Announcing a Patreon Exclusive! Into Shadow Coming Feb 2021

Into Shadow | An Exploration of Personal Fears | Poetry

In my newsletter recently, I described how my nightmares and anxiety caused by the violence in our nation’s capital affected my ability to write last week. I announced in that update I’m channeling these emotions to explore my fears in February. I’ll be writing a poem a day for a #28DaysofPoetry challenge.

This month-long project will be offered to my patreons through Patreon for $2. Yep, that’s right. $2 for 28 poems about my personal fears.

Why charge so little? Since launching my Patreon, I don’t feel I’ve done a very good job helping patrons feel vested in my work. Last year, my patrons helped fund a new web cam–something I desperately needed during the pandemic and am hugely grateful for. I’m hoping that the $2 price will help reassure patrons that their financial support is greatly valued.

In terms of “What am I going to do with this?” The answer is: “I don’t know.” This idea is new, raw, and will be a journey. It’s been a long, long time since I’ve written or studied poetry, and I’m not sure if any publishers would be interested in this type of collection. What’s more, now that I’ve been practicing mini-art pieces for #makedontbreak, my creative mind might shift to illustrating these too. I just don’t know.

I hope you’ll consider joining this project. If you are already a patron, please accept my enduring gratitude. I look forward to sharing my fears with you.

Where You Can Keep Up With Me for #MakeDontBreak

Hiya,

I am participating in the #makedontbreak challenge for January 2021! Now that I’m about a week into the challenge, I wanted to give you an update where you can follow along for updates and support my art.

  • Ko-Fi.com – You can find all the art I make this month in my gallery on Ko-Fi.com. You can also help offset the cost of art supplies by buying me a coffee.
  • BooksOfM on Deviant Art – I’ve set up a separate gallery for this challenge on Deviant Art. Here, I’m also adding new and original jewelry designs.

I’m also posting a daily image on Instagram and (with any luck) those will also post to Twitter. Besides these places, I’m publishing a few updates in my newsletter and through my Patreon that’ll include a tutorial.

Hope you’re also having fun making art this month! There’s still time to join or check out the hashtag #makedontbreak on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. Yay!
