So the Banksy goal became, for completely arbitrary reasons, get every state in the Stripes before Christmas.
We are almost there too, much to my surprise. There are only 3 states to go. North Dakota. Wisconsin. And Delaware.
Check it out:
And we have 25 days to go. It could happen.
There’s a :::bigger map::: too that includes the global map and we have hit all over there too, France, England, Greece, Poland, Germany, Scotland, Belgium, hell I think we have more countries than Hitler — but that does not sound very politic to say and also, well go look at the map.
Meanwhile, there is some weirdness with Banksy. Like people who say they are going to get a “state” then show up with, Oh you got that state already.
It’s not about one person getting one state. It’s about a lot of people getting a lot of cities, and a lot of countries. In multiple spots.
Have you learned nothing from Guerrilla Meeting Tactics?
Apparently not. Oh well.
But hey, we Banksied the hell out of the Stripes — and the world, yay!
And we are not done yet.
We have 25 days to go.

In the interests of getting the book name and link out there as much as possible, the plan here is to give away free books over the holidays.
HOW: ::Contact::: me and submit your proposal for a group or site giveaway, let me know how many people are in the group and what sort of deadline or date scenario you have in mind. If it alls sounds good, I’ll supply the book.
WHERE: Groups with an online presence of some sort that can spread the word and link back to the book site are best. But in person groups and meets are also a possibility if they are influential and get the title circulating among members.
WHEN: Any time between now and the first of the year.
WHY: To get the book title out there and circulating and gaining some recognition factor outside my immediate realm of influence. Anyone on my sites or connected directly to me already knows the book’s title and/or probably already has the book. The idea here is to have giveaways in venues not directly linked to me to get the title circulating in new places.
WHO SHOULD DO THIS: Anyone with a significant writers membership and/or online presence.
WHO PICKS THE WINNERS: It’s up to the organizer to pick winners. I’ll supply the book. I’d also like to know, if and when this flies, how many people entered or were present for the book drawing.
PS: Max will be a #Scriptchat guest December 29th, 8 PM EST, discussing “Do’s and don’ts to get your screenplay read, sold, and produced.” A lucky #scriptchat attendee will receive a free copy of The New Screenwriter’s Survival Guide.

STATES STILL TO GO: As of November 16th, 2013, we have 4 states to go before Christmas. I am not sure we will make it, but my partners in crime are optimistic. [Crazy partners in crime!) If you can nail one of these states you are a hero:
*There are asterisks or questions marks next to states people say they are picking up.
*We still have one total dead zone: North Dakota. Oh North Dakota how you mock me.
*Delaware is shady as fuck too.

With :::Banksy::: commitments coming in —
If everyone saying they are going to take a remaining state comes in?
We have FIVE states left:
It would be criminal to not pull this off with only five states left.
*Hundreds of people have participated in this. Across the globe. I am agog. And humbled. Thank you.

Word on the street is we just went Banksy in Connecticut, West Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee. Yay yay yay!
That leaves us 18 states to go Banksy before Christmas.
STATES LEFT TO GO :::GOING BANKSY:::
*Asterisks mean someone said they’re taking that state, that doesn’t always happen just because someone says it’s going to happen, but hey, there’s a claim.
