God's Man | National Novel Writers Month...
Once again I am taking part in the most exciting and nerve racking competition ever devised NaNoWriMo. This stands for the National Novel Writing Month Challenge that is organized by the Offices of Letters and Light. Over the next 30 days I will, once again, attempt to write a 50,000 word novel. I will also be consuming lots of coffee, Go Kureig, and miss lots of sleep. This will be the 6th year that I participate and I am looking forward to it. Last year was the first year that I have ever made it over the finish line, novel in hand. The title of my novel was The FaithWalker and it was one of the most unpublisheable (sic) pieces I have ever read but I loved ever bit of it.
This year, like the others, I am asking for donations towards the Offices of Letter's and Light and their Young Writers Program. This program does creative writing projects encouraging kids and adults in classrooms, communities, and libraries around the world. I would be grateful if you would join me in supporting this worthwhile group.
Here is the letter that I have sent to my friends below. Happy Noveling
This November, once again, the nonprofit Office of Letters and Light will be bringing together the mightiest of novelists for an event that will define our generation forever. I'm speaking, of course, of National Novel Writing Month. It's a global writing challenge for which I'll spend November (and portions of my sanity!) writing a 50,000-word book in just 30 days. Last year, after 4 years of trying, I completed a novel in 30 days.
In addition to my writerly duties, I'm raising money to help the Office of Letters and Light continue to put on free creative writing programs for kids and adults in classrooms, communities, and libraries around the world. It was amazing to complete "Faith Walker" but even more impressive was knowing that the money I raised would be used to help encourage creative writing .
Every dollar I raise will keep my spirits high as I write my way towards the realization of my creative dreams. More importantly, your contribution will help National Novel Writing Month and its Young Writers Program build a more engaged and inspiring world.
Thank you so much for your support of my writing and feel free to forward this to anyone that you know that loves writing!
