Nick's frothing about self-publishing again. Of course, he's right.

And truepenny's story "Straw" is up at Strange Horizons. And it should be read.

Meanwhile, I'm making soup because I haven't yet settled down enough to write.

Although my box from Amazon did come. I just remembered that. Calloo! Callay!

The Horror, the Horror...!

I saw the HWA membership requirements update. Yeah, Nick's right -- I recently wrote an LJ entry about self-publishing myself. But I think he's just a tad too worked up about it, particularly since the rules change supports his position and helps to minimize the problem he's railing about.

If someone takes the easy path, if they cheat to qualify for membership in any professional writers' organization... you'd think that eventually this will catch up with them and the truth will be revealed. Cheating won't turn a bad writer into a good one. And if a good writer cheats, that's just stupid and self-destructive.

That's actually Nick in resting rant mode. Nick worked up is something to behold. Major metropolitan areas are instituting federally funded programs to cope as we speak....

So does Harlan actually have some competition--?
