Late night anxieties.

I’m having late night anxieties, mostly surrounding money. I mean, it’s not exactly keeping me up at night. Headache, joint ache, and a possible low-grade fever are doing that. But since I’m up, this is what’s occupying my mind: money. My Patreon payouts are still just over two weeks away. Cash will dribble in in small, unpredictable amounts until then. Me having a surplus following WisCon helped out a bit. The kind gifts some readers purchased off my Amazon wishlist have also helped. But I don’t think I’m going to be able to relax until my WorldCon fundraiser is over, and I’ve had my first payout on my new Patreon set-up.

Nothing can speed up the latter, but we’re very close on the former. Just $355 to go and I can close the thing out. That’s not nothing, but it’s less than 20% of the total. A few moderately sized donations or one really generous one or several smaller ones, and it could be done this month, or this week, or this weekend.

I know, I know… I’ve been given so much already. But I have to believe that I’m worth it, or I wouldn’t ask.
