I have this plan, it involves $60,000, or, as I like to call it,
With 60 Gs, I could live without working for 2 years, not really changing much about my current lifestyle. With 2 years, I thoroughly and honestly believe that I could make something (
Sure, skeptics and rationalists will reason, "Why do you need 60 Gs? Shouldn't half that, or a quarter of that, be sufficient to support you for two years, with a few lifestyle changes?" And the truth is, yes, it would be sufficient... and I'm willing to barter if someone is trying to strike a deal. As long as I'm making demands, I might as well start at the status quo. And realistically, 60 Gs is NOT that much! People buy art at
The truth is, there are hundreds if not thousands of people in Seattle alone who have this kind of money sitting, completely uselessly, in bank accounts, being spent every day on useless items of luxury. The fact that this could completely change my life, and hopefully produce something greater than anything these richie rich kids will ever produce (yes, I discarded modesty a while ago concerning this topic... it's the truth!), it kills me!
At the same time that I beg like this, I know that, in the end, whether or not I get this money, I'll still be able to get the end result, God willing and weather permitting. Life would be too cruel to turn otherwise. Nevertheless, my focus on 60 Magical Gs does not abate, and continues to be a thought in the forefront of my attention at least one or two minutes a day. Some days, like today, I think about it for hours.
So, if you know anyone, or are someone, who is willing to spare 60 Gs, not as a loan but as an investment in a person who has an over-inflated sense of their own potential to contribute to the world of literature, please contact
This stuff cannot wait.
