I always love “Clarion Season” here in the Seattle area. Â Great writers and earnest, brilliant students all converge on our area, parties and readings ensue, and the write-a-thon happens. Â This is the second year I’ve done the write-a-thon. Â It’s kind of a “please sponsor me and I’ll write to some specific goal” event, and this year there were 228 writers. Â Collectively, we raised over $20,000 to help support the workshop.
I did make my goal (write 1,000 words a day except for the two ays of the Seattle-to-Portland Bike Ride and on recovery day), and now I’ve had two days of no writing and I’m itchy. Â So the write-a-thon always drives me just a little bit harder.
And now that Clarion Season is over, I’ll be on to other adventures. Â I’m already looking forward to next year.
