I Join SFWA

No returns still - what can I say? I don't get mail, I don't post. A simple life, really. But the mail did bring me something fun today: my membership package for active membership in SFWA! My regional director is our own Linda (hi Linda!) They sent me all kind of interesting stuff, including directions on the secret handshake. Hee hee! I know it's an odd thing to get excited about, since it doesn't make me a writer anymore than owning a typewriter or living in Paris or having an agent. However, it just makes me feel like a writer. Besides, now I can look forward to being added to a number of exciting mailing lists (whoo, you should see some of the mail I've gotten since I joined ALA and listed an interest in technology - a full-color glossy from a publisher advertising a new resource, The Dictionary of Concrete. I kid you not).
