I didn't get 10k today, but I got about 9k! :D I'm quite pleased about that.

In seven days, I did twenty-seven handwritten pages in my journal. It's me talking about writing and wondering what I'm doing with my life. Great stuff for the [livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout, though. I feel like I'm really making some headway now. I started a fictional piece today that I actually like. I'm tapping into a character I had originally created as a roleplaying character, but then did nothing with. He's a nice addition to my story. I have about six or seven characters I need to figure out now. I also need to do some world building because this is a magic and preternatural type setting. There are some interesting figures already who are more than they let on.

For countable words for [livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout, I am guestimating that I have about 16,000 words so far. I should be writing about 21000 words a month. At this rate, that's going to be more than doable. But I am definitely writing my butt off. It feels really great!

Some weeks ago, I got an e-mail from a former co-worker at Chaffey about a contest The Gotham Writers Workshop was running. You could submit your name for about a dozen different prizes. They had some great things, such as a membership to one of the workshops (either online or in NYC), a Writer clock, a Gotham sweatshirt, magazines, books, gift cards, even an e-reader. After not winning anything at the Night of Writing Dangerously in Nov, I won a prize this time! A year subscription to Poets & Writers! I've picked up their mag occasionally and it is a quality periodical. I also have a bag with their logo that I got at the LA Times Festival of Books and love dearly. Yay!

It's a small writing world because [livejournal.com profile] theemdash won, too! :D

One of the highlights of the National Novel Writing Month is the Night of Writing Dangerously Write-a-thon Fundraiser. This is my sixth year doing NaNo and I've never been, but I've always wanted to. This is actually the first year that I'll be able to attend because I have the funds to get myself to San Francisco!

As it is a write-a-thon fundraiser, you need to get sponsors to get you there. $200 USD will get you in. I need all the help I can on this to reach the goal. Any amount would help. One dollar. Anything. The money goes to The Office of Letters and Light, the parent non-profit company behind NaNoWriMo. Their main program is the Young Writers Program.

Thank you for any help that you can give! I'm really looking forward to this NaNo. I'm trying to be a Municipal Liaison for my area and I'm anticipating winning NaNo number 4.

Please help sponsor me to attend the Night of Writing Dangerously 2009
