And the MMM fundraiser is OVER! Thanks everyone for participating. We raised over 300 dollars! woot woot. For those who donated, you’ll get to read the monstrosity after Matt corrects all his typos.
(Ok, that’s not really a picture of Matt.)
Want to make ML Matt Miserable?
He tends to write the same kind of story every year – literary fiction with a really depressing ending. Usually involving a lot of death, most of the time self-inflicted. And people seem to want to force him to write something different.
So let’s make a fundraiser out of it.
He’s game. He will write a 50,000-word novel during NaNoWriMo according to whatever is decided out of this fundraiser. Now, he’s going to write at least two novels this year – his personal one AND this one. And everyone who donates will get to read this novel (after he fixes his inevitable typos.)
Here’s how this is going to work:
First, leave a comment on this post with what you want to pick. First come first serve. Be sure to leave your email address when filing out the form.
Then, Matt will leave a comment to confirm with you and update the status on what you picked to “pending” and put it in italics. He will also try to email you as well, so put your real email down. He will only use it for purposes of this and will promptly forget it afterward.
Next, within three days of Matt’s confirmation of your initial comment, make the donation, filling in “nanolanta” as the “CampNano, Script Frenzy, NaNoWriMo username” for your donation.
Then, forward the receipt to donations @nanolanta.org Once confirmed, this post will be updated and the option struck out.
This process seems odd, but we want to make sure people don’t end up donating two plots when he can only write one of them. So a little redundancy will be useful here. If you have questions, leave a comment.
This will close on October 23rd at 5:00pm eastern time. If plot, characters, setting and ending aren’t picked – Matt gets to pick. And we don’t really want that to happen, do we?
Genre – $10 to eliminate one choice
Donate 10 dollars to eliminate one genre. Matt will write the last genre standing. If there is more than one left over, he will pick one he thinks goes well with the plot.
Erotic Fiction Fantasy
Horror and Supernatural Literary Fiction
Religious, Spiritual and New Age Romance
Science Fiction Satire, Humor and Parody
Young Adult and Youth
- Mystery, Thriller and Suspense was eliminated by the BattleJesus Drawing.
Characters – $25 for main, $10 for secondary.
Matt will email you a character sheet to fill out about your character. We’ll limit the number of main characters to three. He’ll take however many secondary characters are donated!
- Main Character 3
Main Character 1 Main Character 2
Minor Character 1 Minor Character 2 Minor Character 3
- Minor Character 4 (pending – quintopia)
Plot – $25 for 5ish sentence plot description. $10 for plot twist/subplot
Matt will ask for a five-sentence general plot description (he will need SOME room to maneuver for Genre, Ending, Setting purposes.) He’ll take up to five subplots.
- Subplot #1
- Subplot #2
- Subplot #3
- Subplot #4
- Subplot #5
Plot Ending – $50 This is your chance to make Matt write a happy ending. Or you could donate to make him happy aka writing a sad ending. Ending
Setting – $25 Have a setting in mind? Matt will email the donator a setting sheet to fill out. Setting
