Missed the target

Ah well, I'd feel like I suck, but AE's in the same boat. And if she's in the boat with me, then it's a low tide for everyone. egads, that's some bad writing there... I'm leaving the target as-is, so we only need to meet $30 next week to get a chapter on Saturday. If we can't do that, then I really DO suck.

Just in case I suck enough that no one wants to donate, but not so much that no one wants any more extra chapters, there are still marketing targets to do. The closest one is always highlighted on the right, and currently that's the Pages Unbound one. Six more reviews and we get an extra chapter.

Stuff: I'm going to work on a world map. I'm a writer, not a cartographer, but I'm going to give it a bash. It'll be ugly in any event because I don't have a scanner.

Question: Do we need a wiki?

I would totally donate if I weren't so poor, maybe next weekend when I get paid. I will try and do a review on PU as soon as I figure out how. As for a wiki, I don't think you need one, but if you and the other fans want it, go for it.
Just curious, what are you going to use to make the map. I did a map for a D&D game I'm running and drew one up free hand using colored pencils. I've updated it since them using a proper paint program. Easier to update with info the chars run across while playing.

Believe me, we're in the same boat as all y'all. That's why I have the marketing targets, so people can help when they can't donate. I need to find a good "tell a friend" module so people can refer friends to the site--a "tell a friend" that won't be abused.

I've been telling the kids to get ready for hard times--not just for us, but for everyone. Peak oil, or a nifty little rehearsal for it, is here. Food prices are going through the roof because of it, and frankly, I don't know how we're going to heat the house in the winter (oil heat). So this year we're gardening--focusing on raising as much of our own food as we can. We already have four chickens and may get a fifth. The car stays in the driveway most days. We're lucky we can do these things.

I wish I could donate more frequently but we're in the process of moving so money is crazy tight right now! I still love your story and I tell people about it all the time, so hopefully that's helping a little! I don't really that a wiki is necessary but I agree with D, if you and other fans want it then go for it!

I just posted my review on PU. I hope I didn't sound too much like a fanboy or like I'm trying not too sound like one. Oh well, just my little contribution.

I just went on a bit of a review bender and posted reviews on almost all of the works on PU which I follow, including of course AIHotGK.

That popped me up to 13th on the "hottest story" countdown, which I'd feel badly about, except that several of the stories above mine have only one or two glowing reviews from friends and I now have 16 honest ones. Well, 15 honest ones and one glowing one from my best friend. :evil:

If you do the sensible thing and ignore any story with just one or two reviews for the ranking, AIHotGK ends up 8th or so. And as far as I am concerned, that's very well-deserved indeed, and nothing to feel badly about.
