Urgent and ridiculous plea for donations

It's urgent because I only have until the 23rd and it's ridiculous because it's for perfume funds. I'm only semi-kidding when I say that BPAL inspires me. It definitely gets me in the writing mood.

BPAL does what they call Lunacies every month, a limited edition release of scents that are on sale for just three days, keyed to the next month's full moon. This month's Lunacy also coincides with the last of her Lupercalias, the big Valentines update. I already desperately want a bottle of Passionate Shepherd, and that's getting ordered regardless. And luckily this month's Lunacy isn't one I'm interested in. But Beth, the creature, put up two that I really want badly, April Fool and Neya's Day, er, Beltane 2008. (And we won't even discuss the Tiki blends she just put out, with some of my favorite scent notes evar. I want all of them, it's killin' me. But I've got till late April to decide/save up for those.)

Anyway, if you like the story, kick me some perfume money!! please! Smile

so this "provoke the author" thing seems to have been successful.

I'm writing like mad just in case you guys actually come up with $55 by midnight tomorrow night. The hubby is not happy with me. Smile

possibly also "the love?"

is that we make a lot more money off our other online properties--a LOT more, like nearly half our family income. They're more conventional, and we've been developing them for nearly ten years in one case. Time spent here means time not spent there.

But this is where my heart is right now, and he's as supportive of that as he can be. He worries about my health and about me tiring myself out. I have not been in the best of shape the last couple of years.

That said! I wouldn't have made the commitment if I didn't think I could come through. This story is more or less written in my head; I'm already on to plotting out the next one. Temmin's next story is plotted, but the story-in-story is not other than the title and where I want to go with it. The story and story-in-story after that are much more plotted out, then there's a huge gaping maw until the final story in the set, which is halfway written already. There are going to be ten stories in all, I think. Temmin's stories will be sequential, but the stories-in-story will jump around in time.
