I'm not really sure how to promote myself. If you've enjoyed my work, and have ever felt the urge to throw some coin at me, I now have a Patreon.

I reveal the filename of the individual story and sometimes have additional notes/thoughts about them too. It's all completely free there, if you wish to check it out. I haven't thought of anything to actually place behind a subscription.

Here's the link, thanks for your time and interest!

What I want to say: I have so many words describing the pain I see in you, and how much I love you and want what's best for you, I'm here, I see you, and I see your pain, let me make it better.

What I say: <3

Seeing far more younger adults at Waitress than at any previous musical this season. Like, majority under 40 for sure, and maybe under 35. Will be interested to see the ratio at Hamilton in August.

Checked the forecast for the week and the lows are just low enough for it to continue to be flannel sheet weather. I'll take it.
