Crowdfunding? Micropatronage? Eff that Noise!

If I have to work, sister, then so should you.  This is such unadulterated bullshit that I have nothing else to say on the matter other than this: if this person couldn't get the book done by the deadline, she shouldn't have agreed to do it in the first place.  I pity her family.

I agree though you have to give her credit for attempting it.

For some reason, this was incredibly irksome to me. I've heard of "micropatronizing" a blog, but that doesn't bother me nearly as much because doing so ensures that a blogger can provide a daily service. "Micropatronizing" a novelist doesn't ensure the novel will actually be finished, doesn't ensure that the novel will be good, and doesn't ensure that the novel will sell. I can't believe she made over $6,000--I could live on that for MONTHS.
