Write-a-thon!

I will be writing up an account of my trip to Blizzard*, which was dizzying and way way cool, soon.  But for now, I'm going to mention that I'm participating once again in the Clarion West Write-a-thon. It's much like a walkathon, except you can tie your donation to what I'm writing. I'll be doing a story a week and will post excerpts on here.  You can pledge per week, or a lump sum, and any amount is quite welcome. If you're not interested in sponsoring me, perhaps you'd be interested in one of the other writers participating, such as Louise Marley or Michael Swanwick. Your donation is tax-deductible and goes to support a program that's enriching the speculative fiction field by helping produce some fine writers.

*One of my favorite lines from the trip, "This is a thousand-boner idea."
