What does the new year hold in store for us? Let's give it a little look-see: Commissions! That's right, some (two) of you have expressed interest in having me listen to the ideas in your brain and put them onto e-paper so you can see them better! Well fear not, because your desire for lexual stimulation shall go unheeded no longer! Starting today (probably, I need to mess around with this thing that I'm totally new at,) I will be accepting commissions RIGHT HERE ON MY DA PAGE. There's a little tab (so I'm led to understand) that will have have a button which will cost 800 DA points ($10) to click (This is totally irrelevant, but if you google "DA points" you get golf statistics. That's funny to me.) and give me those points and that will buy you a Commission Slot.
What does a Commission Slot do? Well the first thing it does is it lets us talk about what you want to see. You and I will sit down somewhere, preferably in a dark corner of a shady bar, away from the prying eyes of the law, and we'll discuss what kind of story you wanna see. You tell me what you want and I tell you how doable it is, and we go back and forth until you're happy with what I can do for you. Then I steal away, leaving you stuck with the tab, and I write it out as soon as I'm able and then I post it up for the world to enjoy, or just you if you're super embarrassed about your deep, dark fantasies.
"But Tinyo-" I hear you cry before I cut you off. I know what you're gonna say next. You're going to say I'm being super-vague about exactly what you're getting - and you're right. The $10 is only a guarantee of a story. There's no word or page length guarantee, but I expect these stories will be around typical story length, about 5-8k words a story. Some of this is dependent on how much you give me; "A story where my sister steps on me," is a legit request, but it doesn't give me a lot to go with. Some is dependent on how familiar and comfortable I am with the content, and that's something I'll let you know during the aforementioned talkings. Finally, there's always peer review! Like I said, unless you're uncomfortable with the concept of the story being posted, they'll all be publicly visible, with a little note explaining that they were a commission, and others can gauge whether or not they feel $10 of story is being written, and you can even weigh in yourself!
This post is super long and pretty rambly, so bullet points:
- 800 DA points ($10) buys you a Commission Slot
- A Commission Slot lets you talk to me about what you want to have written and guarantees a story based on your request.
I guess that's basically it, huh? I understand it's kind of a trust thing, and where money's concerned trust gets scarce, but I'll do my best to earn it! Thanks so much for reading this GIANT WALL OF TEXT (or the bullet points [or both]) and I hope you guys have a pleasant, full 12 months of this brand new year we've just entered!
