What I've Been Up To Instead of Writing That Horror Serial

Since the last time I posted on my blog, the serial project has fallen through. I am repurposing some of it for a new project, a short piece of interactive fiction, the main purpose of which is for me to learn Twine and the secondary purpose of which is to scare the crap out of people. Because its a scary story, and also metafictional. But even that is in the very begining stages of planning and plotting.

However, that doesn’t mean that I’ve sat idle. I compiled a poetry chapbook and submitted a query for it to a publisher. They did not accept it, but having a completed draft of a chapbook is a tremendous accomplisment given how I’ve struggled to write. And its one I can turn back to whenever I get bogged down in depression about how “I never write things anymore.”

Since the chapbook is in fact finished, I am going to turn it into an ebook and sell it on itch.io. I will post a link on here when the book is published. My hope is that I can use funds from the sale of the book to become more financially independent and able to physically transition (hormones aren’t cheap). I’m also opening commissions on my ko-fi page as well as adding some membership and discord benefits. Donate $3 a month (USD) for an exclusive poem every month and $5 to join a ttrpg club (slots are limited on that one).

I know that I haven’t posted a lot, but I sincerely hope you will consider supporting me as work towards making my dream of being a published write a reality. I would really appreciate it.
