I've decided to sign up for Clarion West’s tenth annual Write-a-thon. What they want from their participants is to Write, write, write! My writing goal is simple: return to a daily writing jam starting June 23 and ending August 2. No word count minimum, just a goal of writing something everyday. I'll report back here and at my Write-a-thon page here.
I'm doing this to get back into writing while also helping to benefit a great writing community here in the PacNW. Clarion West has served many of my friends very well over the years. I'm asking for a pretty cheap sponsorship from everyone: $1 a day, $10 for 10 days or $40 if you already know I'll meet my goal (which I will). If you want me to send you a new poem about sleep, food or the brain at the end of the Write-a-thon, send in $50. I promise it will be passionate and masterful and accessible and whatever else you'd like for it to be!
