So, as the great Stephen King said, in the Dark Tower series, "Ka is a wheel."
Seems I'm back to the place I was four years ago, wonder if I learned anything? I like to think I have.
Four years ago I was unemployed, and I finally decided to start living my passion, dug down into my writing. Two years ago I ended up with a job that swallowed my life. I have barely been able to write at all. It's disturbing how little time I've had for the thing that makes me happy, that I'm good at. Then this year happens.
In January my grandmother passed, my last living grandparent. It shook me up more than I expected. Two weeks after her funeral, almost to the day, my boss decided to "go in a different direction" with my position. Man, I love that term. I felt relief and terror in equal measure. So, once again I'm at a point where I'm looking to make some changes in my life. Can I do this without ending up in another job that I'm going to end up giving too much time to? I know I'll just end up tired of it again, unless I can find balance.
So, I'm spreading the word to my friends, and artists I know. If you're up to supporting the cause that would be great. If you could spread the word for me that would be amazing too. If you want to do both, I'm okay with that. Below are three amazing links. One to where I sell books, and two Patreon pages. Both of the Patreon pages are up but don't officially launch until March. The first one is a monthly, with limited content, there mostly to be discoverable since if you write dark you have to remove yourself from the search. The second is a per post and will have more actual stories on it. Time to make a hard run at this while I'm forced to look for another day job.
