So, it’s that time of year again and this year’s crop of Clarion UCSD/West/whatever students are getting ready to go forth to San Diego, or come here to Seattle and Clarion for six weeks. I, however, having done Clarion already, will mostly be sitting at home trying to write.
I’m not doing anything particularly special this year, although I’ll probably be tweeting incessantly about both the write-a-thon and the What Fates Impose Kickstarter, because I’m nothing if not a loud, obnoxious hypocrite (yay).
In any case:
a) Clarion UCSD is running a Write-a-Thon again this year
b) I’m doing the Write-a-Thon: Here is my page! You can sponsor (which means just sending Clarion money and making me feel warm and fuzzy inside), or you can pledge. Pledging puts more pressure on me to actually write some shit this summer.
c) You can do it too: (They’re trying to reach 225 participants by June 23!)
My goal for the 6 weeks is 50,000 words. The goal is listed in sort of a clumsy fashion, because I wanted people to be able to pledge per unit, but once you get to 50,000 units the pledging amounts get ridiculous, and it’s something like 0.0001 dollars per word. So you can pledge per 500 word unit. Or something. I don’t know, whatever, there are 100 of them.
That’s pretty much it for now.
