Dear Friends, Family, and Righteous Supporters,
On November 20, the Office of Letters and Light will be bringing together the most mighty of endurance novelists for an event that will define our generation forever.
I'm speaking, of course, of National Novel Writing Month's Night of Writing Dangerously. It's a write-a-thon, and it will take place at the beautiful Julia Morgan Ballroom in downtown San Francisco. I will be there, writing my heart out and raising money for the Office of Letters and Light, NaNoWriMo's parent nonprofit.
Attendees like me must raise $250 to get in the door, and from there, a rich array of prizes, delicious food, and sumptuous writing time awaits. But this is not about me getting a treat-filled night of literary abandon. This is about children and adults getting the encouragement, structure, and inspiration they need to achieve their creative potential. Proceeds from the event will fund National Novel Writing Month's free creative writing programs in hundreds of schools and communities around the world.
The Office of Letters and Light does inspiration like nobody else (did I mention I'm writing an entire novel this November?). And on their behalf, I am asking you to donate.
This is an opportunity that will help me get a novel written in a short amount of time and will help push me into finishing it. November starts a marathon of writing for many people where we all write 50,000 words which is equivalent to a short novel. With this event it will give me the final push for the month along with allowing me to collaborate with other authors and have people backing me and helping me during the event.
Also, I will let you touch my raffle prizes if I win some.
Thank you for supporting me in my novel-writing quest, and for helping the Office of Letters and Light create a more engaged and inspiring world.
