No, I mean because I'm participating in the Clarion Write-a-Thon. Clarion is a Big Deal, intensive writing bootcamp for writers who want to improve their scifi/fantasy short story skills. It also needs money, so that it can keep training the budding authors in our favorite geek genres. And I can always use motivation to write, so it's like a match made in heaven.
(And if you all love me enough to pledge dirty wads of cash, I might win an iPad. But that's beside the point, I promise.)
Here's my writer page, complete with an en-hatted picture. Because I am nothing without my hat. It's for a good cause, and it's getting me to do things with my summer other than throwing rocks at rattlesnakes, so please consider donating!
