Thank you, sponsors!
My goal for the Write-a-thon was to finish the rough draft of the novel I’ve been working on. Guess what? Success!!! I started at 47,000 words and finished yesterday, Wednesday, at just over 90,000 words. The next step is to put it away for a few weeks while I go to WorldCon in Helsinki, Finland where I’ll be on a panel with another CW WaT writer, Ian McDonald discussing Mundane Science Fiction. As you may or may not know, the concept crystalized when Geoff Ryman was teaching our third week of Clarion West in 2004 and we had an argument, ahem, discussion about the pros and cons of real science versus things like FTL travel, transporters, and so on. A manifesto was created and a year or so later Ian McDonald ripped it apart in a blog entry. This should be an interesting panel, so if you happen to be in Helsinki, Finland at 3 PM on Friday the 11th please stop by!
Thanks again for your sponsorship and, as always, thanks so much to the wonderful community that is Clarion West and all the incredible people who make it happen.

The BIG GOAL is to finish the SF novel rough draft I’m working on by the end of this workshop. I’ve got the first third written and the last third so this is where I stitch it all together.
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! (A few days late, but so what?)
I’m donating here and will sponsor a few others along the way. Clarion West has been incredibly important to me and my writing, and for the fantastic and supporting community of magical folks and wonderful visionaries that make it up.
