I’m giving away 20 free e-copies of “Blind”. Keep reading to find out how/why I would be so cray.
I’m one of those bleeding heart do-good types. So there is no surprise to those who know me that I would write a short story and then donate the royalties from that project to a charity that supports young artists.
Sure I could just give money directly to charity (and often do), but the great thing about writing a story AND donating is that I have a chance to humanize the issue and generate awareness.
Some people might argue that there are better causes: the whales, child abuse, poverty, cancer and so on.
I don’t know about you but creativity and writing saved my life. Coming from a really dark background/childhood, my creativity and imagination provided me with the hope that a better world, or a better life existed than the one I’d been given. And if that creativity had been squashed rather than fostered, I don’t know that I would have survived my environment. So I believe this cause is important and feel so grateful that I've come far enough to be a position to support it.
I chose The Dreaming Zebra Foundation as the recipient of the royalties from “Blind”, and you can learn more about TDZF here and here.
So, now for the good stuff! In order to get your free copy of “Blind” gifted to you, you need only do the following:
Post a comment in the section below, answering the following question: If you had an art-related superpower, what would it be?
I would want to have power over paper, so I could make anything out of it. ANYTHING, be it huge buildings, shields, flying machines, etc. You name it. I would just need a sheet of paper. And really, when I think about it, I may already have this power. ;)
Now it's your turn. First 20 comment-ers (err, commentators?) win.
