Kickstarter has basically turned into an online street corner where net hobos stand around holding cardboard signs and beg for money.

I need to finish my book of four zombie novellas . . . It's half-written, but because I'm trying to work two other writing jobs (that pay stuff like rent and food) right now, I need help to allow me the time to get 'er done.

In other words, "I want you to give me money so I can quit my job and just hang out doing the stuff that I want to do."

P.S.: we're past peak zombie

A thousand bucks for time to write something, and then two hundred bucks in miscellaneous?  I understand if it's for airfare, table rental, etc...but a thousand bucks to write something?  What the holy hell?

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand..... I actually went back and clicked on the link. Those sound like awful story ideas. Zombies are played out. Fund a bottom of the barrel zombie project?

Wow, for the first time on Fark, I agree with every post before mine.

Your pathetic begging is truly a unifying force.

But essentialy done in one.

Epic? Fark you.

There are 3 things that qualify as 'epic'.

The works of Homer
The ocean
Space

Also, zombies suck.

I've opened a kickstarter to help me finish this post.

I'm not asking for much just $600.00 to cover the...

I've written several novels. I only came on FARK to post when I was running my freebie promos.

KickStarer. Meh. The jingling panhandler can of the intrawebs.

Thanks! I gave away a pretty good number to my fellow Farkers earlier this year and have often wondered how well they were received. The kind words are much appreciated!

My guess is it's more like a moral support thing. You know, sending positive vibes their way.

Do people really think anyone's falling for the whole "I've got this friendwho needs money!" gambit?

You're begging for money so you can fark around and do what you wanna do. Own it, subby.

Typing on a keyboard doesn't cost money.

Bingo! Any half serious writer knows you plant you arse on that seat and type till you drop. Get up, sip coffee, do it again. that's how it works.
