Writing To Help Writers

I’m hesitant to claim that the privilege of reading my rough drafts is worth paying money for, but I might as well give it a shot.

I’m participating in the Clarion UCSD Write-A-Thon, raising money to support the Clarion Foundation, one of the preeminent incubators of sci-fi and fantasy writers in the world. From now until August 6th, I’ll be posting my daily word counts, as I have been for the last several months. The twist is this: For every dollar that’s donated through my Write-A-Thon writer page, I’ll post 10 words from my current draft of Sun, Moon, and Stars.

I’ve got 24K words right now. How much of it will I be forced to reveal?



Update

Fitness: Rest day (race tomorrow!)
Sun, Moon, and Stars: 260 words, 253 seven-day average, 255 average, 24242 total

Good luck with your writing project. I recently read an article about Setting personal goals that I found really interesting. I am sure you'll like it to.
