Clarion West Beg-A-Thon Week #3 Update

The socially distancing birthday party was a delight but I still haven’t organized my photos so I will post at some point in the future. My photo collection is completely out of control. A massive day of organization is needed but not a priority at this time.

If this was the workshop the participants would be halfway through and probably all in love with each other and starting to worry how fast the workshop is flying by.

I made my goal but not very artfully.

I’ve been working on characterization and trying too hard made me seize up. I started writing in the first person and then started over in the third person. Both stories are slightly different but I did work both to an ending. 2410 words combined. No snippet this week.

It’s about a Karuk tribal member who is driving to Hoopa and picks up a hitchhiker who isn’t what they seem.

The fundraiser is kicking ass. According to my report there are 527 writers from all over the world plus the spirits of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, Pauline Elizabeth Hopkins, and Jules Verne. We’ve raised $12,929 so far. Thanks to everyone who has contributed. I will send personal thank yous to my sponsors.
