So, this entry is going to be a little different than my usual entries, and I feel humiliated for even doing it.
As you all know, I’m a writer, editor, and I do graphics/book covers. I also run A Million and One Magazine where we support and showcase other authors. Unfortunately, as of yet, none of those things pay the bills, which requires me have a full time job.
I had one of those until last week, when I had to have a wisdom tooth pulled. I guess they thought I was lying or something, and the next day they “let me go”. Before you tell me I could fight that because it’s bullshit, I can’t. I live in Louisiana – A “No Fault State”. What that means is, they can fire you if they don’t like your shoes and there’s nothing you can do.
I’m going jump right into the point here. I’ve reached rock bottom. I’m on the verge of eviction, the one car that gets us to work is going to be repossessed by next week, there is no food in my house, my electricity is getting cut off by tomorrow if I don’t pay the bill, and my bank account is overdrawn by several hundred dollars… twice. It’s shameful, but I’m an honest person, and that’s the honest truth. I literally don’t even have any toilet paper right now. Laugh if you want to.
I’m going to post my PayPal link. I hate asking for handouts and I’m not doing so now, though any little bit helps. I will work for anything. As I said before, I do book covers, editing, graphics, and hell, I’ve even recently started researching and querying agents for people, and I’m devoted. I’m also desperate, which is why I’m writing this blog.
