So, since there was no way I could participate in The Clarion Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers’ Workshop at UCSD this year, I decided to do the next best thing and sign up for their fundraising Write-a-Thon. I’ve got a page at the site (click on the badge to the right to go to it) and am now soliciting donations for the project. Details are all on the Write-a-Thon page. I’m looking forward to being pushed to write more.
I write a lot now, but I need to branch out, to take the confidence I’ve been building with the columns and reviews and write more fiction without letting apprehension get the best of me. It’s all about being willing to suck, at this point, and keep writing and developing.
