re: If people want an open network, stop shit-talking open things 

producing work isn't the problem here, other people's bullshit at an industry level is.

but unlike having work get published, let alone making a living from that, there's nothing stopping me from doing things this way. so why not

what i'm thinking here is more or less this:

- write a manuscript
- serialize it in order, with PDFs attached if needed for formatting (which is one of the technical hurdles, especially for poetry)
- release the manuscript at the end of serialization
- have Patreon tied to it all along, but without it being paywalled
- repeat

obscurity is one thing, obscurity that has a proportional relationship to ennui is another 🙃 and it's really not necessary. at all.

(if your answer here is gumroad, smashwords or *shudders* Amazon, way ahead of you and also: no. same goes for etsy, although if i made limited edition art books, i'd consider it).

it can make considering publishing really daunting, because not only is it a sunk cost, it's sunk energy as well. it's like the more you do, the more enervating it becomes.

so seriously, why not just aggregate it, attach that to patreon and paypal, and be done with it.

seriously considering just pushing out all future manuscripts via RSS and blogs, because fuck it

some context:

one of the things i do is write postmodern poems, and experimental prose. this is sort of the equivalent of starting a noise rock band, except there's hardly any crossover and nothing that's actually like Bandcamp, for both technical and cultural reasons.
