Lovely article about the Worldbuilders fundraiser, and the stretch goal that Neil Gaiman recorded for us.

This week's charity auctions are ending in about an hour....

Of particular note are the authors, editors, and agents who are offering their services to read and critique unpublished manuscripts.

If you're a writer, you should go check them out. Or if you know a writer who might be interested, you should drop them a line and clue them in.

Auctions start closing at 7:00 CST....

Thanks for helping to spread the word.

It's date night, so Sarah's joining me on tonight's stream for Witcher 3.

I'm going to try and convince her it's a gardening simulator of some kind because of all the herbs I gather.

Yeah. I think I can sell that....

Hey there everybody...

We've just launched this year's Worldbuilders Fundraiser. And after just two days we've already raised more than $120,000.

For a limited time, we have matching money. So every dollar you contribute will be doubled.

Come check it out....
If the world isn't the way you'd like it to be, here's your chance to do something about it.

Might be the last livestream in a while. I'll be doing Q&A, making announcements, and kvetching about the narrative design choices of Witcher 3.

A good time will be had by all.

Worldbuilders has passed 1.7 million dollars.

We are geeks of all creeds and a nations, coming together to make the world a better place.

We are still matching all donations, and we have auctions ending tonight.

Stop by and take a look. Donate. Change the world.

For the first time this year, I'm going to be livestreaming some of my writing on Book Three. You can show up and Watch if that's your idea of a good time....

(P.S. Ignore the subtitle of the stream in the auto-share. It's a writing stream. Trust me.)

Heya Everybody,

I've been doing too much talking lately with the state my cold is in. Too many interviews, podcasts, and livestreams.

Last night I coughed so hard that I worried I tore one of my vocal cords. Went to the ER today and got it checked out.

So tonight I'm going to do a livestream for worldbuilders where I play witcher. But I'm not going to talk at all. Only type in chat and use some pre-written notecards I've prepared.

https://www.twitch.tv/patrickrothfuss/

Want to come be part of this grand experiment? Should be interesting...
