Beautiful Dreamer

That graphic means only one thing, and it’s TIME TO LOOK AHEAD. Lots to talk about, so let’s get started.

  • This Website Needs Reorganisation

    hated_everything

    If I’m sending potential mentors here, it time to get things sorted. At least two pages as of writing this have no content. I can reorganise some links to be more coherent. Mostly, it all needs a once over and the smell of fresh bread to be more enticing. Therefore, over the next couple of days, stuff will magically appear. Plus, I’ll be dragging out the essays that were written for the Book of the Month project…

  • ‘Quite a Few’ Short Stories in Planning

    This feature has really taken off over the last few months, and it is consistently (along with the curated music lists) my top engagement with readers. As a result, we have a bit of a binge on, with content being planned a massive SIX MONTHS in advance. I think, on return from the break in September, we’ll stick a synopsis at the start of the Twitter feed before the story proper begins…

  • The August Poetry Recap

    newtype5

    As I have mentioned previously, August is a ‘content lite’ month. However, Twitter will, every day at 2pm (@Internetofwords) and 6pm (@AlternativeChat) provide you with one of the best poems from the last six months, as a reminder that I’m still alive even if on hiatus, and that I’ve written a LOT of poetry since the start of this journey. Yeah, some of it is better than the rest, but HEY everybody has to begin somewhere…

  • Gumroad ‘Coming in October’

    All things being equal, I’ll have Issue 1 of Arguto to sell at some point in the future. It will give you a tangible piece of literary output, with content not available anywhere else, including pictures and, guaranteed: one short story, one haiku plus a micropoetry sequence. It’s going to Gumroad, as will be some other exclusive items you can buy to help support my journey. Watch this Space.

  • Instagram is Back (well, sort of)

    mornings

    No, I’m not Facebook’s bitch, but if IoW is gonna fly, I am gonna need to sacrifice a piece of the soul to the Commercial Gods. This is particularly true now they do video. When the new stuff is ready to go, I’ll let you know, but it will be art/poetry based… and there’s already planning…

  • Supporting My Journey

This is your scheduled reminder that I’ll take Paypal payments and you can buy me a cuppa on Ko-Fi. If you’d like to donate, click here.


Internet of Words :: T Minus Seven Days

thismonthscontent

Finally, it’s a week to go. I’ve been working incredibly hard since the last time we spoke getting the back end of the site to a decent state, ready to receive the upcoming dump of data. The last of the tier rewards are now being produced and will be on their way shortly, so I can finally get pictures into the Patreon site. If you’re following the IoW Feed on Twitter there will be an opportunity to snag some exclusive prizes starting on Sunday, but for now there’s been a subtle but obvious increase in advertising. I’d like to thank the new people joining me on the journey, and hope I can make you think as well as have some fun along the way.

For now, you’ll be seeing a daily countdown on the Twitter feed and an introduction to the discussion topics around words and how the Internet uses them. Once we get to Monday, expect everything to go into Serious Mode as the Patreon will be open for Twitter followers. Before that, we’ll be running through the rewards available, what you can ask me to do for you (and yes, there will be individually produced content) providing a flavour of the first Book of the Month plus discussions arising. More significantly for some of you, there may also be an AMA for Launch day…

Thank you again for joining me, and may this be the beginning of a fruitful and entertaining relationship… 😀
