Back after a Break

After my partisan comments and wrangling at the start of the month, I made a conscious decision to lay off posting for a while.

This past week I visited the doctor, and he changed my diabetes medicine. Diabetes is the only diseases that I recall has irritability as a symptom. My blood sugar had been getting kinda outta whack; I'm glad I got it taken care of.

Like everyone in Texas I'm working on my submission for the World Fantasy Con themed Robert E. Howard anthology. The "dreadline" is May 15th.

This past week I got my SFWA membership packet in the mail. I got copies of the most recent publications, the membership directory, some reference materials and my membership card. I signed the card with a ten-year old pen I have left over from the paper I used to own (a little symbolism there) and stuck it in my wallet.

Since I've only had one qualifying sale, I'm an associate member for now.

  1. Congrats on the membership, Lou! We all start off somewhere--but now you've got the magical member directory, which is one of the best perks in the club. You also qualify for free SFF.net access now, and can post in the private SFWA message boards. Flamewars break out regularly, but it's still a great place to meet interesting folks.

    Sorry I missed your call last week. Was helping my brother chop and mulch cedar on his land. Hot, sweaty work that is, yes.

Right now I have a dozen short stories sitting in various slushpiles awaiting decisions, and eight stories accepted and pending publication...
