Problem is there seems to be no way to do pay-what-you-want. So I set up a minimum payment of $5 and then threw in any increments that sounded like people might be interested in them. If you want to sponsor me like $8.67 per month, I dunno, we gotta work that out separately. Or if you want to go over $50/month, though I find that unlikely? (Yeah, I aimed big with that last one; you never know.) Also if you are interested in sponsoring me in a lump sum, my PayPal address is shadesong AT gmail.com.
Analysis of that poll: Most people basically just want to sponsor me to Do Creative Stuff. That's followed up by work on the novels, with others expressing interest in the DV essays and chapbook and the book about dismantling rape culture. People who want me to be writing poetry and short fiction all also wanted me to be doing a bunch of other stuff too. That can totally happen. Knowledge is power!
So what this means is me structuring my day to do fiction writing in the morning, because that's when my fictionbrain works best, and nonfiction after lunch.
Treating this like a job will help me.
