Today is the day. By midnight tonight (Colorado time), I will have completed my write-a-thon. Typical me, I’m pushing it right down to the wire with a full ten hours left to write. Yes, one-third of the total of goal of thirty hours remains. Those of you who have been reading the blog for a while know how I feel about deadlines. Scary, exhilarating, thrilling, motivating. Tonight, for example, I completed a full re-write of a first draft of a new manuscript. I do thrive under pressure.
Plus, the non-writing rewards are also great. Thanks to your generous donations, we have raised $187 for the American Heart Association so far. Remember that I am matching donations dollar for dollar, so that means we’re already up to almost $400 total. I am so thankful to you all and so gratified to “use” my writing for good.
If you have not already donated and would like to, click on the firstgiving link here or on the sidebar. You can also watch my progress on the ticker today, as I’ll be updating it as I go along. Thanks so much for taking this journey with me! Next week I will blog about my lessons learned from this experience.Volunteer/Community, Works in Progress, Write-a-thon, Writing · Tags: American Heart Association, Deadlines, Personal Fundraising, Write-a-thon, Writing
