I waited until the Big Room emptied, then threaded phalanxes of ergonomic chairs to Jake’s workstation, at the far end of the room-spanning table. A half-century after Google’s birth, tech companies were still packing them in.

To make more time for writing. I’ve now set up specific writing hours–I text virtual writing partners to keep me on schedule, because otherwise duties, deadlines, obligation, and procrastination snatch it away. I’m planning to set aside more hours. During the Write-a-thon I hope to finish the rewrite of one story and send it out, and begin anew on the story excerpted above.
Clarion West is facing the same challenges as any long-term resident of Seattle: how to afford rising housing costs. The workshop has no offices, but for six weeks every summer it requires 18 bedrooms, classroom space, dining and kitchen facilities, and instructor living quarters.
So this year my fundraising goal is to somehow put a dent in that bill. Maybe a $500.00 dent.
To inspire donations, I’m going to try something new. The workshop is all about writing process. For some writers, that includes playlist. For me, it’s image files. If you sponsor me for $35.00, I will send you a link to an online photo album that contains images that inspired one of the published stories listed above.
If you donate a multiple of $35.00 I will link you to that many more albums. I cannot tell you the maximum number of albums, though I can attest that they are finite…and some will be for stories in progress, such as the one excerpted above, or from my novel in progress.
