I just realized the lack of NaNoWriMo-related post in this blog, especially now, when it’s almost November. Nine days!
Anyway. This is my fifth year in NaNoWriMo, and my second year as Municipal Liaison for the Philippines, and I’ve always found Novembers magical (albeit stressful as choosing the perfect golf balls). NaNoWriMo has somehow helped me reach a bit of my dream of being a writer by forcing me to sit down and actually write, and I know how much this event means to other writers all over the world.
So this year, I want to give back to the community. As I write 50,000 words in the next month, it would really mean a lot to me too if you help me raise $100 (or more) for NaNoWriMo to help them with their costs this year. Every cent can help them maintain the community for the year, as well as funding the libraries they sponsor and their Young Writers Program. This would also mean NaNoWriMo would continue to exist for the next few years, bringing in more and more writers from all over the world and in the country as well.
I’ve set up my Firstgiving page here, and it would really mean a lot to me (and a whole lot of writers) if you can help me reach my goal. :) You can also choose to donate to NaNoWriMo directly, or better yet, join NaNoWriMo too! :P
