Well, I was looking for a way to get motivated to start writing again in September, after taking most of August off. And lo and behold, along comes the fabulous Unleash Your Story event!

This is like a text-based equivalent of a fundraising run or walk. It’s all about setting writing OR reading goals to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a worthy cause indeed. Because everything’s more fun in teams, we’re starting a Chocolate Mafia team (nothing like a little FanLit nostalgia!). If you click on the banner above, you can go to my fundraising page and either make a pledge to support me and the team (I’ve committed to writing 20,000 words in September) or better yet, join the team yourself and set a goal of your own. Those Unleash Your Story people are smart…they’ve got prizes.

    The other cool thing for writers there are fantastic prizes for top fundraisers. More are rolling in all the time. (We need to find enough people to win them all!)

    I’m in. I need the extra pressure to complete by the end of September right now.

    It’s like they ran this event just so I’ll finish my MS on time!

    I’m in Tessa. All I have left to do is to send in my writing goals.

    Thanks for this!

    I signed up over the weekend. I admit I wasn’t that pumped then but I’ve upped my personal writing goal already because I’m really excited. This is just what I needed to get my butt…errr…fingers in gear!

    Thanks for all your hard work, Tessa!
