I am thrilled that the 2022 Clarion West workshop is back in person, and a new cohort of writers gets to travel to Seattle and write, read & discuss speculative short fiction for 6 weeks. Congratulations & best wishes to all of them!
And to celebrate, I’m participating in the online Clarion West Write-a-Thon again. Both to get some serious writing done and to help to fundraise for the future Clarion West workshops.
My writing goals
My big & lofty goal for this Write-a-thon is to draft my neuroscience-inspired thriller, or at least get a solid start.
But my writing brain is very susceptible to new, shiny ideas, and I usually end up juggling multiple writing projects. [sigh]
So my more flexible goal is to add at least 500 words to one of my WIPs every day. Ideally, this WIP will be my thriller, but if it’s an unrelated short story that’s really calling to me, that’s okay too.
In addition, every day, I will feature a different speculative short fiction magazine, with links to their website and to their listing on the Submission Grinder.
