As it turns out, our e-mail notification system has just… been having a lot of issues, so there’s a chance a bunch of you just haven’t gotten any updates in a looong time! It’s maybe fixed now so hopefully you’re reading this! I pinged every single category so we can reach as many people as we can.
If you’re one of the folks who hasn’t been getting e-mails for a while, stay with me as I brief you because a LOT HAS GONE DOWN. If you’ve been keeping up to date with my shenanigans, feel free to skip this part and scroll down to where I write SHENANIGANS in bold and caps.
Okay! So for those seeing this for the first time, I will be as brief yet as informative as I can. Basically, you haven’t missed much because my work was draining the soul out of me for years. A month ago or so, I sent out a blogpost asking people to help me have reasons not to quit the TEL series, and a bunch of people replied! After that, it was EFNW where I got to see a lot of you, and then I came back and I was all, “Why am I letting my life waste away like this?”
SO I QUIT MY JOB TO BECOME A FREELANCE WRITER!!! My last day was officially Friday, and I am now currently living off writing commissions and the generous support of people on Patreon and Ko-Fi. And that’s mostly the TLDR, though I would suggest reading the previous 3 State of the Monos if you want the full scope of things. I would also advise you browse through the stories just to see if there’s anything new posted you might have missed, be it a new story or an update to one.
Now, on to…
Shenanigans aren’t that much. The main thing I’ve done is re-established my Ko-Fi to have tiers, because as it turns out, Patreon takes a massive cut whereas Ko-Fi makes it so that I get 100% of what y’all are giving me so I’m hoping to make that my main support place!
And that’s mostly it for now. I will probably post a little oneshot set in a friend’s RariTwi AU this week, then I’m taking my one week vacation, and then I’m going to in earnest work on next chapter of TEC.
I’ll be back next week with my little updates.
Aaaand what else? Oh! Just to test if the e-mails are working, please go HERE and put your vote in if you are here because you got an e-mail.
