Last January Janelle over on her blog Writermorphosis challenged writers to donate cash to Room to Read based on how many words they write between February and April this year. She discovered that it costs about $2500 to build a library, and so she felt if enough children's writers pitched in we could raise enough funds to build one.
I just went to the Writermorphosis site and used her link to contribute funds (it takes you directly to the Room to Read site, and it shows that the funds are part of the Children's Writers United group). I found it very interesting to keep track of word count. In the first month I wrote quite a few words a day, but in the second month I wrote fewer words since I was doing more research and revision than new writing.
I'm sure it's not too late to contribute, if you've been looking for a way to donate some cash to a literary cause.
