Things on my mind

I’ve been a bit quite lately, mostly because I’ve been working vigorously on my stories for the CSFF Writer’s Workshop coming up in just under a month. Don’t worry, though. I plan to blog the experience thoroughly.

Viable Paradise
After due consideration, I have decided to not apply to Viable Paradise. I still think VP would be a great workshop and I plan to apply next year but I think that I’ll be better of spending the time writing and getting stories into circulation. With a years worth of rejections under my belt I think I’ll get more out of VP.

Work In Progress
The current WIP is nearly completion. It will be the third story used for the CSFF Writer’s Workshop. I should have had my three stories finished before I applied but I didn’t.

Conventions
Wiscon was this past weekend but I did not go. I’m a little leery about a convention billed as feminist. Now, don’t get me wrong; I’m not one of those old codgers that think a woman’s place is in the kitchen. I don’t think talent is limited by gender, race, class or creed. Then again, it looks like Dave sure had some fun. The only convention dedicated to fiction I’ve attended was WindyCon several years ago and that only for a day. The upcoming Heinlein Centennial will be my first overnight stay at a convention. If Penguicon is any comparison, it should be an entertaining time.

  1. I’m glad to see you’re writing, and looking into workshops and cons.

    Good luck with the submissions!

  2. Sorry, I should identify myself. I’m Deleterious’ (from Ars) wife. I pop over every so often to see how the writing is going.

  3. Oh, I remember you Maggie! The book you got for me as my Ars secret santa is still one of my favorites!
