I am finally admitting to myself that a weekly publication schedule doesn’t work for me.
It started off well enough, but I found that most stories weren’t getting the editing time they needed. I was rushing them to meet a self-imposed deadline. Since I’m both author and editor, this didn’t give the stories enough downtime for me to take a fresh look at them.
My new goal is to write every day, but publish only when I have a full, workable story. No more single-scene ones like I have which leave readers hanging with no foreseeable continuation. While I will still maintain the goal of publishing regularly, it won’t be on a weekly schedule anymore.
Besides to changing my publishing schedule, I am going to amend my Patreon settings as well. Since I’m no longer publishing regularly, I feel that it’s unfair to ask patrons to pay regularly too. Instead, I am changing my settings to “pay per creation” instead of “pay per month”.
If you have any comments on the change, or on anything else I’ve posted, please feel free to contact me. I welcome all feedback.
