Starving Artist Fund

Yay! I want to thank everyone who has contributed to the starving artist fund. Especially the sweety Nevaeh who has given more than once.

The money is used to support the artistic habit. Which means it will probably go to paint or other materials.

Yay! Thanks for all the help!

Secret Revealed

Like a monk I am still wholly involved with my project. I guess I'll let the monkey out of the trunk and let everyone know that I'm writing a book.

I have written 144 pages so far. I have a goal of around 360 pages but depending on where the story takes me it might be shorter or it might be longer, but I think it will be at the very least 300 pages.

Because I know people are curious, questions always rise up like the foam from a glass of root beer. Unfortunately, I can't answer these questions because the contract I signed with my muse states that he will leave if I do. (Contract negotiations with the Guild of Muses are very tricky.)

Here is a list of some of those questions:

What is your book about?
Can I read what you have done so far?
Can I give you a suggestion?
Why are you writing about that?

Since I am following monk-like habits I think I will end with a quote from a nun.

"To be successful, the first thing to do is to fall in love with your work."
