Thanks to your donations, I was able to join a Team again for the Clarion Write-a-Thon. It is such a nice, extra bonus to be able to talk to other writers while supporting a great cause. Thank you to everyone who has supported me!

Thank you to Jim Shea for very nice send up!

Happy Friday!

It’s the weekend and the first day of summer! Why no celebrate by pledging to support a local writer in the Clarion 2013 Write-a-Thon!

I promise weekly video updates and daily writing samples – along with the promise to complete my first novel. For everyone who donates or pledges for me, I will send you a chapter from my novel as a thank you.

Enjoy your weekend and thank you for your time!


Only 5 Days Away

Only 5 Days Away: the butterflies in my stomach tell me I don’t have much time before the Clarion Write-a-Thon starts. My goals for this year: to write 600 words a day for 42 days (for a total of 25,200 words) to finish my first novel. Please sponsor my first novel and other, future excellent writers by pledging anything you can spare at You can read more about the Write-a-Thon at

Plus, if you’re wondering if you should sign-up for the Write-a-Thon, I promise to be your own personal cheerleader if you do. And have you seen my pom-poms?


Clarion's Write-a-Thon

I didn't expect to make it early.

As of 6:55pm tonight, I have met my Clarion Write-a-Thon goal of 11,000 words in six weeks – or in my case, four weeks. I owe a big thank you to all my sponsors and pledges. Your support fueled my drive to write every night and exceed my goals regularly. Knowing you believed in me and back my desire to support the Clarion Writers' Workshop proved to be a very powerful motivator.

Anyone interested in sponsoring me can do so at my Clarion Write-a-Thon website: For anyone interested, you can read the excerpts from the writing I did during the Write-a-Thon by clicking the SHOW/HIDE EXCERPTS button at the bottom of my profile page. Please keep in mind this was rough draft writing; I haven't edited it. Forgive all spelling and grammatical errors as well as awkward phrasing. I will clean it up in the next draft.

If you do not want to sponsor me, please do consider sponsoring the Clarion Write-a-Thon project by donating at the website:

Again, thank you for your time and support.


Clarion's Write-a-Thon

Guess what I found out? I can still accept sponsorships and donations for my Clarion Write-a-Thon. So, if you had wanted to sponsor (one time donation) or pledge (money per word), you still have time. You will be helping me to support Clarion's Writers Workshop, an intense six week writing program that is one of the oldest and most well-respected writers' workshops in the nation. For more information about the Clarion Writers Workshop, please visit their website at

All donations can be declared on your taxes. The Clarion Write-a-Thon and the Writers Workshop is governed by the Clarion Foundation. Established to ensure, despite the economy, the high quality of the Writers Workshop, the Clarion Foundation is a legally incorporated non-profit organization, awarded charitable (501(c)(3)) status by the I.R.S. Your donations to the Foundation are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

If you wish to see what your money will purchase, you can visit my writer's profile at You can see my goals, monitor my progress (one week down, five more to go!), and read experts from my novel. If you like what you see, click the button and donate or pledge.

To those who have, I thank you. While you support an organization I believe in, you also support me in a life goal. I do not have the words of gratitude to express what it means to have the support.

Anyway, back to enjoying my weekend. I hope you enjoy yours as well!

Please take time to read

In case you didn't know, writing is very important to me. I have been writing stories all my life. One of the items on my Ultimate Bucket List is to attend the Clarion Writer's Workshop, Clarion is the oldest writing program of its kind, and it is highly respected. Many of the greatest figures in science fiction and fantasy honed their skills and launched careers there.

Until I can attend, I decide to participate in the Clarion Write-A-Thon. As a participant, I will raise money to help writers write and Clarion mentors so we can share critiques, ideas, encouragement and good writing. It's the same approach they've used successfully for years in the workshop. I know it will provide me with just the kind of push I need to work on my novel. Completing my novel is important to me and helping other writers is a noble cause.

The Clarion Write-A-Thon starts June 24, 2012 and finishes on August 4, 2012.

I hope you'll help out by going to and sponsoring my writing. Every contribution that comes through will show on my page and will drive me to do more and better, while also helping out future writers.

Thanks in advance! Please check back often to see how I'm doing and what I've written.
