As difficult as that post was to write, there was something liberating about letting go of my pride and just admitting that I was over my head. And your donations really crystallized something for me; I'm working for you, now, in a way that I wasn't before. Writing sometimes feels like a bit of a cry in the wilderness, but you have inspired me as well as helped me. Yesterday I finished up the climactic chapter of one of the projects I mentioned; this weekend I hope to write the last chapter of it. With any luck I'll be able to tell you more about it very soon. Just to be able to focus on writing without being distracted by money worries is a pleasure that I owe to you guys.
