NaNo Day 10: Ch1Con Indiegogo!

Ch1Con Badge 2014 [Matted]It’s live! Help us fund the 2015 Chapter One Young Writers Conference and make teen writers’ dreams come true! (Also mine. Just saying.)

You can find our Indiegogo campaign here.

Ummm. Okay. Let’s see. What else for today?

I’ve got a mound of homework to do. (I ended up falling asleep before I could get started on it last night.)

I’ve got classes to attend. (Yay weekdays.)

And 2K in NaNo to write. (Plus 500 words left over from yesterday’s 1K, because Once Upon a Time was more distracting than expected. By which I mean the special effects were even more terrible than expected. By which I mean: Yay. Once Upon a Time.)

So yeah. That’s what I’ve got on my plate today.

Goal for today: 2,000 + yesterday’s 500 = 2,500.

Overall goal: 19,000.

Current word count: 19,046.

How’s NaNo going for you? Real life getting in the way yet?


Bonus Post: Donate to Camp NaNoWriMo!

Hey there, everybody! Just a quick little post here… if anybody would be interested in possibly donating money to the Office of Letters and Light (aka the people who put on NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month, every year), I would really appreciate it! (And I’m sure they wouldn’t mind either. 😉 )

The Please-Donate-Money-I’m-Begging-You Letter:


Hey there Friends, Family, and Righteous Supporters,

This summer, I’m going to camp. It’s a virtual creative writing camp called Camp NaNoWriMo. While I’m there, I’ll be knocking out the first 50,000 words of a novel in just one month.

Take that, archery classes.

Camp NaNoWriMo is free. I’m raising money to help the nonprofit that puts it on every year keep the virtual campfire glowing and the inspiration flowing for me and thousands of my fellow campers all around the world.

Every dollar I raise will keep my spirits high as I write my way towards the realization of my creative goals. More importantly, your contribution will help the Office of Letters and Light build a more engaged and inspiring world.

Thank you so much for your support of my writing!


Check out my sponsorship page! (There are lots of fun videos and stuff on it, if you just want to… you know… click the link and watch those, and then maybe… see how awesome NaNoWriMo is… and donate money… and yeah… 😉 )

And if that doesn’t work, here’s a picture of my dog to convince you:



Thank you so much to everybody who even just considers donating! NaNoWriMo is an absolutely fantastic program. 🙂

Oh, and while I’m busy thanking everybody: THANK YOU SO MUCH TO EVERYBODY WHO READS MY BLOG! Like you have no idea. It puts a smile on my face every time I come on here and see your comments and likes and follows and, just… gahhh! 🙂 I love you all!! ❤
