Help Me Make More Stuff For You!
- …dig the free DIY Endeavors Podcast?
- …love my books, music and other creative endeavors?
- …want to see ongoing serials like Hazy Days and Cloudy Nights and Walk Like A Stranger continue?
- …want me to have the freedom to make more stuff, more often?
- …cherish having “inner circle” access?
- …find value in DIY, independent creators?
If even a few of those items resonate with you, I’d love you to become a patron of my work for as little as one dollar per creative work.
Benefits of Patronage
When you become a patron of my creative endeavors, you move beyond being simply a consumer… it’s a declaration of your commitment to my success as an artist and a vote of confidence in my work, and in me.
That’s a remarkable, generous, gesture of trust. I’m inspired to provide as much value in return as I possibly can.
Some of the ways I reward patrons include shout-outs on The DIY Endeavors Podcast, links back to you in the show notes of the podcast and on the Patrons Wall, early access or exclusive outtakes, background material, and other ephemera connected to my works, new free electronic and tangible products as I release them, group chats, sponsorship of “creativity days,” and even monthly opportunities for one-on-one conversations with me.
How Your Patronage Will Help
Every dollar pledged brings me closer to my ultimate goal of becoming a full time creator of books, short stories, serials, non-fiction, serials, podcasts, music, and more. It’s going to take about $5,000.00 per month, consistently, to make that possible.
That’s not such a far-fetched goal. For example, if everyone in my mailing list community were to pledge just ten dollars a month (less than thirty five cents per day… pocket change!), we’d get really, really close to that goal.
Until then, I have a few milestones to shoot for.
When your patron pledges hit the $200.00 per creative work mark, each month I’ll dedicate an entire day to creative endeavors. On that day, I’ll keep a live video feed active in the lush and lavish studios of MWS Media, my office, and I’ll open up as much of my creative process to you on that day as is practical and possible. You’ll be virtually right there with me as I work.
Every additional $200.00 per month adds another day dedicated to creativity until…
When the level of patronage reaches $1,000.00 per creative work, I’ll reserve an entire week to focus on my creative endeavors for up to eight hours per day, Monday through Friday. As above, I’ll share my creative progress and process via a live video feed. Additionally, I’ll host at least one hour-long live group video chat during the week for my patrons so we can hang out together and talk about whatever you want.
You can probably see where this is going. As the pledge levels go up, I’ll keep adding days and weeks dedicated to creativity, until, at last, when the community’s collective patron pledges reach at least $5,000.00 per month, I’ll give up my freelance creative services work in favor of a full time living as a creator dedicated to my own works.
You’ll be there with me, every day, five days a week. I can’t wait to see what gets done, thanks to you!
