Legion of Nothing Patreon Account

I thought I ought to let people know that I’ve created a Legion of Nothing Patreon account. In case you don’t know, Patreon is a business that allows people to support creators they like by pledging an amount on a monthly basis.

I’ve been putting off doing this until I get everything finished with all the Kickstarter awards including Book 3, but I decided that it would be wiser to put it up.

Basically, I didn’t want to overwhelm myself. There’s no way I’m going to be putting up extra updates based on donation totals when I’m still working on fulfilling the Kickstarter.

Thus, for now, I’m putting it up, but I’m making it easy on myself and not promising much. When I’ve got everything related to the Kickstarter taken care of, I’ll get serious about Patreon.

  1. Jim, I’ve been archive diving for the past few weeks after getting referred from the comments sections over at Super Powereds and Worm. Fantastic series, I’m loving every bit of it! Unfortunately, I expect to catch up later today, then I’ll be stuck waiting with everyone else for the next update.

    Anyways, besides all that, just wanted to say that I pledged on Patreon and hope it goes well for you!

    1. Thanks for reading and thanks for the donations.

      Honestly, I wish I could write faster. Once I get Patreon going as a serious project, that might happen, but we’ll see. It seems like a reward that might be worth trying provided I can keep it up.

      1. I’m not complaining at all about your writing speed! I mean, sure, it’s been a real treat whipping through the archive without waiting for new content, but one of the highlights of my week now is reading Drew Hayes’ new content, and after I catch up on the League today, your new content will be another highlight of my week.

        On a side note, I’m working on the plot and background for my own serial now, so I can only imagine what it must be like to continually put out high quality content like you have for the last 9 years or so!

        1. I didn’t think you were complaining about my writing speed, but to be honest, every time someone says, “Hey I’m (almost) up to the current date,” I always think, “You’re in for a rude awakening.” I’m mostly thinking of how slowly things appear as I write them vs. an archive trawl at that point.

          I really wish I had enough time to put in to write 4K or 8K word count updates, but I’m married and have kids, so that doesn’t work out.

          That said, good luck on starting your own serial. It is a challenge, but also a lot of fun if you enjoy writing. The best advice I can give is to be aware of the pace that you set for yourself. If you make the serial too much work, you’ll burn out. If you set the right pace, you can do it for a long time.

          And that’s why I may wish I could write more, but despite that, I’m basically okay with the amount I’m writing. It fits within the limits of the time I have.
