I received an email from Paypal to say that someone had given me a donation to keep writing. The message from the donor read:
Write more often, and hopefully at the the quality of this past week. And no comment does not mean no appreciation. kvd
To say that I was pleased would be an understatement. I beamed. I put the donation tag up on the blog with the thought that it might help me do what I really wanted to do, to research and write as an independent full time voice.
It's not just the money. It's the appreciation. Thank you KVD.
