This is my CW class waiting for Chuck Palahnuik’s reading. I had a terrible camera when I was there so I only have a few awful pictures. My advice to CW students: make sure you don’t have a crap camera.
I keep forgetting to post that I’m doing the beg-a-thon again this year.
I’ve sent out a few super-impersonal spams begging for money and I may send a few more.
Meanwhile, here I am doing one of my most unfavorite things: asking people for money.
This is a fundraiser for Clarion West the organization that puts on the writing workshop I did in 2008.
My adventures are here (scroll to the bottom to start at the beginning.)
I think I said my stated goal says 1000 words a week because the workshop starts during World Cup but I’ll probably do more like 3000 a week.
You can sponsor me. I’m going to match donations for the first $100 so if I can get 20 people to sponsor me for $5 (only $5! You can probably find that much on the floor in the car) I will make my goal of donating $200. You can donate more if you want. $20. $100. $1 million. All will be appreciated and if you donate $1 million we can probably arrange to have a building named after you.
If you’ve ever had a dream of donating money to deserving writing nerds, this is your big chance.
My donation page is here. If you like Paypal you can donate with a few clicks.
If you don’t like Paypal you can mail a donation. That information is here. If that’s too much trouble you can mail or give to me. You can throw it at me and I’ll run back and forth with a bucket and try to catch it.
If you don’t want to give it to me there’s a huge long list of other writers you can sponsor.
And if you’re tired of people asking you for money, then you can think good thoughts.
I’ll post a weekly update on how I’m doing.
And huge thanks to everyone who already donated. I really appreciate it.
