I warned you. Here it is. :)
Please support me in the Clarion Write-a-Thon. We start writing on June 24th and continue until August 4th, the 6 weeks that Clarion is running this year in San Diego. My goal is to write at least 500 words every day and to finish 1 short story a week, for a total of 6. So you can sponsor me per story, or just give a flat donation, whichever you choose.
Clarion is a science fiction and fantasy writing workshop held every summer for 6 weeks. ~17-19 students come together with a different professional author instructing them every week. They write, they read each others' work, and they critique it. In the awesome weather of San Diego.
Since it requires people to have 6 weeks free, it often means people are in the midst of a transition. They may have just finished school, they may be out of work, they may be changing homes/careers/spouses, about to embark on parenthood, just retired, or something else entirely. In a lot of cases having 6 weeks off also means money is tight. I received a scholarship and I very much appreciated it. This is my opportunity to pay it forward and our opportunity to together help someone else attend Clarion who wouldn't be able to otherwise.
I know it's cliche to say 'every little bit helps', but in this case what I mean by it is that the more people I have supporting me, the more guilty I'll feel if I don't write!
