|It's time to be superheroes!|
I'm excited and scared.
After half a dozen or so attempts, I'm starting to feel like I actually know what I'm doing, JUST A BIT, when it comes to writing an actual book. So why not make it all the more terrifying/challenging by setting a goal to raise $200 for girls' education and letting everyone know my word count progress as I dive into my next draft?
|So excited. Not nervous, no.|
Educating girls is how we save the world. The more girls and women have access to education, the more the myriad problems the world faces improve. And improving the lives of girls and women is essential in itself.
So, National Novel Writing Month is coming up (with a superhero theme this year). And authors Susan Dennard and Kat Brauer are organizing a fundraising team called The Mighty Pens. I'm going to seek sponsors who will give a set amount or pledge per word I write, and I will write a novel (or at least most of a draft, 50,000 words) in November.

|Look, it's you!|
