2013 Clarion Write-a-Thon

It’s that time of year again. What is a write-a-thon, anyway? It's just like a walk-a-thon. But instead of walking, we're writing, and instead of making pledges per mile, we're making pledges per word, chapter, or story. Writers get support, encouragement and motivation, and the option of joining or creating a team of other writers. Those who care about the writers in their life get a way to show their support. And money is raised for a literally fantastic cause -- the Clarion Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers' Workshop. For further details, go to http://clarionwriteathon.org

2013 Goal: 600 words a day

Writing Goals: Since I started my novel shortly before the 2012 Clarion Write-a-thon, I thought I would have my first novel finished by the time it came around the follow year. Needless to say, I have not. Instead of wallowing in self-pity (as is my wont), I calculated the word count needed to complete my novel for the 2013 Clarion Write-a-thon. This year, I have to write 600 words a day to finish my first novel. I have a new (first) office and a new desk. It's time to put some mileage on both and finish this book!

Fundraising Goal: Any money I can raise for the Clarion Workshop, a wonderful cause, will bring me and some other writer whom it helps joy.
