Fantasy for Footholds

A personal campaign sponsored by Laura VanArendonk Baugh


There's a lot going on right now, things are bleak, and while escaping into a fantasy world looks very attractive, it can also feel very weak and selfish. How can I hide in the safety of a world I control while hospitals and evacuation routes are bombed, while parents drop their children off at a refugee station and then leave them behind as they return to fight? Who am I to sit comfortably at my desk while all that happens?

I'm a worldbuilder, that's who I am. And it's time we build a better world.

We need story as footholds in a treacherous time. Escapism is not always a bad thing; it can be relief and rest before we venture back out into the fight. I will write to provide a foothold, and I invite others to create more footholds.

Please join me to support WorldVision's disaster relief and humanitarian aid efforts as they work in Ukraine and neighboring countries. WorldVision is a vetted charity with excellent ratings on resource use and a mission to help all in need regardless of faith, creed, race, etc.
