Everybody in the world except me is going to RWA in New York this coming weekend. I had a brief flight of madness this morning where I thought “CROWDFUNDING! I can offer to write “Kiss of Angels”–Grace’s story–for a crowdfunded ticket to New York!”
Except, well, y’know, I’d have to scare up the cash by Thursday, and I’ve already run two crowdfunded projects this year (the Old Races Short Story Project is still open, you know! Teasers for stories two (a Janx story) and three (a Biali story) are available! (the first link has a teaser for the first story, a djinn story, in it :)), and arranging that significant of babysitting requires more than four days’ notice, and and and and anyway, obviously that would all be madness.
…it might be worth considering for next year, though. Not necessarily RWA, but maybe crowdfunding a couple plane tickets to 2 or 3 cons in locations with the highest potential for seeing the largest number of people…(x-posted from the essential kit)
