Daily Thoughts 193: Bouncing Between Tasks

Author's selfieI’ve enjoyed a productive day. A lot of task switching, but I’ve alternated tasks in the house with working on tasks outside. I have a battery-powered string trimmer and I’ve been using it to hack down our overgrown backyard in preparation for a project. When the battery is exhausted I put it back in the charger and work on something else inside. Today that included cleaning out a closet and reorganizing some books (still work to be done).

Patreon Page

Patreon makes it easy for people to get paid by those who enjoy their work, providing a regular monthly income. I’m setting up a new page focused on my Drive-By Stories project. I spent more time today working on the page.

The page is available to preview now. Let me know if you see things that need fixes. I’ve got to work on some graphics for the page and an introduction video. Once that’s done (or close to done), I’ll set a launch date. By then I plan to have more stories up on Drive-By Stories. My initial goal is 100 patrons. Eventually, I’d like to work up to ~1,000 patrons. It’d be terrific to have that many people engaged with these stories.

Daily Thoughts 191: Sharing Economy

Author's selfieI’m setting up ways for interested readers to support releasing my creations under the CC BY SA┬álicense. Right now my focus has been on getting Drive-By Stories set up and with writing new stories. I’m planning to set up a few different options for people to support my work. Buying copies will remain an option. Even if the story or book is available for free, sometimes it’s worth paying for the convenience or for a physical copy. Or access to additional material.

Patreon

I’ve used Patreon before without result. I’d like to think that I’ve learned some things since that first attempt. I’m redoing my Patreon page with that in mind and with the focus on Drive-By Stories. It doesn’t take all that many supporters to make a big difference. I’d love to see more people reading the stories and interacting. I guess we’ll see! I’ll post more once the site goes live.
