Clarion Write-a-thon 2012 (Goal: finish the monster *sans* box)

12jun24_clarion_badgeToday, the 2012 Clarion Write-a-thon kicks off to support the Clarion Writers' workshop, science fiction's premiere training experience for new authors. Now in its third year, the write-a-thon helps raise money to support this vital workshop (last year, the dozens of writers and their awesome sponsors raised $17,000 to keep this program going.) So, starting today, and for the next six weeks, I'll be cranking text along with the participants in this year's workshop. (Waves)

I'm aiming for 30K words, and to finish my alternate-history novel in progress, Fist of the Ape, and I could use your support. You can pop on over to my Write-a-thon page and make a donation (secure online credit card and PayPal options available.) I'll be matching (at least) the first $100 in pledges to support this very worthy cause.

Gotta go. Words to write.
