If I were a busker
Would you drop me a dollar
In my cap as it sat
Next to me on the street?
Creative writing is an art form sometimes expressed by individuals who prefer to not perform in public, but the art itself is just as worthy as a performing singer, dancer, or actor.
Although I initially applied the word “donations” to encourage contributions, I prefer to think of the time and effort I apply to writing, and towards the development of the Cadent Words website, as employment. Albeit self-created and self-applied employment, I have and continue to work every day at earning a living with the pieces I’ve written.
I chose to set-up payment options with the Simple Payments Block available through WordPress – the website development host I recently subscribed to.
Payment options at Cadent Words are set in Canadian five-dollar increments. I opted to apply CAD$ because I live and work in Canada, and I chose $5 increments as the minimum dollar amount to ensure that on-line processing and transaction fees were met while allowing a minimal amount to be allotted directly to the author and website developer.
A little bit more about Cadent Words:
All content written, designed, and developed at Cadent Words, is produced by one individual – myself. Albeit conscientiously opting to apply a pen name rather than my personal name to a public domain, Cadence Beret is the sole employer and employee of Cadent Words and all the material produced and published is entirely created by the aforementioned individual – myself (unless otherwise clearly noted or specified).
Lastly, I want to specify that even though I have yet to incur the fees or go through the processes required to register Cadent Words as a business or corporation, I consider and declare the amounts received through Cadent Words as “income” that is generated and applied towards the fees required to maintain the website while also submitting a percentage as “wages” to myself as it is the only form of earnings received from the work I apply myself to daily.
If you have yet to view the website or read any content, please visit cadentwords.com. A website that is still very much in its development phase, I appreciate the viewers’ patience while I continue to strive towards developing a streamlined site allowing ease of access to creative content while offering visually appealing graphics to the written material.
