Brian's Writing Laptop Campaign
This was a simple campaign to help raise enough money to get a laptop, preferably a MacBook ($1599-1799) primarily for writing purposes, especially for National Writing Month which is coming in November. It is also to help fund getting some Mac software, Scrivener 2 ($45) and Vellum ($250), to further enable the writing end goal. The extra money ($200 approx if $2,000 is raised) is to cover fees.
The goal was to have the funds before November 2017.
I have detailed more of this on my blog post about this, and why a MacBook over a PC, why I want it, etc. See this blog post for FAR more details on the full extent of this campaign: Brian's Writing Laptop Campaign an Explanation.
Examples of my stories are at The Collected Writing Prompts of Brian A Thomas.
Falling short of the goal, likely means no laptop, but perhaps the Windows version of Scrivener ($40) for now, and amounts over that but below the goal would depend on needs at the time but might be saved for future writing uses.
Money specified for other needs, car repairs, medical needs, etc would be used for those, but if nothing is specified, then it goes to the laptop, with any unlikely overflow going to those needs.
