Each year I participate in National Novel Writing Month. And each year I donate to the Office of Letters and Light, the non-profit agency affiliated with NaNoWriMo. The money goes to supporting literary programs, libraries, and young writer programs worldwide. This year has been exceptionally tough for us. I wasn’t able to contribute as much as I normally do. But this year we have the option of asking for sponsors.
Today, Tuesday, November 24, 2009 there is a special 24-hour fundraising event. If you have a buck or ten you can toss into the coffer to help raise money for these wonderful programs, I’d be especially grateful. And if you do it within the 24-hour period via my sponsorship page (https://www.gifttool.com/athon/SponsorAParticipant?ID=1891&AID=777&PID=109076) I’ll write you in as a character in my current novel, iRON-ic Suicides, which is a dark comedy (and yes, I’ll be nice and not transform you into a writing pin-cushion). To watch my progress and learn more about this year’s novel, check out my NaNo page at: http://www.nanowrimo.org/eng/user/21182.
Next up: A site and blog revamp! Look for it soon (but not before the end of NaNoWriMo, foo’!)
