'll use your input in something I make, though not necessarily in the way you're expecting me to. Feel free to pick something strange or challenging.

per month
At least once a month, pick a topic: a project of your own that you'd like my input about, or something that I've made, or a general aspect of my creative process. We'll talk about it for a while one-on-one via text, voice, or video chat. (I reserve the right to limit topics and duration. This reward is intended for creative or technical topics, not personal ones.)

About Patrick Shaughnessy

Update as of August 2019: Because of commitments I have made to another project, I am no longer confident in maintaining a regular schedule of small works for this Patreon. Potential patrons should be aware of the possibility of long intervals between posts.

I'm Patrick Shaughnessy. I am a writer, musician, and video game designer, among other creative roles. I mostly work in small items, like short poems, chiptune songs, and minigames. I'm posting new works to Patreon every week. These are often writing or music, sometimes video games, and occasionally other media such as videos. At any pledge level, you can look forward to frequent new content.

If my intro video isn't showing you enough about what I do, consider taking a look at my Tumblr blog, The Garden of Okay Ideas. For about a year and a half before starting this Patreon, I posted nearly everything I created there, plus occasional nonfiction articles about my creative process and motivations. I continue to post there, but I'm now reserving some of my best work for Patreon subscribers.

Once 50 people are subscribed to my work on Patreon, I'll start livestreaming elements of my creative process at least once a month, and I'll make archives of those streams available to subscribers.
