We met the goal to have 200 writers sign up to help support Clarion West – more than 225 writers (I’m on page 3) will be part of Clarion West without attending the workshop. We’re all promising to write and gather pennies/dimes/dollars in donations for Clarion West.
I’m so impressed with the people who are taking the workshop – can’t imagine leaving home and immersing myself in writing for six full weeks. But I am hoping to write alongside them in spirit by doing this Write-a-thon. My goal is to kickstart a novel. I’ve been brainstorming for a month, and hope to get a solid 15K words done (over and above my short story work).
I’ve started a page to show my progress here. Wish me luck!
