A Stressful First Month

Written by Kodi Wolf at 4:29 PM

Well, this has been one crazy month.

First, I opened the site and was inundated with e-mails, which totally set off my social phobia, so I've basically been in a constant state of panic the whole time.

Then I injured my neck again, so I've been limited to how long I can be on the computer, but because of all the e-mails I've had to respond to, either from people asking about the site or congratulating me on finally opening or my BetaWolves needing help, I've spent most of that precious time writing e-mails instead of working on my stories, which has been really frustrating. To compensate, I've been doing research (watching documentaries or reading books and taking notes) while resting my neck and using ice packs, which has actually produced some really good story ideas for me and helped me solve several problems I was having with a couple stories, so that's been cool. But I'd still rather be writing.

To top it all off, my wife recently had enough of all the homophobic crap from her family and attempted to cut ties, only to receive harassing phone calls from her brothers and an upsetting letter from her mother, plus we keep running into family members at our chiropractor's office, so that's been seriously stressful.

On the bright side, my neck does seem to be getting better and I met my break-even point for the year regarding the costs of running the site, so I don't really have to worry about raising more funds until next year.

My thanks go out to everyone who paid for a Story or Site Membership (and extra special thanks to those who chose to forgo the coupons and pay full price). Your support is much appreciated and while I'm not technically getting paid for my writing yet (at this point, I'm just trying to cover costs and recoup past debt), every little bit helps and brings me that much closer to making that dream a reality.

I'm truly grateful and I couldn't have asked for a better birthday present (I turned 36 on the 11th). So thank you.

PS Happy Leap Day! :)
