This Week on Patreon (Week 25)

My Patreon tends to be a fairly quiet place, but I wanted to share the posts that go up every week. In this case, I’m counting weeks from Saturday to Friday so anyone who wants to explore things during the weekend can do so.

While most of my posts are locked to patrons, a lot of them will release to the public and get cross-posted to this website after a month as well. Those’ll be indicated with a little asterisk (*) behind them. It may not always be exactly a month because, for the sake of my poor brain, I’m counting a month as “that same number in the next month, except the 31st gets moved to the 30th”. Sometimes posts may also be posted simultaneously for everyone to read and sometimes posts may go up earlier because reasons that will be explained in that post.

I strive to find a balance between offering up a good amount of content to everyone for free, which Patrons get to experience a month before everyone else, and interesting extra content exclusive to Patrons. I hope you’ll find something interesting among the posts this week! Enjoy!

Guest Interview: Claudie Arseneault on Baker Thief

Wow, it’s been a while since I did one of these, but today I’m interviewing Claudie Arseneault to talk about her upcoming new superhero NA story centring aromantic characters and non-romantic relationships, Baker Thief. It’ll release on June 26th, 2018, so that’s not too long a wait now. It’s delightful!

Disclaimer: I edited Baker Thief and am biased not just because Claudie is a dear friend but because I edited the book. I just love it bits and bits and I can’t wait for you all to meet Claire, Adèle and everyone else. Baker Thief has been one of my favourite books of 2017, and I couldn’t talk about it, and I fully expect it to be one of my favourite books this year as well, and now I can talk about it. WHOOT!

So, without further ado, let me give you the description and we’ll hop on over to the interview.

June 2018 Goals

Posted June 2, 2018 by Lynn E. O'Connacht in Goals / 0 Comments

This Month's Goals
I Want to Read:

  • The Riddle of the Wren by Charles de Lint
  • Theatre Shoes by Noel Streatfeild
  • Throne of the Crescent Moon by Saladin Ahmed

I Want to Write:

  • 5,000 words of fiction

I’m going to stick to focusing on studying this month, with a detour into working on nonfiction essayage and trying to finish up at least one short story I’ve been polishing. That one story should net me close to that 5,000 words.

And, yeah, that is pretty much all I have to say about this month, so… I will just get to it. 😀

Goal Review May 2018

Posted May 31, 2018 by Lynn E. O'Connacht in Goals / 0 Comments

Last Month's GoalI Want to Read:

  • Mindline by M.C.A. Hogarth
  • Monstrous Regiment by Terry Pratchett
  • The Riddle of the Wren by Charles de Lint

I Want to Write:

  • 5,000 words of fiction

Uh… I read… 1 book on the list? I did start in the second, but apparently I spent most of this month reading ebooks. Which is… what this month’s choices were supposed to prevent. Oops. Unless I finish Monstrous Regiment before the end of the day (tempting, actually), May will also mark the first month where I’m reading single digits this month. Well, unless I count my text books which will just confuse my numbers, so let’s not.

I’ll have read either 10 or 9 books by the end of today. One of them was a chunkster, The Poppy War, which I will eventually learn how to spell on the first try. It’s also one of the few books I genuinely enjoyed this month, though ‘enjoy’ is… not exactly the word I’d use to describe The Poppy War. I mean it makes grimdark look like puppies and rainbows. This undoubtedly added to my general feelings about reading this month. I still read about 2 books a week, though!

And I did, however, write a bunch. I wrote almost 30,000 words this month! :O

Wait, what?

This is, largely, because I finished the Ace and Aro Tropes essay and that one clocks in at about 8,000-something words. I’d have to doublecheck. With quotes the full thing was 9,500 words, though. So without that we’re still looking at a pretty healthy number. Mainly this is because Thrushbeard’s protagonists are pretty chatty, I think. I’ll start and suddenly I’m 1,000 words into a poem and get to go back and see if there’s a nicer breaking point somewhere sooner. Oh dear.

So that is actually going surprisingly well.

Studying is also happening, although depression, website issues and the heat wave in May made it take a bit of a hit. 🙁 It goes apace, though. Whoo!

And that’s all that’s been going on for May.
