A car-cast edition of Sonitotum with Matthew Wayne Selznick, episode 076 presents another possibly audacious proposal as a… means… to acquire the financial means to have the time and energy to engage in major creative projects in an all-out approach, rather than in bits and pieces as opportunity allows.
Also: listener feedback!

Links and Topics Mentioned in This Episode
- My day job? I’m a creative services provider helping authors, podcasters and other creators. How can I help you?
- Did you miss last episode’s in-depth conversation with author Joyce Reynolds-Ward? Check it out!
- Obsidian.md is a knowledge management application that works almost any way you want it. I’m investigating it as a possible platform to serve as my perfect / ideal software for creative writing — a subject I went deep on in this episode of Sonitotum.
- Creator and developer Chrispian H. Burks offered excellent feedback and perspective on the feasibility of developing my dream writing software from whole cloth. He’s also been a friend and fan for pretty much ever, so cheers, pal!
- Reader community member Brian reached out about Hazy Days and Cloudy Nights: “How It All Got Started,” and really inspired this episode. Thanks, Brian!
- Brian — like not a few members of my reader community over the years — is keenly interested in an official audiobook for the canonical edition of my first novel, Brave Men Run — A Novel of the Sovereign Era. The only Sovereign Era audiobook available so far is for my short story “The World Revolves Around You.”
- One of the ongoing works in progress that might get a real speed boost from my proposal is Shadow of the Outsider, the next volume of my Shaper’s World cycle, which so far includes the novel Light of the Outsider and the novelette “The Perfumed Air at Kwaanantag Bay.”
- I mentioned the Scribtotum article in which I discuss the difference between systems and goals — and the benefits of the former over the latter.
- The last time I did anything like a crowdfunding campaign, I kept it simple, I kept it small, and I rolled my own. You can read all about it in this Scribtotum article.
