#AMWRITING, A COLLECTION OF LETTERS TO BENEFIT THE WAYNE FOUNDATION
Knowing what you know now of writing, publishing, and putting your art out into the world, if you could go back to the day you sat down to start typing in your very first manuscript, what words would you offer to yourself? Words of encouragement? Words of advice? Caution against certain pitfalls? Would you change anything about how you got to where you are today?
The publishing community is so much bigger than it was before the self-publishing boom and it continues to grow exponentially every day. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with a handbook or support group. #AmWriting is a collection of letters written by authors from all different corners of the publishing community. The letters provide words of encouragement or advice to those just starting out or those who have become discouraged in their art. At Pure Textuality PR, we believe in supporting each other as a community, and we felt this project would be a good way to bring writers together and maybe give some new artists just the right nudge to keep going.
100% of the net proceeds of #AmWriting will be donated to The Wayne Foundation, a charity dedicated to offering aid and services to young women victimized by illegal sexual exploitation and the sexual trafficking of minors. For more information about The Wayne Foundation, you can visit them on the web at http://waynefdn.org.
SEE JACK LOSE HIS SHIT
‘See Jack Lose His Shit’ is actually just a title I slapped on there to give this little story a name. When trying to think of a heading to file it under, and given the name of the main character, all I could think of was the ‘I am Jack’s ____’ books that the main character read in Fight Club. It made me giggle, so I have been internally calling it ‘See Jack Lose His Shit’ ever since.
The story is actually an untitled creepy little tale I co-wrote with Laura from Little Read Riding Hood for the All Hallows Eve Indie Blog Tour around Halloween 2013. After chatting with Laura, I got permission to also post this here on my site. It’s only about 1,800 words and takes about 5 minutes to read.
So without further ado, ‘See Jack Lose His Shit’. Hope you like it!
