This is a post all about how awesome NaNoWriMo is, and it includes a link to my fundraiser for them. So, here’s the big shiny button to click to donate:
As bloggers (and blog readers) reading and writing is a huge part of who we are, what we love and how we communicate. Many of you are probably familiar with the Office of Letters and Light; I got to intern with them our in Oakland a few years ago, and I can say with certainty that these folks are exactly as cool, creative and down to earth as they seem. They are totally dedicated to helping all writers produce some genuine, never-before-seen, handmade fiction. Exciting, right?
But here’s the thing: the OLL needs $ to run their fantastic site and offer their awesome services, like the Young Writer’s Program and the Come Write In program for libraries and independent bookstores.
But you don’t have to take my word for it; check the links below!
Young Writer’s Program: A prose adventure for 12-and-under authors and those taking part in NaNoWriMo as part of a K-12 classroom.
NaNoWriMo: Insanity I’ve been a part of for the past 4 years: a support program to help anyone write a 50,000-word novel, from scratch, in the month of November.
Camp NaNoWriMo: A month of wild literary abandon–but in June and August instead of November (which will help with avoid food-coma on Turkey Day I hope)!
These guys are funded through donors like you and me, and need our support – not just so I can spend a month frenetically writing with them, but so kids and communities have access and encouragement to write.
Thank you so much if it’s possible for you to help me raise money for them by clicking that big, shiny DONATE button. You Rock!
(PS – After that “you don’t have to take my word for it” I have THIS Reading Rainbow goodness stuck in my head. Think of that clip as a thank you for your donation.)
