    State of the Mono 3 – Planning???

    Hi everyone!

    This blog serves two purposes: one, testing out our new e-mail system because apparently a lot of folks haven’t been getting e-mail notifications (if that’s you, then I would advise you check to see if you read the last two blogs because Stuff Has Gone Down Very Fast). The second purpose is just?? keeping you updated!

    Anyway, I put in my two week’s notice today so starting on the 16th, I will officially be a Freelance WriterTM. It is obviously very terrifying, especially going from a steady paycheck to not that, but I’m fairly confident I needed to do this, and I have faith I’ll figure it out. I’m going to take a two week vacation to just… rest? I guess? Actually sleep for once? Not be stressed? and starting October, I will begin hustling.

    October will be dedicated to updating TEC and Sapphire, as well as doing several writing commissions I’ve taken on to help with my finances. I also want to figure out new things I can do for my Patreon, especially considering it will now be my only steadish income.

    I also need to figure out my applications for Grad School, because that’s coming up soon. One of my goals is to also original-i-fy Crimson, so we’ll see how that goes. And I think that is? Mostly it for now?

    So yeah!! Things are looking very exciting!

    Thanks as always for your support and reading!!

    – Mono

      I didn’t get an email about this, and had to refollow a bunch of things. I personally suspect I know why, but it’s annoying nonetheless. That said, I’m rooting for you.

      Good luck with all this. I get that mix of terrified and excited feelings with major changes that I chose to make but I like the adrenaline. Stress that doesn’t move you forward is good to lose and a reason to consider change. Especially when it messes with your wellness. Glad you’ll be free of some of that stress in the future. Hope grad school applications go well. Get a PhD. I want to call you Doctor.

      I received this email! I don’t know if I wasn’t receiving emails before, because I only just recently subscribed to email alerts, but I definitely did get this one.

      Interesting, what would be Rares and Twi’s original names?

        Currently thinking of Eleanor for Rarity and Sophie for Twilight

          Sophie feels right for Twilight, good pick! Eleanor, I think, I would have to get used to. Rarity is just so… Rarity, if that makes sense?

          I don’t know anyone named Eleanor, so I thought that was an odd pick/older name but I learned it’s like 30th most popular name in the US, very cool. I really also like Sophie.
