This “blog”…this series of short stories began just about three years ago. You have no idea how thankful I am to have found an audience for my nasty writing habit. Now, however, it comes time to use a word that I adore…evolution.
- the process by which different kinds of living organism are believed to have developed from earlier forms during the history of the earth.
- the gradual development of something.“the forms of written languages undergo constant evolution”
There is another step that I recently experienced a taste of, that needs to be taken.
I have not asked anything of you before, and appreciate all of what you have given. The step from writing hobbyist to professional has taken awhile…not quite there, yet, but this is the direction. This is the time, however, your help is requested.
The plan is to get myself and @strandedgf to Eroticon 14 in Bristol, UK.
Okay…we need to go. Atlanta, Eroticon USA, was such a fantastic experience but, in its first year, is but a fraction of what the conference in Bristol is. The chance of meeting agents, networking with other writers, and bringing this little ‘ole blog to another level is simply an opportunity too big for me not to take…and the results to which you will enjoy.
Now, however, begins the hard part…funding the trip.
Not an easy task when flights alone are potentially more than a grand each in Canuck dollars (600 GBP plus at current exchange rates). Also…and this is a big complaint…there are no direct flights from Billy Bishop Airport (Toronto Island) to Bristol!
We demand this be fixed by March and that they drop the flight cost to a more reasonable $10 Canadian dollars.
Okay…better odds of winning the lotto than that one.
However, thanks to one of my Twitter friends, Molly’s Daily Kiss, we have a way that with your help we may be able to pull this off.
Full disclosure, we have aimed our goal high and here are the reasons:
- Flights Toronto to Bristol
- Hotels in Bristol
- A new laptop…working off an ancient Macbook these days which is great, but very old
- And there are further details I cannot share as of yet…but be watching these pages the day we lift off for Bristol and, with the way the plan is developing, all will be revealed.
Anything would help and be greatly appreciated. Due to schedules and potential of price fluctuations, I am truly hoping to have this all set up by early January if possible, so please do not wait…two months is not a long time. Think of it as a holiday gift even.
As time goes on, you will be able to follow the preparations and the pending trip as I document my progress.
As always, thanks to my readers. Knowing you read and sometimes even appreciate what I write makes it all worth it. I always had the want to write in me, but to find this audience…to find you…you have no idea what it means to me.
Thanks for reading…more to follow.
