I’m reasonably sure that someone donated $10 in my name to the NaNo site. I have acquired a halo and my name’s on the donation page.
‘scool. I’m grateful for it. But I’d love to know who did it, so I can thank you properly. So if you’re reading this and you’re the one, drop me a pm or post in the comments here or something. (Also so I don’t think that I’ve misplaced my mind and done it myself, which I know I haven’t.)
Edited mid-morning Thursday: the person who donated has contacted me, and I’ll thank them here as well as privately. Thank you. It is people like you who keep NaNo up when people like me don’t have two dimes to rub together. It’s people like you that make me reaffirm the fact that some day, when I have a steady job and money, I’m going to donate big to Nano. Not ten bucks, not fifty. I say here, in plain english, and anyone who sees this can hold me to it, but when I am older and employed and can afford both food and rent/bills in my place, and have a nice little cushion for when I go back to being staggeringly unemployed – I will donate more than a thousand dollars to NaNo. I’m thinking that that will probably be around the 20th anniversary, which seems fitting.
