Special offer for the $10 pledge

Hi guys,

Special offer for those who donate $10 or more dollars.

You’ll receive an e-book bundle of four short stories.

That’s it, basically.

A gift for those who choose to donate and help me with my medical treatment.

So, if you’d like to help me out, you can donate $10 via PayPal here.

Of course, you can send as much as you like, if you can afford it and are willing to.

Also, you can purchase reblogs here. Advertising here. And signed paperbacks here.

Still $800

 

Still $800 needed for the next part of the treatment.

I need your help, guys. Can’t do this without your help.

I want to have a normal life, and enjoy it. To eat proper food. To be able to smile.

And I can’t do this without your help.

Eight hundred dollars needed to raise.

We can do this. I know we can.

If everyone who reads this post donated $10, we’d have the money by tomorrow. Only $10.

Like I always say, little by little becomes a lot.

I need this treatment as soon as possible. This stage is important. I need to get the bridge done, so I don’t risk breaking the fiber glass implants. I need your help.

So, if you’d like to help me out, you can donate $10 via PayPal here.

Of course, you can send as much as you like, if you can afford it and are willing to.

Also, you can purchase reblogs here. Advertising here. And signed paperbacks here.

Being a writer is hard

Jessica Bakkers

In no other career does ‘going to work’ depend on having the muse Calliope descend and bless you with inspiration (okay, artists everywhere are afflicted with this too).

Yet ask most laypeople their opinion of writers and you’ll get a hazy hybrid of JK Rowling and a hobo. We’re either a few days away from publishing The Next Big Thing, or a few days away from destitution (yes, I know which analogy better suits).

Few other careers require an explanation or long-winded speech following the epitaph “I’m a [insert career here]”, yet should you utter “I’m a writer” you’re likely have to jump through the following hoops;

“Oh yeah? What have you written?” Prove it.

“No I mean what books have you written?” Because a writer only writes books.

“Do you make any money doing it?” Doubtful.

“Can I read something?” Let’s be clear, I don’t want to buy something…

Eight hundred

First off, let me start by thanking Lisa and Frank for their donations.

Now…

Eight hundred.

That’s the amount missing right now.

This is how I look.

I do not want to look like this. To say that I am self-conscious would be an understatement. To say that I look like a monster, over dramatizing. I just don’t feel like going out of the house, being seen by people. It is difficult to look people in the eye.

I want to have a normal life, and enjoy it. To eat proper food. To be able to smile.

And I need your help to do this.

Eight hundred dollars needed to raise.

We can do this. I know we can.

What I learned in five years of blogging

Five years. Five years of daily blogging. Five years since I decided to never give up, no matter what. To keep writing, to keep blogging, to just keep at it for as long as it took.

And what a ride it has been. Around the world, indeed. 200 or so countries. Lots and lots of people, lots and lots of stories… Continue reading
