Yesterday I wrote:
I have been solicited for a 3000-4000 word essay for an academic book on RPGs and other evolving storytelling structures. Once authors sign on and submit abstracts, this would be pitched to MIT Press for nonprofit publication. Since they cannot pay me and my minimum word rate is 4c/word, I cannot currently do this.
If you make a donation this month in an amount ending in .04 , or any other donation that you mention in the comments to this post, I will apply it towards scheduling this project.
Fastest I’ve ever been paid for an RPG-related assignment. I have a bit over $150 of tagged donations in my paypal account, so I’ll tell them I’m accepting the project. I’ll update you further when I’ve posted the abstract and later the paper itself on merin.hitherby.com.
