    Well that was a rapid and overwhelming response

    Seriously, I posted my last blog... three hours ago? And a bunch of you decided to pitch in. Uh... Thank you. Seriously. I mean it.

    Um.

    I guess I should work on some ponyfic. See if I can get anything out for... let's say halloween? Yeah.

    YEAH

    Definitely going to go for some creepy pone!

    So....

    It's been a long time, huh? Almost a year. And I'm back to beg for money.

    Le sigh...

    Status Update: Mostly okay!

    I've got most of my workload for the month done, via my new RWBY/H:ZD fic, and a number of chapters in the pipeline! That said...

    this is awkward to admit but I kinda need sixty dollars to pay off my internet bill before the day is out.

A month's worth of radio silence · 4:01pm Dec 3rd, 2019

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.

There is so much I have to do....

Okay, so those of you who pay attention to my patreon may have noticed that (a) I only did four updates last month and (b) I did them near the end of the month. Which means I'm a little behind on cash this month, but I don't think I'll be so behind as to need to beg for money... although it'll be tight and close. So it might happen. I don't know.

Many of you might know my stated intention of 'getting a resume site up before the year is out.' The issue is... I'm blanking on how to arrange that site. I have the tools and the guidelines and some of the stuff to do, but, well, it's been sitting in an open tab and not getting done.

And many of you are probably wondering if I just up and left the fandom. Nope. My muse decided to sit in another project for the whole month. Which meanse the things I promised to do are still not getting done...

Look at this point, I just have to admit it. I may be great at writing fanfic, but my real passion is coordinating fanfic. Being part of a community of writers that collaberate on shared universes. The thing is, I don't know how to monetize that. I can't put up Patreon posts for works that other people contributed to--not in good conciensce, anyway. I could ask the groups I work for to pay me, but that's.... it's meant to be free for everyone to join in, right? That's what I'm trying to make a resume for--an organizer, general purpose, who can input and guide everyone. The problem is most people who are looking for that sort of person are looking for somebody with a degree, of some sort, which... guh.

But, hey, I think I'll be able to get done what I need to this month. Another thing I'm good at: Making things happen when it's down to the wire.

What about those shorter entries you do for the RWBY episodes on the looper thread at space battles? Obviously each one alone is too short, but maybe as a compilation?

Wish I could offer some advice on how to handle the whole "marketing yourself as a coordinator" thing. That said, you're absolutely welcome to charge for contributions to the Oversaturated World. If it helps, think of it as an extremely roundabout form of commissioning. :derpytongue2:

See, that is one of the things I wouldn't want to charge for. The ILP is big and has a lot of authors. Those snips are kind of... like, the way I keep my brain running?

Yay your alive!!!
