I was perusing the latest Volume of Clarkesworld on line, and noticed they were recruiting citizens, so I decided to sign on. I’m a Burgermeister now; I may have to add that title to my business card.
I came across a couple of interesting author’s blogs, too. One author has been tracking his writing progress for several years in a spreadsheet, which had the effect of both making me think this particular author is either incredibly anal or organized, but more importantly, how little I have actually done as a writer. So now I’m depressed and motivated to write more.
Another author re-introduced me to Orson Scott Card’s website and information about his writing workshop. That might be another objective in this aspiring author’s list of Everests to climb.
