Patreon vs. Learning to Read - A Trifecta.

Sticky co-shenanigation by @but_I_tigress on Twitter
I'm sinking in Blursday, y'all. I want to make the best use of my unemployed time; at the moment a lot of that is deprogramming from the last day job. I will be fresh and malleable by the time I find a new gig. I'm also trying to re-structure (because o-r-g-a-n-i-z-e is a scary word) the "projects" I hope will segue into respectable work: editing, painting, sculpting, writing poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. I've got a really big plate.

Patreon is a great way to support artists if, as Diana Gonzalez says, you don't want or are unprepared to purchase their work. Going forward, my Patreon account will be family-friendly and focus on my creative endeavours. All the bullshit will be here

Hey, mom! I'm learning to c-o-m-p-a-r-t-m-e-n-t-a-l-i-z-e. At least that's the direction I'm aiming the mower.

All this juggling means my toggle is broken again; hence the blur. I know that input and output need to be balanced, so I've cleared a space on my plate in which I need to practice the art of reading: not just cruising over the words, but settling in. Digesting the deeper meaning, like the heart of the artichoke...but at the moment, I need to lay down my spear, stop trying to save all the hearts of this world, and remember how I got to here

Look me up. debora Ewing is creating the fairytales we need.

BIG SHOUT-OUT (the biggest available) to @deft_notes - not only is he word-deft as proclaimed, but he's an amazing support system. Thanks, brah. Go do something with that snowstorm.
