There are 5 hours until NaNoWriMo 2012 and I’m stuck doing physics homework. But that’s okay. I know I say this every time I do it, but I love NaNoWriMo. It’s totally awesome and insanely fun! If you don’t believe me you should try it! This is run by a non-profit organization, which runs solely on donations. So each year they ask for people to fundraise so that they can fund all of their other programs and programs for children. This year, for sponsorships they have a website where you can sign up for a funding page and have people donate to the organization.
I have a funding page, where you can sponsor me, and hopefully keep me going until I finish the 50k. Amy’s NaNo Funds The link there is to my funding page. I’ll also put a widget underneath this post so that you can donate there. The donations are tax-deductable, and can be made at my page, the NaNoWriMo site, or at the OLL Store where you can buy merchandise and still donate.
So Figment.com has contests every once in a while, and sometimes I enter them just for the heck of it. This one was particularly fun because you needed to write an alibi for a fictitious murder that took place of an infamous editor. The contest ran until October 8th, and now voting runs until October 15th. Now I’m not saying that you should vote for me, because that would just feel like cheating. But if you go to this: http://figment.com/books/427340-I-Swear-it-Wasn-t-Me- link, you can get to my story, then if you click on the tag you can find the rest of the entries.
I highly recommend that you read them, they are really fantastic, and if you like writing you should sign up for an account on Figment, and feel free to follow me on there! You can only vote for the contestants by having a figment account and by hearting the stories. So if you just want to have an account so you can read and comment on awesome people’s writing I highly recommend you get an account for that as well. The people on this site are really fantastic.
