Clarion West Write-A-Thon: It's like NaNoWriMo, but better!

So after three years of essentially ignoring NaNoWriMo's existence, I'm jumping back into another writing challenge. As I think most people on this blog aware, in 2009, I had the pleasure of attending Clarion West Writing Workshop, where I spent six weeks writing and critiquing stories while learning from six amazing instructors. I also would have had a difficult time attending if not for the financial aid that I received.

So, this year, for the first time. I'm participating in the Clarion West Write-A-Thon. My goal is complete the first 50 pages of my newest novel, POWER SHIFT (which probably needs a new title by now considering how many times I've re-written the synopsis)

I know Clarion West was an amazing experience for me, and I hope I'm able to help others have that same experience.

UPDATE: ON the Writer's Voice results: my team won, with me contributing two partial requests to our overall success. Go Team Rock Star! On the Write-A-Thon: 263 writers raised over $20,000 together. How awesome is that?
