A few days ago, my husband said yes, and he made me the happiest woman on earth. No, it wasn’t a proposal. It can’t be. We’re already married. But it was something wonderful.
He said yes to me going to Paris.
As a stay-at-home mom, taking care of my sweet and funny 3-year old daughter always comes first, and writing always comes second, but when an opportunity to attend a Writers Workshop in Paris (one that I’ve been dreaming about for the last 2 years) comes along, I have to grab it. Thanks to my dear husband and to my super mother-in-law for agreeing to babysit my daughter while I chase my dream of becoming a published writer.
So yes, I am going to Paris this June for a limited time and on a limited budget. The plan is to attend a Writers Workshop and finish writing my second novel, which takes place in the City of Light. But I need a little more support, which is why I created my small writing campaign in Indiegogo, called, Poetry for Paris.
Poetry for Paris is my writing campaign to help raise funds to make my writing trip happen. The idea is I will write you a poem, as a thank you for helping. But that’s not all you can get…
What do you get for helping?
Well, there are quite a few perks for supporting Poetry for Paris. Depending on the amount of your pledge, I could write a poem, especially for you, and/or you could receive a copy of my favorite movie, Midnight in Paris, plus the soundtrack, and/or I can name a character in my book after you!
Check out my campaign and pick your perk!
Thank you for your support, whether it’s word of mouth or a pledge.
Once in a while, we have to take risks in order to get to where we want to go. This is mine.
