To go alongside the new Patreon, I had no idea what Discord was until I set up the Patreon, but my son is 15 and uses it and seemed very surprised when I told him I had an account. He then refused to give me the link to the chat rooms he uses for some reason. I can’t think why

Westmouthshire Universe Patreon Launched

So, why the Patreon? Think of it as motivation to get writing in a meaningful way. My intention is to release one chapter from the pieces I’m working on each weekend. Right now I have about twenty chapters I can release, so that should keep me going until 2022 and all I need to do then is stay ahead of this by writing one or two chapters a week.

If you read yesterday’s post, you’ll know that my current goal to do a full read through/edit of the first draft of The Truths We Live. As part of this one thing I’m doing is adding fake tweets and text messages to the manuscript. These will carry through into the eBook and while it will make the eBook file larger to do this, I hope it will add to the experience of reading it.

Setting Goals

I don’t deadlines when it comes to my writing—I get enough of deadlines at work, I don’t need them in an activity that’s supposed to be a hobby.
