I should be on a ten hour bus ride to Berlin right now buttttt we kind of missed the bus. However, I can’t pretend I’m not relieved! From the beginning I had a bad feeling about this little get away and it’s for the better. It’s pouring this weekend anyways so better to just stay in by the fire! Not time to be a tourist! Besides, we are going to the US next weekend and Id rather stay home and get ourselves organized for that! Berlin…you’ll just have to wait!
I have some WÜNDERBAR news!! I wrote a short story (1000 words max is hard to do!) for CausePub which is an inspiring organization that publishes books in order to fund a specific cause. This particular project is going to provide clean water to those in need and what a cool thing that is! I share a crazy story about how I’m not a couch potato and bam! People are drinking clean water!!!Well, almost…
To see more about this particular cause watch this, its empowering:
Yesterday I got the news that my story passed the first step and was approved for the voting process! Now I need your help! The more votes, the higher the possibility that my story makes it into the book. Then a few things will happen:
1. I get to say I’m a published writer!!! Eeeeeek! Dream come true!!
2. I will be able to sleep at night knowing that because of my story (and many other awesome stories) there are people drinking clean water. For every book sold, three families in Africa will drink clean water for a year. How incredible is that?!?!?
3. I can see who votes for me (so you bet I’ll be adding you either to the naughty or nice list…) which means…I will put the names of everyone who voted into a drawing to win some pretty cool German stuff!! This may include a typical German beer stein and other fun things!
Here is how you vote!
Go to this link: Cause Pub Story – Click Here!
Once there…read the story…laugh at the mental image of me going through that strange ordeal.
Then…at the top of the page where there is a big orange button (this should show the number of votes so far). Click the orange button or click on the “thumbs up” orange button right below!
You can verify your vote through Facebook or twitter and then Bam!!! You just helped save a life….or helped to provide clean water but either way, you did a good thing!! Thank you for giving me a fighting chance to also chase my dream a bit!
Until next time, Readers!!!! xoxoxoxoxox

Books and good causes? What an excellent project! I’d never heard of it before.
The Towel Thief thing made me laugh! You’re braver than me – I still haven’t risked the naked saunas yet!
Used Twitter to vote – I’m Gingerbread_bee.
You should submit a story!! Totally fun! 🙂
Thank god you told me you voted through twitter because for whatever reason it’s not notifying me when people vote through twitter only Facebook! I wrote your name down for the drawing!!!
And thank you so much for the vote!!!
