Hello all 1N10D supporters! …
Hello all 1N10D supporters! I have two final messages about the project.

1. All payments finally cleared and received by Voices UnBroken. Victoria Sammartino (founder and executive director) was extremely grateful and wanted me to pass on her thanks and to let you know that the funding will directly support their summer workshops in restrictive residential settings throughout the city (including Rikers Island and both of NYC's secure juvenile detention facilities: Horizon Juvenile Center and Crossroads Juvenile Center). The money is obviously not a game changer but she says it adds untold value to her and her team to know that people are aware and supportive. She was extremely grateful.

2. If you didn't hear through other channels, the project caught the attention of our local NPR affiliate and was featured as one of the Summer Fiction Series on WFCR. If you're curious you can hear the interview here: http://www.nepr.net/summerfiction. (it's w/ me, since Eddie, as usual, didn't show up. But yes, I do read a couple of sections...) It was great 'icing on the cake' and nice to know that the 1N10D ideas held some intrigue to a larger audience.

That's it - thanks again for tuning in and supporting the project. If you're curious about our latest concepts/undertakings/factoids check out:

In case you're not following Facebook or my blog, just wanted to let you know that the 1N10D challenge is officially completed. 50k words written in 10 almost-consecutive days. It was an adventure. To read more about the experience or to see some of the product, check out this post that also has some links for download: http://www.mathewlebowitz.com/blog_detail.php?id=41
Thanks again for humoring the unusual project and for supporting Voices Unbroken. It was much appreciated all around.

Having surpassed my Voices Unbroken fundraiser goal (thank you again), we now prepare to launch the personal challenge part of the project, that is to write 5000 words per day for 10 not-quite-consecutive days. And as promised the process will be 'broadcast'. If you're curious, or want to keep Eddie honest, or just want to take a peek at the action, feel free to check out the LiveStream, starting tomorrow at about 8am: http://www.livestream.com/mrree. I can't guarantee the quality of either the broadcast or the content, but it should be AT LEAST as fascinating as watching paint dry. Until then...
