Hello all. I really suck at this kind of thing, so bear with me.
After a good deal of thinking, I've decided that I would really really love to attend the Office of Letters and Light's A Night of Writing Dangerously.
And I need your help.
To attend, I need to raise at least $250 and fast, it goes to a good cause, which rules. But I also hate just asking people to give money with nothing to offer in return.
So here's my thinking: by the end of this year, I will have written thirteen novels, some of which have actual potential. I hope to have one of them edited into a coherent novella by the end of next February.
I'm not normally the kind to self publish, but I will promise a copy of my first edited book to anyone who donates more than $2.00 to the Office of Letters and Light through my fundraising page. I don't know if this offer is an incentive or not, but I want to give something back to all those who help support the OLL and get me a seat at the most coveted of events, at least coveted by me.
Thank you all for your support, monetary or no. This has been one of the best years of my life, and I am grateful for every moment.
If you want to take me up on my offer, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org after donating.

Donated. Michelle get some of that writing out there. What a waste keeping it all to yourself. Looking forward to the first one anyway.
Wow. Seriously, holy crap. Thank you so much for your generosity and your encouragement! You made me shed a tear of overwhelmed happiness today, and I’m so very grateful.
As soon as something is readable, I will be sending you a copy. Hell, I feel like I should let you choose which one you want to read!
I’d love to go to that but it’s not an option right now so I sent a few dollars to help you on your way. Enjoy!
Thank you so much! I know it’s not easy to get there, but this year it just feels right. I’ll make sure to blog all about it! And if you want to read what I can make of one of these novels, I will be honored to share.
