Goals
$411 of $600 per month
This would allow us to take a reduced role in our "real jobs" and dedicate another entire day per week towards the dream of literature. It would also mean Adrian could afford the internet. That would, you know, really speed up the process. Or, if you could wink and eliminate mountains of student loan debt, that would work too.
