In conjunction with NaNoWriMo I am launching a project called Jackass Letters: Governors and Premiers where I intend to write all 70 governors and premiers of these United States and Canada and their territories. If you are at all familiar with my site you have some idea of what these letters will be like. If you’re not familiar then I would suggest you go check out jackassletters.com before enabling my stupidity.
Don’t say you weren’t warned.
Basically, I strive to make the world a better place one letter at a time. I say the things you think, but could never bring yourself to say, and I think of things you never could (some have gone so far as to suggest my brain is broken). These letters will be both entertaining and educational. Together we will learn about government and geography and politicians and counting! (Some of these politicians deserve praise and some scorn and I intend to heap on big servings of both.) All letters will be dropped in the mail on January 1, 2012. At the end of April we’ll see who’s written back and who hasn’t. I’m setting the target of this fundraiser low since I want this to happen no matter what, but the more money raised the cooler I will make this project. That’s a promise!
If I raise enough to cover postage and office supplies then the letters and replies will go out to a specially created mailing list. If you are more generous I’ll create an ePub and get some of those ISBNs things I keep hearing about and throw digital copies up on whatever service is trendy next year. Enough cash and I’ll commission a cover illustration by the talented Anthony Imperioli (@mindofchester). It’s up to you really. You decide how cool you want this project to be and give accordingly.
