I'm Rain Emery Chamberlain; I use they/them pronouns. I'm both autistic and physcially disabled, I'm very queer including being non-binary. I'm a survivor of many things that can only be talked about with TWs/CNs, and I've spent most of my life in homelessness and extreme poverty.

Update: There are stickers coming very soon, and I will be teasing more info about them as the week goes on!

I did finish the first draft of the dystopian novel in November. The story changed a bit along the way, and there is much editing to look forward to. I finally have a title for it - "Compliance" - and the story is now mostly about disability solidarity in a fictional setting that doesn't value any life that isn't productive. (Oops, it's social commentary, who would have guessed.)

I am still working on the first draft of the ebook The Countdown to Homelessness, although my pace on that has slowed. For those that didn't see or don't remember, it will be a free-to-access ebook that details the harm reduction tips I have learned from my years homeless, aimed towards those who are likely to be homeless in the near future. It is being written in response to multiple requests to share my experiences in the area for exactly that reason, and realizing that one-on-one conversations can never quite get across enough (especially with my memory recall difficulties).

I just started submitting poetry and shorter works to paying publications again, in hopes of creating both an income and a decent "works published" section through that. For many of these, I cannot post the poetry here before submitting it, because most places want first publishing rights, but I will link to the works once they are published.

I have been writing articles and twitter threads much more frequently and will continue doing so. I have also begun sketching again, and am thrilled to report I'm still decent at it. There will be pictures to show on here as soon as I draw one that isn't intended for someone specifically (I feel very strange sharing something that I drew for someone.)

There are exciting things in the works concerning upcoming videos, but it is still to early in the process to report on specifics. I do have access to equipment and am learning how to use it, as well as ideas for what to vlog once I get that far, so there's something to look forward to soon.

I am, as always, continuing case management for people who otherwise fall through cracks in services due to reasons like homelessness, disabilty, extreme poverty, and discrimination. There will be more to report on how this is shaping soon. I am also still working with a couple of groups on transgender legal rights and education. Funds from my patreon support me personally, but they allow me to continue these various works as well, which are my real passions. (Don't get me wrong, I love writing. But until the suffering in the world has decreased enough that my dystopian writings are only fictional warnings to not ever go back, there is so much more that needs to be done.)

I have also put together a very simple website to act as a virtual business card to link to my different public accounts, ways to support me, and ways to contact me. So if you're here and want to follow me or support me in a different way, click here > rainchamberlain-contact.carrd.co

Goals
$22 of $245 per month
$245 a month will allow me to replace welfare cash benefits dollar-for-dollar. Now that I am no longer on welfare cash benefits, I need to replace that income quickly. This will allow me to keep writing, creating, and doing community work at the same pace I have been - something that I really don't want to lose. My goal is to make this much across all platforms by the end of February '19, and to make this much on patreon alone in the near future.
