I wish that I was painting our kitchen table black right now, but I’m not. I’m home alone with the kids and I just know that there will be black paint fingerprints everywhere unless I have somebody else to run interference. So I’ll bounce to the second thing on my list…SFWA and HWA.
I’m looking into joining either the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America or the Horror Writers Association. I was checking out the requirements online, and I think that might be something that I need right now: another goal. I’d like to boost the quality of my work, and I’d like to try a higher tier of market. If I don’t constantly challenge myself, I get bored and rather lazy, and there are few things that I hate worse.
But I’m not certain yet. Would these associations be something that I’d like, or would they be more noise? Is anybody here a member of either? Pros? Cons? Will they give me the push that I need, or will I run screaming? Please chime in, if you can. I would really appreciate it.
My lawn? Is coming up lush and bright green. Pigeons fear me. Just sayin’.
