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 working on three stories at a time; as commissions complete, that entry will be removed from the total. Once I hit 9 form entries total, it will be closed. 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 🙂
There are still TWO more slots for commissions, requests, and trades!
Announcement post is updated to reflect this.
Copy/pasted from my journal announcement on FurAffinity, SoFurry, and Weasyl with some slight tweaking for the blog.
I have decided to open up commissions again. They were fun to do and I would love to write for you guys again.
Also, I’ve decided to open up requests and trades. I finally got around to writing up guidelines for those. All the info can be found under the “About Commissions, Requests, and Trades” menu.
For commissions, I will be taking ONE LAST slot.
First off, this won’t necessarily be a first come, first serve. I will go over your commission request with you via private messages/notes and if I’m willing to do it, you get a slot. However, this depends on how many message me wanting a commission, so it may end up being a first come, first serve if I don’t get a lot of commission requests.
Secondly, I won’t start the commission process until all slots are filled. In the case of slots taking too long to fill up (they don’t fill up by the end of this year), I may go ahead and start on them.
Finally, I do not want due dates. I’ve had this happen to me a couple times already and it got too stressful for me, plus I felt horrible finishing a commission long after the customer requested a completion date. I strive to complete a commission within a month of approval, two months maximum. Writing takes time to do well, and life likes to get in the way…a lot. But I push through and find or make the time to write. On that note, I try to give customers progress updates as much as I can, even if there’s not much progress. This is purely an assurance for you so you’re not waiting months upon months for a commission.
Please don’t hesitate to send a message my way if you have any questions!
