blah - flags. So many flags.

Basically, I'm combining my two hats here, management stuff and writing with my new golden rule about working and writing:

Earn as much as you can per hour; work as few hours as you need to.

I think the future for doing more of this is good.

Interesting, Jo.

Sometimes I consider Patreon as the idea of regular money, even if it's low (certainly to start with) is appealing given the time it takes to write and publish stuff. I really like the named character bonus ($10 level). Is that just for a single month, though, or a certain number of months at that tier, or if you are at that level when the call goes out for potential names?

Edited extra bit: something I heard suggested from the Patreon people is to ask your patrons the sort of bonuses they want. Might be a good way to get suggestions.

I thought the named character would be a one off thing - I might need to make that clearer. :) it is something I will move to the higher tier if it gets popular and swamped - whilst honouring those who signed up at the middle tier of course

Once I get any patrons I will ask what they want, for sure. :)

It is a slow build I’m told and if nothing comes of it I won’t be worried :)

Ha, Peat, that reminds me of the Daily Mash (back when I read it) writing about Narnia's football team. They were all rubbish except for Aslan, who's a giant, magic, talking lion who is also Jesus.
Narnia's just not really overflowing with athletic talent when you come down to it.
