Pause for Breath

Following an extremely generous donation, I feel confident to say that I will not be forced out of my home at the end of this month.  I have enough to pay my rent.

If anyone wants to know how I'm feeling just now, I'd have to answer with this similar experience:

So for those who are worried about me, we all have another month.  I find now that I want to apologize; it's an hormonal reaction to extraordinary kindness . . . and it is made harder because I still have to ask for small donations in exchange for Ternketh Keep and the preview to my book that is only five and a half weeks away (the full book still looks like late May, barring any unforeseen problems).

Just now I feel shy and overwhelmed.  Thank you again for everyone who has helped me, with donations and with spreading the word on their own blogs and twitter feeds.

Small world. Amanda Palmer is married to Neil Gaiman.

Whaaaa ...?

Okay, my world is officially fucked up.

I stand by all that I've said. Knowing they're married raises my respect for Gaiman considerably; but he should still have trashed those last two rules.
