Obviously I don’t do this for the money, or I wouldn’t be making my work availible for free. What I write, I write because I feel it needs to be written (with regards to commentary and academic pieces), and because I love writing it (with regards to fiction and literature). This is a passion and a hobby for me.
That said, money is always an issue. I’m a student with all that that entails: the long hours spent on projects and assignments, studying for tests and exams, preparing for and attending classes, as well as several other extra-curricular responsibilities. My daily life costs money, which I have to fill in for with work and other jobs. Jobs, that take up my time, time which I could have been (and would much rather be) spending on writing – whether that be my commentary pieces, or my literature.
So if you really love my work, and would like to enable me to spend more time on producing more, and better, articles, chapters and other stuff for you to enjoy – which I assume you do, considering that you’ve come looking for a way to have me do just that – please consider helping me out by supporting me.
You can either do so by becoming my patron (specifically for Shadow’s Reach – my current fiction project), or by donating through PayPal.
Thank you so much for wanting to support me, and I hope that you continue to enjoy the content I write.
