About Catlin Riddle


Hello, I am Catlin Riddle and I'd like to thank you for visiting my Patreon page. Currently, I am in the beginning stages of doing this. I'd like to explain why I am choosing to write on Patreon. Eventually, I would like to write a book, or multiple books. I have great ideas that I have started noting down and mapping out, but while I get to the point of perfecting a good solid book, I'd also like to practice and exercise my mind more doing short stories as well. This is where you come in. I would like to provide quality fictional stories to readers and supporters. Some of these may be stories that stemmed from dreams I have had in the past from childhood, to now. I also plan to have a more interactive role with you all by starting out with Discord being the main (non-story) reward in the beginning. I would like to perfect my writing skills, and use any critique and feedback as a learning experience, while also sharing new worlds with you all.


I'm 29 and living in Kansas. Total nerd and usually awkward around people. I do marketing work as a full time job for a professional audio company. Although there is some creativity involved, there's still a standard company look and feel I have to stick with. As much as I like graphic design, I don't feel I can really express my creativity to it's full extent doing that job alone. I grew up doing a lot of art, primarily enjoying drawing rather than painting. But I also grew up with a love for reading. I'm not sure any other childhood friend I knew, ever visited the public library as much as I did.

Education-wise, I hated public school. Who didn't? I even failed my English classes and didn't graduate on time so I had to repeat a year. Doesn't sound like someone that wants to write right? I used to insist that I'd go straight into the work world and never do college. Oh how I was wrong. After a year out of school, I ended up giving community college a try. There, I aced my English Composition classes and found I really enjoyed the descriptive writing portions. Though, I did quit that community college after the first year. It just wasn't for me. Soon after coming back home, I ended up enrolling into ITT-Tech. There I primarily learned all my graphic design related skills. It wasn't worth all the debt. I feel I learned more at my current job than I did there. After getting my Associates there, and working for about 3 1/2 years, I came to the decision to pursue more college, only this time, I'd do online courses at a slower and more manageable pace. I'm now pursuing English Literature and Creative Writing with a Focus in Fiction at SNHU Online. This isn't a change in careers for me, but rather a personal pursuit of knowledge that will help me do something I'd love to do as a hobby. Although maybe if I love it a lot and do well, it could become a career. For now though, I would like to write out of my passion for creativity.


Right now aside from getting to read my stories as a patron, the reward system will be set up as a more interactive options from which we can talk/discuss, collaborate, and even just hang with like-minded individuals. Those that are involved with Discord may also get ahead of other patrons on what is coming out next! The rewards are:

Q. Why are there multiple ranks with the same cost but different names?
A.
This is done so that creative patrons that specialize in specific areas can easily spot and converse with others based on interests and/or collaboration ideas.

Q. Why is Discord "Moderator" Tier so costly compared to the other ranks?
A.
Well with great power, comes great responsibility. The price is so that we don't get just any random spammer coming in and wreaking havoc among members.
Goals
$2 of $500 per month
Bookmarks! For those avid readers whom still enjoy that papery scent that comes from a physical book in your hands, will now have the option for bookmarks to become a reward! I will personally design 1 side in full color. The other side will be signed personally by me! My goal of $500 will not only help cover the cost of the bookmarks, but will also help cover the costs of stamps and mailing. Leading up to this goal, I will happily accept ideas and input on the design, and will display a number of design drafts. This can potentially lead to multiple designs to choose from unless one simply outshines all.
