Let’s face it: it’s going to be a crapper of a holiday season any way you slice it, but when the economic climate is stormy for the general population, it’s a goddamn tornado for fiction writers. A tornado that will never blow itself out, I guess—or maybe it should be a hurricane. A really big hurricane, or maybe strange isolated tornados attracted only to struggling writers. Metaphors like this keep struggling writers struggling, and they need your help, now more than ever.
Right now there’s a writer struggling, and s/he needs a story. Will you help?
