Each of us is excited about the prospect of having the means to do for this project what we need to do! And we thank you - each of our backers - for bringing us yet closer to our goal. Immediately following our last update, $170 came-a-rollin' in! Now, twenty days into our fifty day fundraiser, we're up to a robust $480. Almost half way there! Thank you, y'all (Virginia is settling into my dialect!): you're not only backers, but you've become a network, as well. Thank you for extending yourselves.
So here's where we're at:
Nate is dabbing the finishing touches onto his essay, recently inserting images to augment some of what his witty, unique, well-researched and articulate essay shows.
Courtney is revising her 20+ poems (she's an obsessive reviser! It's no thang for her to revise 100 times), and she is nearly finished writing her personal essay designed to offset Nate's more scholarly pursuit.
Shane is sequencing his images, experimenting with differing image sizes and how different sizes juxtaposed speak an alternative language to that of uniformly sized images. He also needs to reduce the number of images to include... AKA, he's gots'ta break it off with some his darlings!
If anyone you know has expressed interest in donating, please send a reminder. If you have anyone in mind you know this project may pique, send a quick message. If each one of you is able to find one interested person, I believe we'll be very close by the time of our next update. But I do want to stress one thing: you've already done way more for us than we could ever hope, so please: only extend yourself if it is something you'd be excited to do, OK?
Again, thanks to all of you! We are so grateful to have friends and family who show an interest in what we do.
Shane, Courtney, Nate, and Corey
