The price for being a creative person who finds himself completely not beholden to the market comes from the fact that I still feel obligated to report what chump change I do make to the proper tax authorities, state and federal. This is NOT a bid to make actual substantial coin at this game. I'm too experienced at this to have that expectation.
Right now I have ZERO patrons on Patreon. Since I set up the Patreon account well over a year ago, I've attracted ZERO patrons total, and made ZERO dollars a month in patronage. I'll be "happy" if I can manage to wrangle eight dollars a month in patronage from the body politic by, say, a year from now. That is all.
