Write-a-Thon Team: Awkward Robots
I attended Clarion in 2012, which means I have lots of good examples to follow. I am following slowly.
I love non-human POVs. I tend to concentrate first on plot and second on character. I care about making what I write approachable. Having graduated with a history degree, I'm more qualified to write (and write more) fantasy than science fiction, and I take excruciating pains to get my historical facts right. Because my paying job is as an editor, I can generally keep the number of grammatical and structural errors low.
I want to finish first drafts of two short stories from which to choose for the third Awkward Robots (Clarion Class of 2012) Anthology, the Yellow Volume (http://awkwardrobots.org/), which we're working on during the write-a-thon. Because my sons are 6 years and one-and-a-half, your contributions and my commitment to meeting my goal to you are probably the only things that could get me through two drafts that quickly.
I'd like to raise $200 for Clarion while working on my writing this summer.
