I’m bringing back last year’s ridiculous successful and super fun holiday cards with IMPROVEMENTS and MORE ROOM and LESS CHANCE TO MAKE MY HANDS HURT FOR A WEEK. If you missed out on this last year, now is the time to get a one-of-a-kind card from me this holiday season!
This year’s cards now have a 500 word limit instead of 120 words, and they’ll cost you $25 to get one. They are available internationally at no extra cost. All will feature a handwritten note of thanks from me, but this year, the actual story/prompt/fic will be typed and placed inside the card itself. I got to a point last year where I could physically only do a small amount of cards BECAUSE WRITING IS HARD, so I ended up having to turn away a lot of people.
If you’re unfamiliar with what these are, a card purchase gives you the chance to tell me what to write to you. See it as a challenge for me to write fanfiction, flash fiction, motivational letters, or other shenaniganry, and you get a holiday card that is literally one of a kind. It’s a lot of fun for me, too, and it helps ensure I can go home for the holidays and pay my end-of-the-year bills. Please see the full list of instructions and rules in my store, as there are some boundaries I have to set. Otherwise, I am actually excited to write longer pieces for y’all, and goddamn, I need to write more fanfic.
If you have any questions about this, I’ll answer them in the comments, or feel free to email me for more private things! markreadsandwatches at gmail dot com
As was the case last year, you are always welcome to post your cards online so others may see them. Please use the tag “MDSHoliday” for social media so other MDS readers can see them; I’ll also retweet/reblog them as well.
HUZZAH! And thank you so much to all those who supported me last year. I had so much fun that I just HAD to bring these back.
