Volunteer Notes; update:
by Goura Fotadar (The Fictional VolunTier Project, and its capacity…)
(A Quickly Written Experiencing of My Experience)


I’m reaching that point where I could almost be experiencing stress. My own projects are cost-free at this point; but one project I am working on for an organization is one that costs money as in requiring sponsorship. Though I am in the process now going on about three weeks of working on procuring my next sponsor; this is a long waiting time; and the project is, I hope only, temporarily stalled. This experience is almost stressful for me. Not to mention that my birthday is coming up and though I do not need or think of this day as anything significant; the concept of little or few breaks or rest or vacation times, and living without an income and what that means in terms of freedom; all so that I can follow some “made-up” ethic about working a lot for no money; is all coming to a head; well, almost; I mean coming to a head can potentially turn into something positive or progressive or constructive or all; but in the waiting period it is just that: almost stressful. I don’t know how I do it?

In addition, should I include my fiction writing in The FVP or at least mention it here; I make no money on it thus far; and it does also take a lot of my time; for example right now, I am behind on two projects at least in this capacity. But certainly writing fiction and/or poetry for free does not mean that you are volunteer. However, there are of course “actual” volunteer projects going on independently, and without an income (by me)!
