Raising the bar on my NaNo journey this April

People take part in NaNoWriMo for a multitude of reasons, but ultimately it stems from a shared passion to write. My personal reasons are intertwined with my desire for greater structure in my writing life and to share the experience with like-minded people.

This time around, at CampNaNoWriMo I wanted to make a bigger commitment and raise money at the same time. As with many writers, I live, breathe and dream in words. Stories are important to any community and can be the glue that holds us together. NaNoWriMo understands the value of that and gives back in a variety of ways.

As well as encouraging wrimos to take part, including programs that nurture the younger generation, they create events for those who love to write, all over the world.

I believe this should be celebrated. This level of commitment, support and a sense of community has developed me as a person and, quite simply, I want to give back.

So, I wanted to make you aware of my Fundraising Page and a few additions I’ve added recently as an incentive for those wishing to donate. Here is a breakdown of what I have on offer.

1-5 dollars – You will get a personal thank you from me in my novel Worlds Apart, which will be published at the end of the year.

5-10 dollars – As well as the mention, you will receive a free personalised miniature pocket book.

10-20 dollars – In addition to my appreciation and the gift, you can name a supporting character in Worlds Apart and decide whether they are friend of foe.

20 dollars + You get all the prizes, plus the chance to name a main character in the sequel to Worlds Apart.

Here’s a snapshot of the pocket book;

If you’d like to order extra you can find them here. All proceeds will go towards the fundraising.

If you would like to know more about my journey at Camp I will be posting an update mid-way through the month.

Thanks for your support.

Good on you for doing what you can to give back. Best of luck with NaNoWriMo too, you’re a brave writer 😉

Thanks, I appreciate that. And I don’t know about brave, but I like to try new things. I’m covering my bases too, and organising things in addition to the online stuff 🙂

I'd love to hear from you.
