Race to Finish My First Novel

Dear Friends, Family, and Righteous Supporters,

If you've ever seen my Facebook page, twitter feed, meetup group or talked to me in person you've heard me talk about National Novel Writer's Month.  I've particpated in this insane and inspiring program for 8 years and as a result have 8 partially finished novels.

This year I'm particpating in the three Camp NaNoWriMo events so that I can FINISH one of my novels.  Just ONE after eight years of effort, I want to complete JUST ONE! So this month, I'm going to camp. It's a virtual creative-writing camp called Camp NaNoWriMo. While I'm there, I'll be finishing off my ~125K word first draft of Gaia Chained (working title).

It's time to give back!  Since National Novel Writer's month and their managing nonprofit called the Office of Letters and Light is helping me achief my writing dreams, I want to help them keep their brilliant light burning bright. They believe that everyone has a story inside of them—a lesson I'm taking to heart. Every dollar I raise will push me that much closer towards realizing my creative goals.  I've donanted as much as I can so I'm asking my friends and family to support me and this amazing program with a small (or large) donation to this worthy cause.

Your donation will also help fund the Young Writers Program and the Come Write In program for libraries and independent bookstores. As part of this community of inspired writers, I know that encouraging people of every stripe to tell their stories will help build a more engaged, diverse, and inspiring world. With your help, we can make sure the unvoiced stories in classrooms, libraries, and communities all across the world are brought to light.

Thank you so much for your support!

Sincerely

Chris Bailey

Green Coffee, Anyone tried it?

I don't ever believe that weight loss pills or "fad" diets are worth looking into.  But if this "green coffee" can actually give me my caffeine fix while helping loose weight, I might check it out.  Has anyone used it?

I appreciate the sentiment...but if all of congress gave back 5% would it really sequester, save workers salaries? Would it be more then just a gesture?  http://buff.ly/XRumG8

Roger Ebert, One of the few critics that understood the meaning of critique and the value it can bring to art if done well. His wit and insight will be missed in the world of entertainment. http://www.suntimes.com/news/metro/17320958-418/roger-ebert-dies-at-70-after-battle-with-cancer.html
