Clarion Write-A-Thon

Have I ever mentioned that crazy works for me? Can’t believe I’ve neglected to tell you…

Since Write1Sub1 madness is working, I’m signing on for the six week Clarion Write-A-Thon. I’ll be participating in an “at home” challenge that works on the workshop’s schedule. I don’t know what the exercises will entail or how time consuming it will be, though I’m shaking in my boots at the “This mini-Clarion will put participants through their paces and help them grow as writers while encouraging people to donate in their names” description mentioned here.

Partipation will accomplish a few things. I’ll give Clarion a little test drive, and if I can keep up with the six week push, then I’ll feel better about applying in 2012/2013. Second, I don’t know her well, but fellow writer Annie Bellet is attending Clarion this year, and if this doesn’t help her directly, it’ll at least help some other Clarion student who might be in a similar situation.

Writers need to support each other. This is me being supportive and having fun doing it.

If you wish to sponsor me for the event, I’ll post more information in the coming weeks. The event begins on June 26th, so we’ve got time.

Happy Writing!

  1. Hmm… something tells me I’ll be busy in June…

    I’m glad Write1Sub1 is working. The only outside deadline I’ve imposed on myself recently was NaNoWriMo, which didn’t really work out. Right now I’ve got a self-imposed deadline to get a handful more stories submitted before baby arrives. It’s funny how you can sometimes get more done when your schedule is insane though, isn’t it?

  2. That’s a good deadline. 🙂 I actually got back into writing sooner with my second one than my first one. It’s almost as if I had gotten used to being exhausted all the time and I figured out how to function in that state.

    As neccessity is the mother of invention, so is insanity the mother of productivity. 😉
