Hi y'all!

Inspired by The Art of Asking, the spirit of crowdfunding, and my belief in the innate goodness of people, I have decided to make the jump, and ask people for money in exchange for my art.

I have never done anything like this before.

I am a poet, recovering addict, small business owner, and domestic abuse survivor. My writing is an effort to end stigmas and empower those who suffer when love is used as a weapon. I moved to the UK from North Carolina in 2017, lending me a unique perspective on recovery, wellness, and life in general. I strive to create an honest account of all my experiences, both good and bad, as I have found freedom within truth.

I've been writing for as long as I can remember, and sharing it on my website for years. It never occurred to me to monetize it. I thought the only way that could be possible is to be 'discovered,' get published, and hope to god people bought it. But this is a new era.

I pay for everything. I am a patron of artists, I buy books, movies, music. I pay for food, coffee, clothes, and services. This is not a novel concept, although it may feel like it. The real novelty here is having the audacity to ask.

I pay for website and domain hosting and tech support, spend hours redesigning my website and writing and editing content. I market myself the best way I know how. I have spent years building a brand and pouring my heart out to the internet. I am not complaining- I love it- that's why I've done it for this long. But it is work and it is art, and who does it hurt to ask?

So this is me, asking you, to contribute in any way you'd like. You can share my writing with a friend you think it might resonate with. You can comment on a post that particularly moves you. Or, you can become an official patron and contribute a sum of money per thing I write/make. Whatever you want.

Thank you for being here and giving me your time. I am truly grateful.

Love,

CiCi
