I returned from the 2016 Writer’s Digest Conference in New York City earlier this week with a renewed passion for what I do as a writer. So it only makes sense that I launched a Kickstarter campaign for gloves.
I haven’t gone nuts, but I have created something I call The Writer’s Glove. It’s typing glove meant to keep your hands warm while you write at a keyboard. Unlike fingerless gloves, they are warm, breathable and fit like a second skin from wrist to tip. This allows you to “feel” the keys while you type.
Also, I developed a special grip on the palm and fingers to keep the glove from slipping. Each index fingertip is touchscreen-compatible, too. It’s like the ultimate keyboard glove or writing glove or typing glove or computer glove or however you want to describe it. Just call it The Writer’s Glove.
Here’s a video of The Writer’s Glove in action. Yes, that’s me.
Why am I mentioning this in August, when the heat of NYC during the conference kicked off an energy usage record? Because I want to get my skunkworks creation to the next level. That’s where the Kickstarter campaign comes in. I’m looking for $2,500, and I explain why on the campaign page. I sure would appreciate your support.
Kickstarter? Can’t I Just Buy the Gloves?
I Thought You Were the Weapons Guy
I still am, and this doesn’t mean I’m backing away from writing. It means that my creative streak isn’t limited to the written word.
I also plan to host a webinar of the presentation I gave at the Writer’s Digest Conference, 10 Things No One Told You About Writing Weapons in Fiction, for those who couldn’t attend. More details on that soon.
