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.
