I'm considering founding a combined "outlaw motorcycle club & writers' group," and to offer franchises in cities around the country. Here's our (proposed) "colors"-- of course, with "YOUR CITY HERE" as the bottom "rocker" ...at least, until somebody in your locality antes up the franchise fee.
Motorcycle ownership is definitely not mandatory --I think I can borrow a Vespa, but otherwise I'll be the outlaw low-life on the Schwinn-- but all Prospects should probably have written SOMEthing. (We'll settle for writing that franchise check, okay?)
As an incentive, members will be able to choose their own club-monikers. Myself, I haven't decided between "Viper" or "First-Draft." Send your own alias-choice along with your application (and that check, dammit).
First five applicants will receive a free "ORIGINAL" -member patch. And a glue-on three-day-growth beard-wig.
