So, my mantes and I came to a decision, and we're going to stay in Austin for at least another year. As such, I need to make a decision on what I want to do about my writing.

I currently have two options: Rely on book sales, or go with a Patreon. I plan on doing art as well, and a Patreon would help me get the money for tools a lot easier than relying on book sales would.

Right now, I need the following things for my art and writing:

  1. A copy of Manga Studio or Paint Tool SAI.
  2. A Surface Pro (pen tablet) or decent 2-in-1 laptop.
  3. A way to take over the monthly bill for my Office 365 subscription.
  4. Funding to make sure I keep my domain name.

As it is, I'm relying on others for these things, but I want to do this on my own. However, Patreon will have drawbacks, such as needing to think of rewards for large-pledge patrons, and having hard coded deadlines.

I want to go with Patreon, but if I do, it'll have to wait until my stress levels fall once again. I can’t work well when I’m stressed out, and these last few weeks…couple of months of worrying about a potential move accumulated to a bit of an outburst yesterday. I need to calm myself down a bit.

I need to make this decision soon, for my own sake. Once I make that decision, I can figure out my next step, and move on from there.
