I'm stoked to be participating again in Blazing Laptops, a wild day of writing till the fingers are sore, socializing with the great folks at San Diego Writers, Ink, and then more writing. This is the only fund-raisign campaign for this organization that provides writing classes, publishes local writers, and works to bolster the writing community here in San Diego, so I'm thrilled to participate in some small to help further the mission of this great community of writers!
My personal goal for this year's 8 hour Blazing Laptops marathon will be to revise at least 3 chapters of my novel in progress. This is something that would usually take me weeks to do, given my current writing schedule, but I plan to achieve it in one sitting. I have a first draft done, and I'm about half way through revising it. I'm sincerely looking forward to this stretch of unbridled writing time in helping to propel me to the finish line and complete this final draft.
Thanks in advance for your generous support of the arts in our community!

Blazing Laptops Write-a-thon is our annual fundraising event for your favorite literary nonprofit: San Diego Writers, Ink. It’s a time to get together to write, raise money for a good cause, write, enjoy time with other writers, and WRITE.
We provide the space, writing prompts for those who want them, plus snacks and fun activities. The participants write! All participants must either be sponsored for the minimum of $150 or pay that amount themselves in order to be a part of the experience. The writers in the Write-a-Thon get a certificate for their attendance, plus the fun of the day itself. Incentives and prizes are given for people who raise the most money for SDWI.
Everyone is invited to participate. Minimum sponsorship is $150 in pledges which can come in all amounts, $5 to $500 or more. Support a writer and the writing community at the same time by donating in the name of a writer who has a fundraising page here!
