talent, pencil


Just a quick note: Today is the last day to sign up for the Clarion West Write-a-thon. If the Write-a-thon gets 300 participants this year, Clarion West will get a donation of $3000. $3000 pays for a lot of writing workshop goodness! As of last night, they had 293 people signed up. Sign-ups close today, so if you'd like to participate, go here and sign up: http://clarionwest.org/writeathon

I'm signed up for this year, with my writing goal being to finish and revise a pair of screenplays that I'm writing with my friend Cliff Winnig. (Cliff attended The Other Workshop. I think they're also doing a write-a-thon, which is worthy of support. I'll see if I can dig up a link.) I can't say much about the project these screenplays are for, but I will post regular updates on how many pages I've written/revised, along with some thoughts about writing screenplays (which I've never done before), writing to an outline (which I haven't done a lot of before), and writing collaboratively (which I haven't done before).

The link to my Write-a-thon page doesn't seem to be live yet, but as soon as it is I'll put up a link and ask those of you who are feeling generous to sponsor me.

(I have just mistyped "write-a-thon" as "write-a-ton", which is really what it's about, isn't it?)
