Clarion West Write-a-Thon - June 23 to August 2

A couple of writers I follow on Twitter linked me to the Clarion West Write-a-Thon and I decided that this novel I've been poking at for the past couple of years might stand a better chance of being finished if I had a proper deadline instead of some vague sense that I should really work on that thing.

So I have signed up.  My profile is visible here: http://clarionwest.org/writeathon/sheilaoshea.  I am asking for any interested sponsors to front the nice folks at Clarion West a dollar for every day that I successfully sidestep all internal excuses and sit my ass down and write.  I will be posting my progress in a daily Tweet from my @wonderbink account with the hashtag #writeathon.

I haven't added it to my profile there yet, but I'll state it here--anybody who sponsors me and gives me a mailing address will get a free Wishing Star magnet, suitable for sticking on any ferrous metal surfaces you glance at for inspiration.

Sound good?  Wish me luck, then.  I have no idea if I'm going to succeed, but that's no reason not to try.

PS - Today (June 22, 2013) is the last day to sign up if you're reading this and thinking "Wow, that's cool!  I wanna play, too!"
