Hey everyone! The Clarion West Write-a-thon is starting soon! The Write-a-thon goes along with the Clarion West workshop every summer, it's when people challenge themselves to public writing goals and support Clarion West :D.

I graduated from Clarion West awhile back. Nightshifted -- my book that is coming out in oh-god-eight-days! -- is the first book I wrote after attending. Coincidence? I think not!

I participate every year, and you can too!

Here's where you sign up -- and here's my page by way of example.

We're trying to get 200 participants this year, which I think is totally doable. This year I'll be working on Deadshifted, trying to get a final draft done during the six weeks of the Write-a-thon, and I'll be running sponsorship contest things over here on my blog. I want to write a flash piece turning everyone who sponsors me into a disease. (It'll be sort of sexy, cute, or gross, depending on how I feel that day, ha ;)). Instructions on that will follow.

For now, if you're interested in challenging yourself to write this summer with a group of likeminded people, sign up! :D
