Hey all! Promo posts!
I run Thoughty at briecs.com & fund all of the interviews, game design, & articles thru Patreon.com/briecs. This right now is my only consistent income, & takes a lot of time. Thoughty has over 200 interviews!
I do game design, consulting, & editing, and you can find my work history and rates here: briecs.com/p/my-work.html. I consult on queerness, disability/chronic pain, gender identity (nonbinary, masculine), and mental illness (bipolar disorder, anxiety, PTSD).
