Friends, the 3-Day Novel Contest starts at 12:01am on Saturday. Hard to believe it’s almost here. I’m mostly not panicking…
You’ll be able to follow my during-contest adventures and lamentations on Twitter (#3DayNovel). I’ll also post another update here after the fact.
As for the fundraising, we’ve done remarkably well, with between $611 and $758 in total pledges (some variability for length and other conditions).
I wanted to note that for anyone who would prefer to make their donation to a comparable organization in Houston or elsewhere in east Texas, that is absolutely fine by me. However, I would encourage you to stick with local groups and, of course, do as much research as possible.
Otherwise, this is the current division of pledges (again with some variability):
- Americans for Immigrant Justice (current pledges: $152-$181)
- Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore (current pledges: $197-$256)
- Women’s Prison Association (current pledges: $172-$201)
Remember, the goal is $250 each and there’s still time to pledge!
With that, I will see you on the other side…
