    Just started a Patreon page!

    So, I've been writing for a while now, doing both my blog and fiction writing. Last month I started up a Patreon page to help not only motivate me, but also to hopefully start turning my writing from a hobby into something more.

    You can visit my page here: Kyndryana's Patreon Page

    For those that aren't familiar with it, Patreon lets creators make a page and then set up a system by which people who enjoy their work can become Patrons. I have mine set up for a monthly donation (as opposed to a per-post donation), and there are several levels that you can become a Patron at, starting at $1.

    I have also been using my Patreon page as the hub for all the writing I do. Every Wednesday I write a blog post, about something Pagan related. This year I have been doing moon phase posts as well, for each of the eight moon phases, specifically focused on working with the energy of that particular moon. My blog and Moon posts are all publicly available, and you can read them for free on my Patreon site.

    I also started what I am calling my Witchy Children stories, which are magical seasonal stories about a group of magical children who live in a large house in the woods with their elders. The first one went up last month, and the children explored using a game to help them study their herbs. This month they will be carving lanterns for Samhain and making costumes for ritual. These stories are available to anyone at the $5 Patron level.

    At higher levels (you can read about what you get at different patron levels along the right side of the page) you will have access to excerpts from other things I am working on that aren't ready to release in full yet, like NaNo projects (one that is up already is an excerpt from my retelling of Norse mythology).

    Please check it out, read some of what I am writing and have shared there, and if you enjoy it consider supporting my writing by becoming a Patron (and gaining access to even more writing!) If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I am just starting out, so I would gladly welcome any feedback....I love to hear what other people think about what I do, whether it is something you enjoyed or suggestions for improvement! Thank you!

    (I checked with RandallS and he said it was okay to post this here)

    Update!

    This month I have some extras for my Patrons. The Witchy Children story I wrote for last month included eight chants that I wrote, and this month I will be posting videos of them along with behind the scenes information about the chants (thoughts I had while writing, inspiration, and so forth). I plan on posting one chant chant twice a week throughout the month of November that will be accessible to all Patrons!

    Also, I will be participating in NaNo again this year, and will be sharing bits of my writing as I go...every day I write for NaNo I will post a bit of what I have written. My story this year is about Alestair Windsong, who is Captain of the ship Souldream Seeker. His crew has sailors of all kinds of magical races, there will be magic and adventure and the crew will find a home on the ship that most didn't have where they grew up. I'm pretty excited about this story, it grew out of a whole world building game I did with my friends, and we are running RPG's in the world (the ship and crew are my setting and NPC's for my section of the game).

    And this is in addition to the things I offer every month, so come by and check it out!

    I've written something, that I would love to share with everyone. Writing is my art, and something that brings me great joy. I have ideas all the time for things I'd like to write about, and most of the time I only have a broad idea of where the story will go. I always start with the characters in my story. Once I start writing, they sometimes surprise me with what they want to do (which is always lots of fun!)

    I wanted to write a story about decorating a Yule tree, and was thinking about fun ornaments that could be made extra magical. When I was little, we liked to make popcorn and cranberry garlands to put on the trees outside, and that sparked the idea for a whole wildlife tree....because my Witchy Children would definitely want to leave gifts for their outdoor friends!

    I always end up doing research for stories I write. This time, it was looking up Suet and how to make it. Even when creating a story with highly magical or fantastical elements, I like to found my ideas in science and I always end up learning a ton when I write.

    The thing I've enjoyed most about writing the Witchy Children is that they each go about things so differently, and figuring out how each one would approach a project not only helps me develop their characters, but lets me stretch my creative mind as well.

    Anways, I hope you enjoy the story I've written as much as I enjoyed writing it!

    I just put up a poll and feedback post on my Patreon, and would love it if people would stop by and give me feedback! I welcome all comments (either here or there), and any suggestions for improvements....it's definitely been a rough start and I'd like to change that!

    The poll can be found here: Feedback Poll

    Thank you!
