Friday Fun Facts: Writers Who CARE

I know I mentioned this a couple of weeks ago, and now I wanted to share the link to the Writers That Care blog. Here's some more specific information:

FIFTY PAGES FOR FIFTY DOLLARS: That's the 50/50 Project.

How will it work? Slated to launch at CARE INTERNATIONAL on October 1st, 2011, the 50/50 PROJECT will allow anyone who makes a donation of $50.00 to submit 50 pages double-spaced of a work-in-progress for a 1-2 page critique by one of the participating authors. When the project goes live on October 1st, 2011, the link to CARE INTERNATIONAL to make a donation this this project will be posted on the MAKE A DONATION page above.

Please consider participating - or at least, please share this information with others. It's a great cause!

Monday Mentionables: The Week in Review (in Pictures)

Ahhhhhhhh....I know I was absent from here all last week! Between flying back and forth across the country, starting school (boy that alarm clock goes off early!), and losing Internet service due to flooding from Hurricanes Irene and Lee, I just couldn't get here.

To make up for it, here's a Monday morning photo montage. Enjoy!

In memorial of 9/11: Damaged sphere from one of the Twin Towers + the eternal flame in Battery Park

One of the roads I take daily (but not that day last week) on my commute to work each day...
