When I can get back on my feet (If ever), I intend to become an OUCH member.
Of course, as you all know, I can't afford a 25 cent fee at the moment - but when I can, I'M THERE!!!
Depending on how things go - If I do complete my novel depicting the life of a cluster sufferer gone mad (SNAPPED), and in the event I can actually get it published and pressed (right now a pipedream), and it actually sells (Among CHeads I'm sure to get a sale), I plan on donating a portion of proceeds to OUCH - to try and help further public awareness. After all, the whole concept behind this book is to make people aware of this rare disease, and to also try and transform some of the rage, pain and emotional distress I feel on a day to day basis into something constructive - as opposed to destructive. Not to mention if it takes off - it will be my dazzling debut as an author. I have many, many, many ideas for stories and such - but this has to be written first, as it has kind of become a personal thing.
Now if I can only defy the Daniels nature by actually FINISHING what I've started - then all I have to do is worry about getting it printed up. I'm sure once it is in the right hands, the book will sell itself.
