In September of 2009, I got an email from Athenae asking if I’d like to write for First Draft. I figured Scout recommended me so I agreed with alacrity. For better or worse, I’m still here but, more importantly, so are our core readers. Y’all must not have anything better to do with your free time.
On a more serious note, I’ve loved my time at First Draft and they’ll have to drag me kicking and screaming out of here. In short, I’m here to stay. I think we have a terrific combination of writers right now. We don’t always agree but we respect one another’s writing and the intelligence of our audience. I may pun relentlessly but I never talk down to our readers.
Not long ago, a friend of mine dubbed me the king of regular features. He’s right and I know that most of you like them too. (I say most because there’s bound to be a heretic in the crowd.) So, if you like Album Cover Art Wednesday, Pulp Fiction Thursday, Friday Catblogging, Saturday Odds & Sods, and/or the Sunday Morning Video, please click here to learn more about donating. I don’t want to have to go into traffic to raise money but I’ll do it if I have to. First Draft means that much to me.
Ever since I saw Athenae’s fundraising drive post atop the blog, I’ve had the Cars classic Drive in my head:
Since this post is all about the fundraising drive, let’s pass the First Draft collection plate and give you another chance to DONATE.
