For those of you not familiar with the concept, Sweet Charity is a fandom effort to support various charities in which people willing to sell their skills (affectionately known as "Ho's," for obvious reasons!) put themselves on the auction block. Buyers who want to take advantage of those skills bid on them, and the winning bidder gets what s/he wants from the Ho. The proceeds of the auction go not to the Ho, but to the charity designated as the beneficiary. This time around, that is the Writers Guild Foundation Industry Support Fund, which provides assistance to people in financial distress because of the writers' strike. That being a cause near and dear to my heart, I couldn't fail to pick my pencil up while certain other pencils have to remain down.
I've put myself on the block to do a 900+ word Supernatural story. Winning bidder provides the prompt, I write to the length required to make the story happen. Angst, humor, hurt/comfort, mystery, terror, love, wee!chesters -- winning bidder calls the mood and the tune. I'm a canon writer and I can't write what I don't believe in, so I don't do character slash, but apart from that -- I'm a Ho!
Wanna be a Ho yourself? Wanna bid on me when the auction starts? Visit the Sweet Charity website and learn all about it. If you're here on LJ and want to be alerted when the auction starts (which will be 18 through 26 January 2008), you might want to watch the LJ community sweetcharityhoThis isn't limited to Supernatural fandom, by the way: you can find Ho's doing other fandom fic, videos, graphics, and whatnot, or become a Ho yourself offering multiple fandoms, if you wish. I'm sticking with Supernatural even though I've written a little in others over the years simply because I write where my mind and heart are, and we all know where that is these days.
And if you're really interested and determined, start thinking about what you'd like to have me write ...
