Commissions Open

Hey guys~

Gonna open up for story commissions (long time, I know). Like always, please read my guidelines first and fill out the Google form before contacting me. Doing so gives me a better idea what you want right away, even if you’re not 100% sure what you want; we can always clear things up later on.

Guidelines – https://rickypaszek.wordpress.com/story-commissions-info/
Form – https://forms.gle/GtZi2QAqZ28gL2UK6

There are a few changes I’m making to commissions, however, so please take note of these:

  • prices have increased based on a rate of $0.0075USD per word; this may not sound like much, but it’s significant once you view/calculate prices for each 1K word teir
  • you will be sent a paypal.me link instead of an invoice when payment is due; this is to make things easier for both of us, hopefully, and I’ve already had a couple people flat-out send me the money before I could send them an invoice
  • if you’re a ko-fi donor, I apologize, but I will not be doing donor discounts on commissions anymore; it’s become a little too difficult for me to keep track of and was more of an incentive for people to donate towards that and not as a tipping service

I will be opening for three slots. However, these are not necessarily first come, first serve; I will need to look at what you want first and see if I’ll be willing to write it or not. (This is where reading the guidelines and form comes into play).

I will show commission progress on my Trello, which can be found here >>> https://trello.com/b/1DK9nJXf/story-commission-status

Thank you to everyone who’s commissioned me in the past and for everyone who enjoys my writing! This has always been a fun, interesting experience for me, despite the stresses it may bring 🙂

Announcement

Hey guys~

Just a quick announcement regarding commissions that I forgot to mention on my last journal about these: I’m thinking of closing the form sometime this weekend, most likely Saturday 5/25 (unsure of time right now, though most likely between 9am and 11am CST).

I’ve already gotten a few entries and a few more interested in getting a commission from me. I’ll be honest, I was not expecting to get more than one or two this quickly, and what I’ve seen so far are all good ideas.

Depending on what happens between now and Saturday, I may leave the form open but only work on three stories at a time. I may, however, cap the number of entries I’ll do to a total of 9 or 12; again, this depends on how many people show interest during the rest of this week.

So, if you’re still interested in getting a commission from me but haven’t filled out the form yet, please see this post here >>> https://rickypaszek.wordpress.com/2019/05/19/commissions-open/

Rough Sparring

Another story request for a friend of mine, this time featuring my goat bro, Jamie, having a little spar with a…girl?? (How uncanny!) Still wanting to get back into the swing of writing regularly and balancing that with life and whatnot.

Still keeping Jamie SFW though, but that’s not to say he’s starting to dabble into the romance territory as of late.

NOTE: This does not mean I will open requests to the public; writing requests are still reserved for friends only.

Combo Flanking Maneuver

A while back, I wanted to get something with Yarred that touches on our love for all things fantasy: games, movies, shows, books, what have you. Plus, I wanted to get something a little different in general. I gotta say, I enjoyed seeing this progress whenever we got together on a Discord call; this one is easily a top favorite of mine, by far, even mentioning to Yarred I’d be willing to get a print of this (and dead serious about it too).

The reason I’m posting this on this blog in particular is because I even decided to write up a little flash fiction piece based off of this, though this was more used as a starting point. Also, for anyone who plays or have played Runescape, you may recognize a few locations/scenarios mentioned below. Continue reading

Sparring With Confidence

To try and get back into the swing of writing regularly again, I decided to take some request from a select few I’ve asked. One of whom is my friend, Rocky, who wanted a simple boxing-themed story featuring himself and…well, me 😛

Hope you guys enjoy!

Some things…

Hey guys…It’s been a while…

First of all, you may have noticed I recently uploaded a story commission; this means I’m now finished with what commissions I had left in queue. However, I don’t think I’ll open up for commissions again anytime soon, for a few reasons:

– I want to start writing stories for myself and work on older ones that have been on the backburner for too long.
– I need to work on my personal life as much as I can to where I can feel fully content with my current situation. It’s much better than where I was at a year ago, but there is some areas that need improvement.
– I want to start reading more; this can range from stories I find online or others share with me, or from the number of books I own that have been sitting on my shelf as decoration.
– I may start writing stories for free/PWYW via ko-fi, mainly in terms of a YCH, regardless if others’ character(s) play a major or minor role in the story. I may keep this limited to friends, though, and I’m not considering these as requests.
– I did have an actual YCH story idea in mind, but I may just scrap it or rework it and write it as a personal story. Might have this one include other people’s characters, if they are willing to allow me to use them.
– I might just close requests and trades/collabs for now; again, I want to write for myself.

A lot of this I should have done when I first joined the fandom, rather than take on commissions as soon as I had an identity established. But, I guess better late than never, eh?

Will I get published, who knows? Will I decide to self-pub later down the line? Maybe. But the first step I need to do is write, and write, and write.

As a side note: I no longer RP. Please don’t ask or I will ignore you. I no longer have the desire to do so, nor do I have the time anyway anymore.

Brawl in the Pridelands

A heated fight between two buff kitties I’m sure many of us are familiar with. I was a tad hesitant to take this on, but I later found this to be a fun story to work on.

A Beating and a Bonding

The third and, from what I’ve been told, final story in a trilogy of commissions for the same person who wanted me to write “Back for More” and “An Old Friend” (they still wished to remain anonymous, but have allowed me to post this to my gallery). Like with the other two stories, I enjoyed writing this one quite a lot ^^
