Wrapping Up the 2012 Write-a-thon
The writing part of the 2012 Clarion West Write-a-thon is done, though there's still time to donate in support of your favorite Wat author. Here's the summary so far: 228 participating writers (our goal was 200); about 400 donors (our goal is 500). Donations are still welcome, but right now the dollar total is around $21,000. As for wordcounts, submissions, revisions, drafts--the work done--that's harder to calculate. Some fell short of their goals, others shot past them--results are still coming in via individual blogs, our Facebook page, and Twitter (search using the #writeathon hashtag). Many participants admit they'd never have even thought of focusing on their challenges without the Wat.
Thanks to all of you who have made (and continue making) the 2012 Write-a-thon a smashing success!
