This Week on Patreon (Week 46)

Posted November 16, 2018 by Lynn E. O'Connacht in Miscellaneous / 0 Comments

My Patreon tends to be a fairly quiet place, but I wanted to share links to 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.

Most of the posts are locked to patrons, though you’ll find at least one public post each month. Enjoy!

The Ice Princess’s Fair Illusion (un)FAQ

Posted October 31, 2018 by Lynn E. O'Connacht in Miscellaneous / 0 Comments

Tags:

With the release of The Ice Princess’s Fair Illusion being so close (less than a week now!), I figured it’d be nice if I did a short FAQ-style post for questions I can imagine coming up. So! Here I am, answering not-so-frequently asked questions in the hopes that the answers will be helpful to you!

Some questions may contain mild spoilers.

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!

13 Dos and Don’ts for Ace and Aro Panels and Talks

13 Dos and Don'ts for Ace and Aro Panels and Talks

~1,600 words

This month, I’ve got another free short essay for everyone. Based on my experience discussing asexuality and aromanticism and with encountering ace and aro panels online in various ways (which frequently, to be honest, does not inspire me to want to attend any since they often all seem to replicate the same basic issues), I’ve compiled a general lits of Dos and Don’ts. You can probably apply them to more topics than asexuality and aromanticism and more types of content than talks or panels.

This essay on Patreon. Enjoy!

October 2018 Goals

This Month's Goals
I Want to Read:

  • Tone of Voice by Kaia Sønderby
  • The Mirror Empire by Kameron Hurley
  • The Lie Tree by Francis Hardinge

I Want to Write:

  • That Darned Essay

I’m ramping things up a little bit after September, mostly because I’m hoping to have my reading abilities back. We’ll see how it goes. It’d be nice to cut deeper into my small physical TBR pile, though. It’d be even nicer if I got so far into it that I could put all the books away and have only ebooks left for the foreseeable future, but that’s not likely to happen. There’s a bit too many of them for that.

Writing-wise, while I’m itching to get back to Demiprincess2 properly, I desperately want to finish that essay I’ve been struggling to work on for the past half a year. OMG! I know! It’s taking me a ridiculous amount of time. I wish I could use “this setting is utterly massive and even cutting discussions down to the absolute bare minimum number of books that I can means I’m reading, at minimum, 7 primary sources just in the fiction department” as an excuse, but I really don’t think that is the issue.

One of the issues is, very definitely, looking this closely at a series I adore and plucking at the ways in which it’s actually failed me, so I can discuss the ways it hasn’t failed me. (Trust me, it makes sense in the essay itself.) So there’s a lot of stuff that I have to unpack just for myself in order to write the best essay possible and that’s all stuff that I… wasn’t expecting to need to do. And I do need to do it. So I have been.

But this month surely. This month I can get a rough draft that I’m actually happy with written up. Right? Wish me luck because I’ve been saying that for the past 6 months now.
