Hi. Remember that Night of Writing Dangerously thing I wouldn’t shut up about over the past few years?
It’s back. And it’s better than ever.
Last year I got to wear the coveted flowerpot hat for winning a word sprint. That’s right, I beat 250 other people in a word war. I met people who were previously Twitter followers and fellow @NaNoWordSprints leaders. I visited NaNoWriMo HQ and rolled up all those posters in the NOWD tote bags and had lunch with Grant, NaNo’s Executive Director. I did research for Wikiwrimo and documented even more of NaNoWriMo culture.
This year several people I’ve befriended through NaNo are also attending. Among them are Debs and Errol, and I’m convinced that putting Errol and me in the same room will result in a NaNo enthusiasm explosion. Or we’ll fight to the death for the NaNoWriMo’s Biggest Fan title.
But for that to happen, I need to reach the $275 goal first. And for that I need your help.
So what’s in it for you? Good question.
Any amount: a handcrafted email from me thanking you. Pixels! Sent through the Internet!
$5 or more: a public thank you on Twitter
$10 or more: a character named after you (or the thing of your choice)
$20 or more: one of YOUR characters makes a cameo appearance
$40 or more: a pep talk just for you written by yours truly
The top donor: choose one of my NaNoWriMo 2014 novels for me. Tell me what to write!
Not only that, but every cent donated will go to improving NaNoWriMo’s writing programs for kids and adults all over the world. Wrimos have written novels in classrooms and on active military duty, in libraries and coffee shops. We’ve written on all seven continents (yes, even Antarctica).
The National Novel Writing Month community can get even more awesome, but as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, it needs YOU to help with that.
Donate to NaNoWriMo today and help half a million kids and adults realize their creative potential.
