    Good news!

    I had acquired a job! and thus a steady income.

    Bad news!

    It's a full time job and so my free time got destroyed like a helpless tanuki habitat by humanity.

    Good news!

    I'm still willing to do the patreon thing along with commissions still!

    Bad news!

    It's going to be somewhat slow... but it WILL get done.

    https://www.patreon.com/Biigoh << my patreon.

    My commission rates are still set to a reasonably cheap rate of 1 cent per word, ie $1 per 100 words, ie $10 for 1000 words. Just fire me a line via PM or if you're shameless like me... reply to this thread. :>

    I can do both fanfiction and original works, as long as you don't get super specific in details as that does tend to slow me down a tad due to a fickle muse and my *coughs* hit zones as it were.

    >_>

    <_<

    Truth be told, some of you are aware of the financial straits I'm in. I suspect that this would be news to most of you, given how private I tend to be about RL stuff. But long story short, I am at near breaking point in terms of money and I'm struggling to find employment that will pay the bills.

    $700 will see me set in terms of rent and utilities for the month. More is as always welcome.

    To that end, I have set up a Patreon at https://www.patreon.com/Biigoh

    As you can tell I'm not too saavy with this Patreon thing... which is why I've set it for a pay when updates happen rather than pay once a month... for now. I might even need to readjust things on said patreon. ^_^;;;

    That said, I'm also open to donations. If 70 people donate $10, I'd be set for the next month...

    But I have my pride too... so I will be treating both patreon and donations as effectively commissions, whereby I take direct requests.

    I can do both fanfiction and original works, as long as you don't get super specific in details as that does tend to slow me down a tad due to a fickle muse and my *coughs* hit zones as it were.

    Also, more money donated means that I'm more inclined to do more and more stuff for you... yes, I know I know... I currently have a 'Reimu' avatar and deserve the prostitution jokes and the empty donation box jokes. But rest assure that if you've given me money... you'll be on a list, but if someone gives lots of money and make me wear a collar and... erm... right... basically people who give me more money will get priority and so on.

    And yes, I will also accept money with no requests because I am a desperate tanuki.

    Donations can be made at paypal at the e-mail address biigoh@msn.com or via patreon.

    Like clouds, time floats on,
    once young, now old without note.
    Where has my life gone?

    With that haiku done,
    Tis time for introductions,
    Welcome one and all.

    A simple wordsmith,
    Fluffy as can be, in prose,
    Ask not for lines drawn.

    Short stories, my craft.
    On mailing lists and forums,
    my words have been read.

    Now, they are laid bare,
    to delight and please you all,
    for but a few coins.

    Forbidden Content?

    Always good to know what I can and can not bribe out of the Tanuki.

    Yeah.

    What's the largest chunk of words I could order?

    EDIT: Not saying I will necessarily go that high, but I would like to know the reasonable word limit before buying some words.

    Do you mean 5,000 words (=$50), or are we talking $5,000 (=500,000 words)?

    Hmm... If I hypothetically wanted 20 sonnets, that would be around... 25 bucks, right? Or do you exclusively work in prose?

    It has been since the early 90s when I was in high school since I've done sonnets.
