This is the final week of this year’s Clarion West Write-a-thon. You have till July 27th if you want to sponsor me. Any money raised by the write-a-thon goes toward funding for the Clarion West Writer’s Workshop. It’s a good thing, and it’s worth supporting.
I would love to attend someday, but I don’t think think it’ll ever be a thing I can do. I can’t take six weeks off of work. And even if I could afford it, I don’t know if I’d be able to handle six weeks away from home–away from Paul. So, doing the write-a-thon is my way of being a part of something great.
I just finished the rough draft of my story for this week. It’s the 8th story that I’ve written for the write-a-thon, and I might have time for another before the week is done. I’m not sure how much of my motivation of the past six weeks came from my goal of one story a week, but I do think it’s helped. I think I’ll do it again next year.
I haven’t raised a ton of money for Clarion. Honestly, I’m just happy that my number is more than $0. I have a feeling that most other people who participated helped them a lot more than I did. But I hope that what money I did help to raise helps them to continue doing what they do.
